My family loves this recipe and I always have to triple it when the entire gang is home. I usually have to make three to four slabs, because my family loves this and any leftover ribs taste great when reheated.—Terri Kandell, Addison, Michigan Teacher, Brooklyn Elementary, Brooklyn, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup root beer
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs

Directions

In a large saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Set aside 3 cups for basting and serving.
Brush remaining sauce over ribs. Place bone side down on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 325° for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until tender.
Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill ribs, covered, over medium heat for 15-25 minutes or until browned, turning and brushing occasionally with some of the reserved sauce. Cut into serving-size pieces; serve with sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
