I marinate and pre-bake my ribs to enhance flavor and tenderness. Many barbecue purists would frown upon my technique but I feel that is produces the best finished product! Ribs are an excellent meals for Labor Day and other holidays. They pair well with baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, corn and a variety of other tasty side-items. I marinate my ribs in the fridge the night before in a casserole dish that is tightly-covered with foil. For my marinade, I drench my ribs in cola. I then top by ribs with freshly-sliced onion, garlic, lemon and barbecue salt. It’s simple but effective. Sometimes I’ll toss on a little Moore’s Marinade too. The reason for this process is to enhance tenderness and flavor. Ultimately, the most important flavor of ribs will come from the smoker, during the post-bake smoke. Enjoy and share with others too!
