Dr Pepper Ribs

Dr Pepper Ribs


1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 teaspoons of mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne
2 teaspoons of chipotle chile pepper (made from smoked dried jalapenos - you should be able to find it in the spice section of your grocery store)
1/2 teaspoon allspice

2 cups Dr Pepper
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup mustard
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons molasses
2-4 teaspoons of chipotle powder ( I used 2 tsp.)

Two racks of ribs
1/4 cup Dr Pepper


Coat the ribs with the rub, wrap in plastic and place in the refrigerator for at least four hours.  Heat the oven to 300 degrees and bring the ribs to room temperature.  In a foil-lined large baking or roasting pan, arrange the ribs with the meat side up, pour in 1/4 cup of Dr Pepper, cover pan tightly with foil and place in the oven.  Meanwhile, place all the glaze ingredients in a pan, bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes until thick and syrupy.  After an hour and a half, take the ribs out of the oven and spread some of the glaze on each side of the racks.  Place back in the oven, meat side up and cook uncovered for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, take out the ribs and spread more glaze over them and cook for 30 more minutes or until ribs are desired tenderness.  At this point, take the ribs out of the oven, spread more glaze on them and then cook each side under the broiler for four minutes.  Divide and serve!
