Any Cherry Coke fans here? This recipe is a must for you. This recipe from Char-Griller Ambassadors @PittBoysBBQ takes the classic techniques of smoking ribs and combines them with a Cherry Coke twist that is sure to please Cherry Coke and ribs lovers alike.


  • Remove the membrane from the ribs
  • Apply a binder (we used mustard) and season liberally with Char-Griller Ribs Rub
  • Load up the Gravity 980 Smoker with your fuel of choice
    • Of course we used Cherry wood to compliment the Cherry Coke
  • Set the temperature to 250*F and let the ribs smoke for an hour before spritzing
  • Spritz your ribs with Cherry Coke every hour for 4 hours
  • For the last hour, wrap the ribs in foil and add some butter and ¼ cup of Cherry Coke
  • In a bowl combine 1 cup of BBQ sauce with ½ cup Cherry Coke and whisk together
  • Unwrap your ribs and glaze with the Cherry Coke BBQ Sauce and smoke for an additional 10-15 minutes
  • Slice these up and enjoy!
