1 cup of lemon-lime soda, such as 7UP
1 cup ketchup
1 cup of your favorite sweet red BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray’s – Sweet Vidalia Onion flavored sauce)
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Place the soda, ketchup, liquid smoke, black pepper, and BBQ sauce in a saucepan and whisk to mix. Bring the sauce to a simmer over medium heat and let it simmer gently until thick and richly flavored, 10-15 minutes.
Succulent and perfect for BABY BACK RIBS!
