Adam's Ribs



I don't remember where I found this recipe but it was somewhere out there in cyberspace about 5 or 6 years ago. It has been a family favorite ever since I first made it. I have made few changes to it over the years. Once in awhile I add grilled peach halves to it as a side dish and a peach/mango chutney for a summertime dish. *Note: They will not carry the taste of Dr. Pepper, so if you don't like Dr.Pepper don't worry!
