  • 1 rack pork spare ribs about 3-4 lbs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 C orange soda
  • 3/4 C prepared BBQ sauce
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C orange juice concentrate
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce or to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • Trim ribs and cut into sections of 3 or 4 bones each. Season front and back with salt and Montreal Steak seasoning and place in a baking dish in a single layer. Pour just enough orange soda over the ribs to cover them half-way.
  • Cover dish tightly with foil and bake for about 2 hours or until the meat is tender but not quite falling off the bone.
  • Remove ribs from baking juices and place on a lined baking sheet.
  • Prepare sauce by combining BBQ sauce, brown sugar, orange juice concentrate (not orange juice), and hot sauce in a small sauce pan and heat on the stove until sugar is dissolved.
  • Brush sauce over cooked ribs and place under the broiler for about 4 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with more sauce. Return to the oven and continue to cook until the sauce is bubbly and slightly charred.
