Rizzo’s The Riz’s Ribs
The “rub” used in Rizzo’s rib recipe comes from Willingham’s in Memphis, Tennessee.
3 slabs baby back ribs, already trimmed
3 small cans pineapple juice
1 bottle Wham seasoning or BBQ rub
BBQ sauce of your choice
1 can Classic Coca-Cola
Two nights before cooking, soak ribs overnight in pineapple juice.
The night before cooking, rub down ribs (both sides) with seasoning and let
sit until the next morning.
Do not remove or rinse rub from ribs, stand ribs up in roaster with small
amount of water on the bottom and bake at 350ºF for 2 hours (less time for
only 1 or 2 slabs), occasionally baste the slabs with can of Classic Coke.
Remove from oven and let sit for 2 hours (cool off period).
Finish on either an oven broiler or outdoor grill, saucing at least 5 times
on both back and front of the slabs, about 15-25 minutes. Ribs will melt in
