Dr. Pepper and Coke

Post  ChrisHewitt on Tue Jul 01, 2008 1:55 pm

Has anyone used these as part of the Marinade for Ribs etc? I have been recommended to use Dr. Pepper but have never had the guts to try it.

Though I've never personally used it, I have friends who use both pretty regularly. In fact, one of the best bbq sauce recommendations came from a buddy of mine who made some up with Dr. Pepper recently. Here's his recipe...

Dr. Pepper BBQ Sauce

 6oz Dr. Pepper
 2 Cups Ketchup
 1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
 1/2 Cup Vinegar
 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
 2 TBS Molasses
 2 TBS Yellow Mustard
 1 TBS Tabasco Sauce
 1 TBS Rub (your favorite)
 1 TSP Liquid Smoke
 1 TSP Black Pepper
 1 TBS Lemon Juice
 1 Clove Garlic (minced)
 1/3 Cup Chopped Onion
 1 Jalapeno (seeded & minced)

Place ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer about 30 minutes. Depending on how you minced the garlic and jalapeno , you can place sauce in a blender to get rid of the chunks.

I have yet to try it, but he says it's one of the best he's had and/or made.

Here is on e that I use and like, so do my classes. I use it both for ribs and brisket sometimes.

Dr.Pepper Marinade and Mop:

8 oz. Dr. Pepper
1/2 cup Pineapple Nectar (Jumex)
1/4 cup water
2 TB. White Vinegar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar.

I would make the recipe times 2. Marinate Brisket for 10- 12 hours.

Good Luck!
Chef Richard

Well, I took the recipe for the marinade and gave some ribs 24 hours in it before smoking them on Sunday. My neighbour was holding a first birthday party for Jimmy so I took them round. They were gone in 10 minutes - great feedback and they all loved the taste and could not believe that Dr. Pepper was the marinade base!

I think that the 'Chef Richard' is Richard W McPeake - if it is then I know the guy - I went on one of his courses whilst I was in the states.

Glad they worked out for you! I have yet to try it, but perhaps at my next contest coming up.

Just coke on its own or do you use that as the base for a marinade and then inject that?

Inject the coke straight in... you can add some of your spices, or mix it with other ingredients if you like.

Digging up an old thread here but I wondered if anyone else has tried the Dr Pepper and pineapple marinade? If so, how was it and did you use any other rubs, sauces or seasonings on it?

I'm thinking about trying it with some brisket and wondering if it will end up being too sweet on its own.

Cheers,
Mark
