After removing the membrane cut the 2 rib racks into pieces about 3 - 4 ribs each.
Pour in the Pepsi or Coke to completely cover them.
Bring the ribs to a gentle simmer and begin cooking them for about 2 hours in the Pepsi or Coke.

Remove the ribs from the pot and place them on a large tray or pan.
Prepare the bbq ribs for the grill by pouring your favorite BBQ sauce over them completely covering them.
When the grill has reached cooking temperature place them on the grill bone side down and cover the lid.
