In a large pot, combine 6 cups of cola, 1 chopped onion, and 6 cloves of garlic. Bring to a boil, add ribs, reduce heat, and simmer for about an hour. In a separate large saucepan, combine butter, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, and 1 ½ cup of cola. Simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce begins to thicken. Let sauce cool and puree in a blender. Heat grill, brush ribs with the sauce, and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. Serve with additional sauce.
