Look no further… our pork ribs recipe is easy and delicious!

Ribs from the Butcher Shop at Freson Bros. are the key ingredient to our tender BBQ Ribs

For this delicious pork rib Recipe, we start with Stubb’s BBQ Rub, and slow roast for several hours on low (either in the oven or on your smoker!) and finish them on the grill with a zesty and bold Whiskey Barbecue Sauce made from scratch. These juicy and succulent Ribs are perfect for alfresco dining, picnics and enjoying all summer long! 

Here’s What you Need:

  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Hot Sauce
  • 2 Green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat your oven or smoker to 300 degrees F
  2. Season Ribs with Stubbs BBQ Rub then wrap in tin foil
  3. Place in oven or smoker for 2-4 hours (the longer, the better!)
  4. Meanwhile, make your Whiskey Barbecue sauce by combining ketchup, mustard, Whiskey, hot sauce, Worcestershire Sauce and brown sugar in a small mixing bowl
  5. Heat up your barbecue/ grill
  6. 10 mins prior to serving, transfer ribs to barbecue and remove top layer of tin foil (keeping foil on bottom)
  7. Generously slather Whiskey Barbecue sauce on ribs and let cook, uncovered another ten minutes.
  8. Remove from heat, garnish with sliced green onion and ENJOY!

Our delicious pork ribs recipe starts with the right rubbing salt

We place the ribs in the oven to trap in the flavour.

Stubb's Rubb is the key to our BBQ sauce recipe

Cooking ribs on the BBQ gives it that smoky flavour and make the tastiest ribs.

Sprinkle green onion on top of the ribs to add a little colour.

Delicious ribs that the whole family will love.

Get the napkins ready because these tender ribs are sticky and delicious!
