Recipe: Jamaican-Style Barbecue Ribs


Jamaican-Style Barbecue Ribs

Ribs have always been one of my favourite things growing up. I used to love all kinds of rib dishes, like breaded short ribs, rib tips, barbecued ribs, etc. It’s a great comfort food and a dish that really brings people together. One of my favourite ways to eat ribs is with a Jamaican-Style rub, that really packs a good kick to it.
