Great Canadian Barbecue Recipes
Contributed by: News Canada
(NC) - It's no secret that Canadians love their barbecue. As the temperatures heat up, Canadians head out to the backyard to spend sunny afternoons with friends and family cooking up a feast on the grill. Canadian Club Barbecue Sauces are the perfect way to compliment this truly Canadian summer experience.
Ryan Jennings, co-author of Cooking with Booze suggests adding an extra dose of Canadian flavour with recipes containing Canadian Club Barbecue Sauce. Canadian Club Barbecue Sauce is the only barbecue and steak sauce, the only barbecue and steak sauce on the market made with real Canadian Club whisky, to help make your barbecue the hit of the summer!
Canadian Club Sticky Ribs
- 2 racks pork back ribs
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) extra virgin olive oil

- 1 tsp (5 mL) salt
- 2 tbsp (25 mL) Canadian Club whisky or water
- 3/4 cup (175 mL) Canadian Club Chicken and Ribs Barbecue Sauce
Preheat grill to low.
Trim excess fat and remove membrane from underside of ribs then rub with olive oil. Combine paprika, cumin, pepper and salt and rub onto both sides of ribs. Drizzle ribs with Canadian Club or water then wrap racks separately in 2 layers of aluminum foil and place on grill, meat side up. Close lid and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove foil from ribs and continue cooking with the lid open for 20 to 30 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or so. Brush with Canadian Club Hickory Bold Barbecue Sauce and cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer, turning once. Cut into 3-bone pieces and serve.
