    Nat Da Brat's Note:

    This is a copy kat recipe from the famous Bar "B" Barn restaurant in Montreal. Simmer the ribs early in the day and then refrigerate until ready to BBQ. This recipe is for pork but beef ribs can be substituted with no problem.

      This recipe is excellent. The ribs were so tender and tasty. I have never been to Bar "B" Barn so I couldnt tell you if they taste the same but this recipe is out of this world. I will be making this again. Thank you for posting it.

      This recipe really made my Fourth of July BBQ a success! Great flavor. Very easy to prepare. I definitely will be using it again. I used this recipe with regular ribs.

      I have had this same recipe for over 30 years now. I never posted it here because there are already 2 of them. So I am going to post my pics here. I have always loved these ribs. I parboil the ribs for about 1/2 hour. I spread half the sauce on the ribs and bake for an hour then turn them and spread the other half of sauce and bake another hour. These are absolutely delicious ribs, sweet but delicious.
