Barbeque Pork Ribs

May 28, 2019 |

Recipe courtesy of Chef Walter Royal and Chef Scott James.
as seen on episode “Pork | Goldsboro, NC“, Season 8

Serves 8


  • 8-10 racks of Pork Ribs (either baby back or St. Louis style)
  • Salt
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Honey


Wash ribs thoroughly
Place in pot covered with water & 2 tablespoons of salt
Cover and let simmer to boil for 30-45 minutes

An alternate way to use this method is to place ribs in a baking pan, cover with foil, and simmer in the oven for 1.5 hours @ 350°

Once simmered, drain and let cool overnight (preferred…but at least 5 hours)

Mix your favorite BBQ sauce with equal parts honey – mix well
Brush ribs and cook on the grill over medium heat for 10 minutes

Serve with extra sauce

Kitchen Tip: Simmer more ribs than needed and freeze for use another time.

    I just caught the tail end of the rib segment, and it looked like the BBQ sauce was added to the ribs befor chilling overnight. Is that right?

      Pat, here is the link to the recipe. You simmer the ribs, chill them down, sauce them and then grill them. Enjoy!!

    Watched the episode last night and I am seeing that the Recipe on line is different. If not mistaken they cooked or boiled the ribs for 2.5 hours at 275. the on line recipe states 350 for 1.50 hour. does it matter or this just making it more generic than what occurs at the barn?

    • Flavor, NC says:

      Yes, at the Angus Barn they cooked them longer at a lower temperature. You can cook them either way.

    Lisa why is the recipe different on line than the one on the progam that I watched last night? I love your show but it was a little off showed

    Lisa why was the recipe different on line than the show I watched last night. Showed only two racks of ribs and they were put into the oven. Also on the show was Angus Barn and on line shows Goldsboro nc
    I have always loved your program but I find most recipes I try to follow from tv to on line there is something left off and to me that makes a big differenee

      Yes, at the Angus Barn they cooked them longer at a lower temperature. Cooking in a restaurant is different than cooking at home so the recipe you see online will vary slightly from what is shown on television. We get the recipes directly from the chef and since it is their recipe, we do not change them. They try and write the recipe for the home cook. You simmer the ribs, chill them down, sauce them and then grill them or you can cook them in the oven instead of simmering them. The oven method is an alternate way of cooking them instead of boiling them. I hope this helps! They are delicious and very easy – just takes some time with the 5 hour or overnight refrigeration time.
