Customer Recipe: BBQ Ribs

We’ve recently received this delicious BBQ Ribs recipe from one of our customers, David Smith. This recipe is perfect for Summer BBQ’s and entertaining friends as the majority of the cooking process is done in the slow cooker, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy time with your guests whilst the ribs are cooking and then they just need a quick blast on the BBQ before serving.

BBQ Ribs Ingredients (Generously serves 4)

  • Two racks of ribs (make sure the ribs will fit into your slow cooker)
  • Two cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of apple juice
  • One large onion (chopped into 4)
  • One vegetable stock cube (the soft jelly cubes)
  • 100g Butchers Sundries BBQ Glaze

Place into your slow cooker the following;

  • Two cups of water
  • Onion
  • Vegetable stock cube
  • Ribs with the bone side facing down

Leave in the slow cooker on high setting for 3 1/2 hours or until till tender. Remove the ribs when done and pat dry.

Once you have dried the ribs you need to mix the BBQ Glaze with the apple juice to make a paste and spread over on both sides of ribs.

Then place the ribs on a tray or plate to marinade, cover with foil and leave for approximately 30 minutes. Once marinaded, place on BBQ for 10 mins each side or under the grill for 10 min each side. Then simply cut into single ribs and serve.


  • Only use enough of the apple juice to make enough paste to cover the ribs on both sides
  • The soft jelly stock cubes are best
  • This recipe is also great for chicken wings and legs or belly pork slices but you will need to change the cooking times
