Nana Michelle Aloha Recipes Bake & BBQ Pork Ribs with Jack Daniels Marinade


I wanted to do something different this year for our Memorial Day BBQ and when I saw Foodland had a sale on their Pork Ribs for $1.29 a pound yep the light bulb came on and the idea was born to marinade the Pork Ribs in a tried and true delicious Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce Marinade for 24 hours. These turned out so incredibly delicious I can’t even begin to describe it lol except to say the look on Bo who is one of my sons from another mother and another father’s face when he tasted this as he was slicing it looked like he had just tasted a bit of heaven.

This can also be done with Beef and Chicken so enjoy.

 Make the Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce Marinade according to the directions here and make plenty (I double this recipe because I never make less than 5 lbs. of meat and because this is so delicious and you can use it on so many other things):

Jack Daniels Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Author: David Durick


  • Jack Daniels, about ½ to ¾ cup, or to taste
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • ⅓ cup vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ¾ cup molasses
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
  • ½ teaspoon Tabasco sauce, or to taste


1. Combine onion, garlic and Jack Daniels in a 3 quart saucepan.

2. Sauté until translucent, about 10 minutes.

3. Add all remaining ingredients, bring to boil.

4.  Simmer uncovered until reduced and thickened, about 15 to 25 minutes.

5. Add more Jack Daniels if a stronger flavor is desired.

We sincerely believe here in giving full credit where credit is due and this is not my BBQ Sauce recipe and here is the link to the one I love and use:


Directions for the Pork Ribs:

1. Marinate the 5 lbs. of Pork Ribs in the Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce for 24 hours in the refrigerator.

2. Remove the Pork Ribs from the refrigerator and place them in a baking pan along with all the Marinating BBQ Sauce and place in a 350 degree (F) preheated oven.

3. Bake them for at least 2 hours basting them every 20-30 minutes with the BBQ Sauce in the baking pan. I baste them throughout the cooking process because I just love flavors infused anyway and every single way I can get it in what I am making and this also helps keep the meat nice and moist.

4. At the 2 hour mark check to see if the Pork Ribs are fully cooked and if they aren’t bake for additional 15 minute increments until they are done to your satisfaction or take them out of the oven and finish them off on the BBQ grill which is what we do. Baste them every 5 minutes or so while they are on the grill and when the sear marks are showing on both sides they are done to perfection.  (I turned them over at the 10 minute mark on the grill).

5. Remove the Pork Ribs from the heat and allow them to sit for at least 5 minutes so that the meat juices have time to settle before you start slicing the meat.
