Blitz jerk seasoning ingredients together to make a coarse paste.

Marinate the ribs with 1 cup of the jerk rub and leave for 4 hours or preferably overnight.

Preheat oven to 150 degrees and place ribs in a deep tray covered with foil and cook for 2 hours.

Allow ribs to cool down completely, allowing for a clean cut into single pieces. Heat grill or barbecue
and grill on both sides for 3 to 4 minutes, and baste with Jerk BBQ sauce during grilling.

Stack ribs per serve like Jenga pieces. Serve with fresh lime.


  • Jerk seasoning makes three cups, and keeps well for four weeks.
