Chef Carl’s BBQ Spareribs

Long summer nights and weekends around the BBQ with family and friends are upon us! A popular barbecue recipe around the Portola Hotel is Chef Carl’s BBQ Spareribs. Pair these ribs with homemade cornbread, coleslaw, and Peter B’s Brewpub’s award-winning craft beer, and you have yourself the combination for a perfect BBQ. Whether cooking for one or your fellow housemates, there is no better time than now to savor a home cooked meal, prepared al fresco.

Our very own Chef Carl shared his original recipe for Barbecued Spareribs – cooked LOW and SLOW, last year for Memorial Day. Now is the perfect time to break out the barbecue and start channeling all those summer feels with this delicious recipe.
