Product Review: Jack Stack Barbecue ~ Pork Spare Ribs & Cheesy Corn Bake

If you love great tasting gourmet food, you are going to love the company I am going to introduce you to today called Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue! I had never heard of this company until my husband found them online as he was looking for some new barbecue sauce for us to try out since grilling season is fast approaching here in Pennsylvania. Now that winter is almost over, we look forward to taking our gas grill out of storage and grilling up some great tasting food!

At Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue you will find delicious Kansas City BBQ at it's best! They have Prime Beef Ribs, Gourmet Lamb Ribs, Pork Spare Ribs, Tenderloin & Half Slab Ribs, Burnt Ends, Brisket, Sausage, Poultry, Sauces and Rubs! If you love good food that is easy to prepare at home...you have got to check out all of the selections that Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue has to offer. I am amazed at their wide variety of products that they have to offer. Your mouth just waters viewing the photo's on their web site!

Shipping: All of my goodies were shipped in a large styrofoam cooler and packed on dry ice. It took 1 1/2 days to arrive to me and everything was frozen solid! Once your goodies arrive, you can place them into your freezer or thaw in your refrigerator. I was really impressed at how well they were packaged and that they were still frozen solid.

Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue sent me The Freight House package to review. This package contains:

Pork Spare Ribs (one full slab)
Beef Burnt Ends (1 lb.)
Hickory Pit Beans (16 oz.)
Cheesy Corn Bake (16 oz.)
KC Original BBQ Sauce (12 oz.)
extra cost ~ add on selection ~ Pork Burnt Ends (1 lb)

Since I received such a large package of gourmet foods to try out for all of you, I am breaking down my review into 3 different postings.

My Review: For this review we made their pork spare ribs and their cheesy corn bake and both items are fully cooked so you just have to reheat them. I decided to make pulled bbq pork sandwiches for dinner so I placed the slab of ribs into my slow cooker and set the temperature to low. I did add just a little bit of water as I wanted them to slow cook off the bone. About 2 hours later, I spooned out the bones and poured in 1/2 a bottle of their KC Original BBQ Sauce and left them slow cook for another 30 minutes. Once done I served our pork bbq on fresh rolls I purchased at the bakery. For the Cheesy Corn Bake I simply reheated that in my microwave oven according to the package directions. Regarding the ribs....there was absolutely no fat any where on these ribs! There was a lot more meat than bone which to me...is very impressive! The meat had a wonderful moist grilled seasoned taste to it and once we added their bbq sauce to the pork meat...it was absolutely delicious! I had 3 adults and 1 child over for dinner and everyone just raved about this meat! The Cheesy Corn Bake reminds me of creamy corn pudding but better! This was cheesy, creamy and had bits of pork in it which added a fabulous smokey like flavor to it. I sure do wish I had that recipe as it was a hit with my dinner guests!

Overall Impression: This is part 2 of my review for this company and seriously...I can't find anything negative to say! The BBQ Pork Spare Ribs and the Cheesy Corn Bake were huge hits with our dinner guests and they couldn't believe that this food came already cooked from the South. I of course...the good hostess that I am, told them all where they can purchase this delicious food. Everything was fully cooked, moist, fresh and delicious! I know I will certainly be purchasing products from this company when I am entertaining guests this summer. I highly recommend that you check out Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue because in my personal opinion, they have the best fully-cooked spare ribs on the planet!
