Review of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Pork Ribs

by StevenHelmer

My wife bought these for dinner a couple nights ago. Read to find out what I thought of them.

Product Description: Fully-cooked boneless pork ribs from the Jack Daniel's brand, seasoned with Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Liqueur BBQ Sauce. My wife purchased this product at one of our local grocery stores while she was out doing some other shopping. We ended up having it for dinner that night.


My wife was making a salad for some sort of school event a couple nights ago and had to stop at the grocery store for ingredients. While there, she decided to pick up something for dinner and ended up bringing home this product.

When I first saw this product, I wasn't really sure what to think of it. She didn't tell me what she spent on it. But, at least from what I've seen from similar products, I'm sure it wasn't a very affordable choice. And, because of that, I wasn't sure if it was going to be worth the money. We did, however, have this product last night and, for the most part at least, I found I was happy with the purchase.

As I've said in past reviews, I'm always willing to pay a bit more for something if I'm getting convenience in return. This product definitely fell in that category. I was able to follow the microwave instructions and the ribs were done in a matter of minutes. The only difficult part of the process was, after cooking them, cutting them out of the plastic cooking bag without making too much of a mess.

I also found I had no complaints about the taste. The ribs were very tender and the barbecue sauce gave them a tangy taste that had a bit of a kick but wasn't too spicy. In other words, they tasted exactly how I would expect good ribs to taste.

Probably my only complaint about this product was the quantity. They come in a fairly-large tray but the ribs don't even take up half of the tray. Fortunately, my wife and I were able to fill out our meal a bit by making some mashed potatoes to go with the ribs. But, even with that, I wouldn't recommend expecting much more than a meal for two (and even that was pushing it a bit). And, as much as I did enjoy the product, I'm not sure I enjoyed it enough to justify buying two (or more) trays to make enough for the whole family.

Final Opinion

If you're not feeding a lot of people and have something to serve with it, this is a good product if you're looking for something that is easy to make and has a good taste. Because of the quantity, however, that is the only circumstance in which I would recommend this.

My Grade: B

We had these ribs tonight. OMG I have a picture of the amount of pure fat contained. A bit of fat on all ribs are expected but this was a good 60% and the picture on the box is extremely miss-leading. I wish I would have weighed the contents before starting because it is very difficult to believe there was a pound of content but I'm not going to buy another batch to do that. Frankly there was not enough meat to even test the taste.
