Why Our Ribs are a Must-Try at Hunter & Barrel

Hunter & Barrel stands out in the culinary landscape for its exceptional approach to ribs, a dish that embodies the essence of my restaurant. What sets our ribs apart is not just the taste but the meticulous cooking techniques and unwavering commitment to quality. We marinate our ribs in spice blends that bring a big flavour to every mouthful.

The cooking process further distinguishes our ribs. Slow-cooked using traditional methods that honour the hunter’s way, our ribs are then finished over an open coal grill, imparting a smoky, irresistible aroma and a caramelised exterior that locks in the succulence. This combination of slow cooking and grilling creates a perfect crust and juicy interior.

Quality is paramount at Hunter & Barrel. We source only the finest cuts of meat, locally raised, ensuring they meet our high standards for texture, flavour, and sustainability. This dedication to quality from farm to table ensures that every rib plate served is not just a meal, but an unparalleled culinary experience.

A Tour of Our Rib Selection

Choose from a half rack or full rack of beef ribs or pork ribs, slow-cooked for 8 hours and finished to perfection on our signature char-grill. Served with hearty chips or a crisp cabbage salad, they are just waiting for you to try.

Signature Rib Dishes and Flavours

Our Bunter & Barrel signature rib basting is the reason you want to sample some of our famous backs of ribs.

We can’t tell you what goes into our secret baste, but it delivers a perfect harmony of sweet and sour, with hits of rich umami flavour that makes you close your eyes and sigh with culinary satisfaction.

Perfect Side Dishes to Complement Our Ribs

We recommend a side of chips or a mixed-leaf salad to accompany your mouth-watering ribs.

The mixed-leaf salad is a fresh palette cleanser that can help uplift each mouthful of ribs, so you can enjoy every moment.

The chips are a hearty, wintery accompaniment perfect for all meaty dishes, an old staple. While our chefs can bring innovation to any dish, sometimes traditions are still the best.

Our Commitment to Quality in Every Rib Dish

At Hunter & Barrel, the sourcing, selection, and preparation of our ribs underscore a deep commitment to quality and sustainable practices. We partner with local farms and suppliers who share our dedication to ethical farming and environmental stewardship, ensuring that each cut of meat not only meets our high standards for flavour and tenderness but also contributes to a sustainable food system.

The preparation of our ribs involves traditional techniques that enhance their natural flavours. Marinated in house-made rubs that meld perfectly with the meat’s essence, the ribs are then slow-cooked for 8 hours to achieve the perfect balance of tenderness and taste.

The Ultimate Ribs Dining Experience

For rib lovers, Hunter & Barrel offers an unparalleled ambience, a venue both rustic and refined, and an atmosphere that exudes warmth and conviviality. The rich aroma of slow-cooked ribs envelopes you and ushers you to your table. The decor marries rugged elegance with cosy comfort, featuring natural wood, soft lighting, and leather accents that invite diners to settle in for a memorable meal.

Pairing the right beverage with ribs at Hunter & Barrel enhances the dining experience, harmonizing flavours for an unforgettable culinary journey.

For the smoky richness of our ribs, we recommend robust red wines like a Shiraz from the Clare Valley, or Malbec from Langhorne Creek, whose bold fruitiness and subtle spice complement the meat’s deep flavours.

Beer lovers will appreciate a dark ale or porter, offering a smoky, malty contrast that enhances the ribs’ succulence.

For a refreshing twist, try a classic bourbon cocktail, such as an Old Fashioned, whose caramel and vanilla notes marry beautifully with the ribs’ charred exterior and tender interior.
