Fire up the grill
MainsWild Rose Country Ribs
Nothing says Albertan BBQ more than these delicious ribs. These sweet and savoury ribs are mouth watering and sure to please!
SidesBarbecued Bannock Biscuits
Bannock, a staple of Indigenous cuisine, is often cooked over an open fire. This recipe lets you make fluffy bannock-style biscuits in a cast iron skillet on your barbeque. The brick placed between the pan and the grill gives the biscuits some distance from the heat and keeps them from overbrowning.
MainsCedar Planked Salmon
Cedar planking is one of the most popular ways to grill salmon for good reason. The plank keeps the salmon off the direct heat of the barbecue while also lending a deliciously smoky flavour. Serve the salmon right on the plank for an impressive presentation, but be sure to discard it after you’re done eating, as they can only be used once.
SidesSmoky Baked Beans
These spicy-sweet baked beans get their smoky flavour from canned chipotle peppers, which are smoke-dried jalapenos. Serve them as a side dish at your next barbecue.
Make your burgers special occasion-worthy by packing the patties with three kinds of meat: beef, bison and pork. We season these juicy barbecued burgers with Our Signature Steak Spice.
MainsBeef and Bison Kebabs
Do you prefer beef or bison? Get a taste of both with these grilled skewers. Both meats are marinated in a sweet and spicy sauce for extra flavour.

MainsMaple Mustard Salmon
Maple works so wonderfully with salmon and a touch of Dijon mustard. This delicious dish cooks up quickly on the barbecue in a foil packet.
