Country Style Ribs


Greg in Utah

I don’t stumble across these all that often. It’s a great cut of meat. Looks to be a shoulder that met a band saw.

Same tasty piggy 🐷 as a pork butt or pork steak, This pic is after the first hour and a spritz of apple juice + apple cider vinegar. Rub is just me throwing the basics on it, SPOG and paprika.

I’m doing these in my newest kettle with a slow and sear. It’s been solid at 245 - 255 without any tweaking,

More later.

Reminds me to pull a pack out of the freezer.;)
Pretty common around here, you either get em shoulder cut or loin cut.
Yours look like the first, loin cut you treat like a thick pork chop.
You gonna wrap and braise them with sauce or just go neked?

Any time butts are on sale country style ribs are on sale here. They turn out very well regardless of how you cook them.

Funny story - When I had my tonsils taken out as a kid they fed us these ribs in the hospital. I liked them .

How many people look back fondly at hospital food?

how long was your cook time for them? I love country ribs but the wife wont eat them. Says they are too fatty.
