Default a dumb question

I know this is a dumb question but i have a few rubs i want to test out BUT i dont want to shell out the money for some ribs that are 4$ a pound. I can get country style ribs for .88$ per pound. I am curious if a rub will taste different on one cut of pork than it will on another. Lets say BB's vs country style ribs or even pork chops. I just want to test the rubs out to see if i like. Its cheaper to give the dog country style ribs than it is BB's if you mean what i know!!

Thanx

It's a meat to rub ratio kind of thing. The same rub on a pork butt has less flavor than the rub on some baby backs. But the difference between country style and baby backs shouldnt be that big of a difference. The meat to rub ratio is real similar.

especially too considering that country ribs come from the butt.

Love the country ribs. Price may have a lot to do with it. I did find out this weekend that Mesquite wood does not go well with country ribs. I prefer fruit woods but could not find any. Had to mail order. Dogs still not getting my ribs, will put in stew or something to try and cover the smoke flavor.

Mesquite wood flavor is a lil to strong for me. Even apple is strong for me. Use the ribs to make a 3 bean chili. Add the ribs to a bag of about a cup or so mixe of gingerale and rootbeer. Then when you brown it and thicken up the sugars in the marinate, add the rest of your chilie stuff and then add a hershy kiss or two at the end for some added flavor

Thanks for the tip on the gingerale and rootbeer. I was between chilli or stew. Was going to try a stew with tomatoe sauce, onions, carots, potatoes and garlic. I have BBQ sauce on the ribs as well which was why I am thinking tomatoe based. Was hoping all that would kill most of the smoke flavor. I think the mesquite is going in the firepit.

Mesquite makes awesome lump though.When it is in lump form, it does not give off that nasty smoke flavor. Not nasty, just a flavor i dont prefere
