View Full Version : Country style ribs

03-13-2015, 09:54 PM
Been years since I cooked up a batch of these, so I thought I'd give them a try tomorrow. I find myself in a bit of a dilemma - should I do them h N f, or low and slow? Your opinions, please.

275 and they take more than a hour.

I need to do more, its been awhile.

I cook at 325 but it still takes over an hour but that's in the mini with the grate totally packed.

just cook at 700 and see what happens

I like grilling them on my kettle on high heat and get that flame kissed char on the edges.

I cook at 300 - 350, but they still take over an hour.

We enjoy them very much here.
I cook them at 250 for about 3 hours. Until fork tender.
They are great with 2 coats of your favorite bbq sauce the last hour of smoking.

I guess I'll have to give these another try. I smoked some a long time ago and they were tender but they just didn't blow us away. I prefer to braise them or cook them in the crock pot :shock: with sour kraut.

Ribs must have Bones to be ribs

I usually make sweet and sour country ribs on my Weber, I give them a good sear on both sides, coat them with sauce and then finish them in indirect heat until they hit 140 and then pull em'.:-D

Ribs must have Bones to be ribsYeah, I believe that country ribs are from a pork butt that's been run through a band saw if I'm not mistaken.:-D

agreed.... But credit to the first butcher to merchandise and name the cut to increase the marketability!

Butt Chops!

I'm with bbqbull, I like to cook them with lower heat (250ish) until fork tender.

After a coupla hours on the Butt Ugly Drum Smoker, I got a batch of Country-style ribs. With some smoke left, I also decided to whip up a bunch of ABTs. Dinner cain't come soon enough!

Finally done. Dinner is in the process of being demolished. Delish!

Everything looks good. I will have to pick some up tomorrow.

I do both, even on the same cook. Smoke for a couple hours, then hit em hotter, sauce and get a little char.

That plate looks awesome. Complimenti.

For those cut from the loin, I grill over direct heat and sauce, but I usually put them in a crockpot with sauerkraut, onions, and unsweetened apple sauce. Those cut from the shoulder I cook at 250 deg for at least 4 hours.
