These country style pork ribs can be seasoned in many different ways. We used a dry rub on the ribs made from pantry ingredients. If you prefer a hint of sweetness add in a tablespoon of brown sugar.

Recipe Tips:

  • Prepare Ribs – Before seasoning the ribs, we recommend allow the ribs to come to room temperature. This results in a juicy and tender ribs. Make sure to also seasoned the ribs thoroughly for the best flavor.
  • Two-Zone Cooking – We recommend sears the ribs over direct heat then over indirect heat. This allows the texture to get crispy and then over indirect heat slowly cooks the ribs through. You want to slow cook the ribs on both sides, so flip halfway through cooking time.
  • Meat Thermometer – To ensure your ribs are cooked through, we recommend using a meat thermometer for best results. They should reach an internal temperature of 135 degrees when finished cooking.
  • BBQ Sauce – For the best flavor, we love to baste the ribs with BBQ Sauce. Choose your favorite kind and add a thin layer on the pork ribs while on the grill. Allow the ribs to cook on both sides to caramelize the texture.
