Recipe: Memphis-stlye Country Ribs (pics)

Memphis-style Country Ribs

Tonight I had a serious hankerin' to cook some country-style ribs. After
driving all over town trying to find some bone-in non-injected (with "up to
a 12% solution" of who knows what) I finally had my friends at my local
Albertson's cut me some "ribs" from a whole Boston butt.



Once I procured the carnage, it was time to mix up some rub. I wanted to
try something a little different with these, so I decided to go
Memphis-style. Here is what I came up with.

Ingredients
6 large Country-style pork "ribs", bone-in
3 Tbsp Dark brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp Garlic salt
2 tsp Ground black pepper
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp New Mexico chili powder
1 tsp Ground cumin

Method
Combine all of the dry ingredients (everything except the pork) in a small
mixing bowl.

Blend the rub ingredients well.

Dust both sides of each "rib" liberally with the seasoning mixture and press
it into the meat.



Let the "ribs" sit covered at room temperature for one hour.

Prepare your grill for indirect cooking at medium heat (about 350º). I used
an approximate 70/30 mix of Kingsford Competition Briquets and Best Of The West oak lump charcoal, respectively.

Add a couple chunks of your favorite smoke wood to the fire (I used a little
cherry and hickory).

Cook the "ribs" indirect for one hour.

Flip them over and continue cooking indirect for another 30 minutes.

Put the "ribs" in an aluminum pan, cover with foil, and continue cooking
indirect for another hour.

Remove the pan from the grill and prepare for direct cooking over
medium-high heat (about 400º).

Remove the "ribs" from the pan and quickly grill them over direct heat for
about five minutes per side.

Put the "ribs" on a platter and let them rest for about ten minutes.

Serve, with barbecue sauce on the side, and enjoy!

Great looking CSRs. Sometimes cuts of pork loin will be labeled as CSRs too.

Looks good John. Does this kind of cook render most of the fat off the pork? My wife can't stand fatty cuts of meat.

Oh yeah, most of it renders off nicely. You can see it somewhat in the before and after pictures.
