I had a hankering for something saucy BBQ yesterday. When I spied these country style pork strips at the market, good old memories came back to me. I knew these meaty beasts were my ticket to satisfaction.

This cookout was one of them low and slows, and I do mean low and slow-- all day at 225 degrees. 250 only when I reached the foiling phase. I got my heat from the ground chipotle powder I rubbed onto them prior to cookin'. Mopped them a few times with cider vinegar during the smoke, with hickory. Here they go--

At this point it was time to foil for an hour, followed by a generous saucing of KC Masterpiece. Plated them up with good ole mac & cheese, green beans, and BBQ tater chips for that extra punch. I was one happy camper. :D

Here is a cross sectional analysis. Now if I could only get dino-spares this meaty! :lol:

No problem, as long as you have room to raise your own beef. :wink:

The CSRs turned out nice. Did you take them all the way to 195 and beyond?

My kinda meal, bc! I actually cooked some CSR up Monday night, but I cooked mine much quicker. Indirect in a 375 degree pit for about 30 min, then foil and place over the edge of the coals for about another 25 min. They came out DEE-licious! :D

Thank you, Gents :D

Griffin-- I wound up paying $1.99/lb, which is more than they used to cost around here.

Brad-- "to infinity and beyond!" Actually, I foiled these at around 170 for one hour without anymore temp checks. I'm sure they got up in that range though as they were hot as the devil when I unwrapped 'em, and tender enough.

Tex-- Yes, there certainly is more than one way to skin a fish. :D

Excellent plate up. I've been able to find meaty beef ribs--it's just on very rare occasions.
