Anybody tried Q'n some of these? They look like they are cut from a pork butt. Just wondering how long they might take.

When I smoke country style ribs I treat them like spares and use the 3-2-1 method. Since they are individual cuts of meat and have more surface area I use the rub sparingly so not to over power the meat. And to keep them from getting too smoky & to conserve shelf save (smoker's usually loaded) I stand all the ribs up and placed them in contact with each other.

I was looking at some of these at the butcher today, and as soon as the snow melts I'm going to give some a try.

When I got home last evening we had leftover country style ribs for dinner that had been vacuum sealed and frozen. Brought 2-1/2 ribs with me for lunch too :wink: Mmmmmm, ribs!

Maybe I'll have to watch what I say, the wife may be reading our posts :lol:

Hmmm, all I ever do with country style ribs is to boil 'em up with sauerkraut and serve 'em up with mashed potatoes....!

Country ribs are cut from the Boston Butt portion of the pork shoulder.

Bob is correct, but be careful, sometimes they're cut from the loin area to produce more leaner cuts (for health conscious people). The loin cut does not work well for low and slow cooking (they'll be very dry), however, they're perfect for grilling over direct heat. Most stores will label where the cut was taken from i.e. Loin or shoulder .
