Everyone likes traditional pork ribs and beef ribs but what if money is tight or simply want a quick smoke? I highly recommend you try these country-style pork ribs. These ribs aren’t actually ribs but are typically cut from a large pork shoulder.
While I love this cut of meat for pulled pork, this is definitely a BBQ fan favorite as these country-style ribs are not only smoked but beer-braised as well!
Ingredients For Preparing Pork Country Style Ribs
This recipe consists of two parts. The first is a quick smoke to bring the pork ribs to temperature and then a quick braise to make the ribs tender and delicious. Let’s cover what you’ll need to make this smoke possible.
- One package of country-style pork ribs ~ 3lbs.
- Two tablespoons of yellow mustard
- three-four tablespoons of your favorite BBQ rub (I used Grill mates Sweet + Smokey)
- One can of beer
- 1/4 stick of salted butter
- 1/2 cup of your favorite bbq sauce (I used sweet baby rays)
- Turn your smoker on and bring it to 250 degrees.
- Remove your country-style pork ribs from the package and pat dry.
- Rub each of the ribs with yellow mustard.
- Liberally apply the bbq rub on each rib section
- Place country ribs directly on the smoker until they reach 155 degrees. This should take about 1-hour.
- Remove the country ribs and follow the braising directions (below).
- Once the braise is complete – return country ribs back to the smoker. Apply BBQ sauce directly to the country ribs and smoke at 300 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
- After smoking the country ribs until 155 degrees, remove and place in braising pan.
- Add 3/4 of a can of beer to the bottom of the pan.
- Add a pad of butter to each individual country rib.
- Cover the braising pan and place it back on the smoker.
- Increase smoker to 300 degrees.
- Allow braising for one hour.
