Something i have found to be on easier side and cheap to boot are Country style ribs. which are just pork butt cut into strips. i can get bone in or bone out CSR about 1.49-1.69/# sometimes even 1.29/# if i buy in bulk at Sam's Club. They are very forgiving and if you do them right they can be good meat candy!
Meat Candy RIblets:
De-bone and cut into 1.5 inch pieces.
Coat in some cheap yellow mustard in an aluminum foil pan.
Sprinkle on your favorite rib rub or pork rub. ( try Butcher BBQ for some good rubs or Jeff's Rub to support the message boards)
let sit in the refrigerator over night with the rub.
then smoke at 275 degrees for 3-4 hours or until the meat about 185 degree IT ( your time and temps could vary)*
for the last 30 minutes of cooking put on your favorite sweet BBQ sauce with a brush or mop ( i use a vertical mop) and lower your temps to 225 to keep from burning the sauce. (if you scorch the sauce they will come out dark but still taste good)
For wood flavor i like apple or Cherry on pork or even a hickory mix with apple or cherry.
Serve with long tooth picks or longer bamboo skewers as an app or put on bread or rice for a meal
*Don't worry CSR riblets are very forgiving if you cooking them a little more they just get softer
