Boneless Country Style Ribs & taters

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Took advantage of the weather and smoked some boneless country style ribs yesterday. Rubbed them with evoo and my rub. Smoked at 250 with apple for about 1 1/2 hrs. No prep or smoking pics, sorry, was distracted yesterday.

Threw some red skin potatoes on after rubbing them with evoo, kosher salt and cbp.

The kids loved the potatoes and were surprised by the smoke ring they had. We were disappointed in the ribs, they were more like a pork chop than ribs. I'd have to think twice before I buy another pack of them.

Those do look like they where closer to loin/chop area, The only Boneless CS I have seen around here are just butts cut into strips, and cook up just like a butt also. They look great reguardless, I know how it is when your expectations are one thing and you get another,

The ribs did come from the loin, more than likely from the loin end or center cut. Rib end would have been better because of more fat. "Country Style Ribs" can be cut from pork shoulder, pork butt, any part of the loin, the ham, the neck meat, even the lean end (by the shoulder) of the belly (sidepork) - it's a generic term indicating a thick cut strip of pork, not necessarily from any particular cut.
Being so lean, you could have infused more flavor and tenderness (FAT) into them with an acid-based marinade, esp. if done overnight, making up for the lack of fat that would have naturally broken up the meat fiber, the acid helping to tear down the connective tissue between cells. Something with wine, or vinegar, or citrus, etc. that would be complimented by slow cooking and a nice smoke added.
