Country Style Ribs (SV & Grill) Best Ever!

These were easily the Best CSRs We’ve ever had !!
I started with 3.75 lbs of CSRs @ $1.49 per pound. (Great Price!)
Put them in 3 Double sealed Vac Packs with some Pork Rub.
Then into my Sous Vide Supreme @ 140° for 24 hours.
Then removed them, dried them off, and put them on my Hot Weber Q.
I flipped them all over at least 4 times, adding some "Thin" BBQ sauce with each flip.
Then into the kitchen to catch up with some Steak Fries & Sugar Snap Peas.


These CSRs beat all previous ones I have made, whether SV, Grill, Smoker, or Crock Pot.
I doubt if they could possibly be better, however I believe I will try 21 hours next time, instead of 24, just to see.


Simply Awesome!!

Thanks for stopping in,

Bear

Thank You Griz!!

I normally Smoked them like regular Ribs, without using a Therm, But I know they only got up to about 170°--180°, and they were still pretty Dry.

So I never took them all the way to 203°.

When I had to quit carving, Mrs Bear said I should keep the ones we have now and not sell any more.

One like you're talking about would have been between $250 and $350 when I was carving & selling them.

Sous vide pork .. at what temp does that fat start to render? It's like 135 I think. Is their a bunch of fat when you open the plastic bags?

I've never thought of using the sous vide technique on CSR, but will definitely give it a go
Thank You Idaho!!

I've done it a couple times, but this was definitely the best, and will be going in my Step by Step List !!

And Thanks for the Points.

Getting to the thing I was wondering about.. [emoji]129300[/emoji]
Pork fat renders at about 135° .. so these bags of pork have that liquid fat in them after hours of being in that hot water right? Do you have any fat left in the meat to cook on the grill when you pat them dry? Seems as though 12 hours would be enough to totally render fat out. Collagen or connective tissue may take a while hey?

I can tell you that there was still fat in them when I grilled them. I only grilled long enough to get them bubbly on the outside & to get some Grill Marks.

And there is always a lot of liquid left in the bags, so I put some in a cup to separate the Fat, like I do when I smoke a Butt, Chucky, etc, and the next day there was next to no fat on top of the liquid in the cup.

Yup---I saw that.

I think when I did CSRs in my smoker, they got dry because I use lower temps to get more time & more smoke on them.

Then they take too long to get to higher internal Temps.

You must use a higher Smoker Temp, so yours get to 203° before they get a chance to Dry out.

Great job there Bear. Don't have one them SV's yet I'll just have to stop by for a taste.

Today Rick Bayless (I think is his name), he was doing a Mexican taco that uses pork simmered in rendered pork fat for hours. He did his in a crock pot using lard he bought at a Mexican store and melted in the microwave to pour on the pork shoulder chunks in the bottom of the crock pot. It cooked in there on high for 3 or 4 hours to get the taco meat.

It's a show on Public tv ..

Thank You Al !!

I love this SV Supreme!!!

I'm trying to get a bunch of problem meats nailed down, and I want to put the huge successes in my Step by Step Index.

Then others can use proven Step by Steps, and so can I, especially when it's too darn cold out for this old Bear to venture outside for long smokes.

Like my other Step by Steps, only the Good ones will make it into my Step by Step Index, and if I get a better one, I'll replace the older one with it.

And Thanks for the Points, Al !!
