I have grilled country style ribs many times before my wife and love them(I know the aren't really ribs) but I never see anything posted about smoking or grilling. Is this meat consider taboo in the BBQ world. Just wondering, I hope I have not caused myself to be banished as I plan this smoke some this weekend. As anyone smoked them before or are they not worth the trouble?

I will not ban you, I love them.

My favorite is to smoke them over mesquite and apple and spray them with apple juice throughout the smoke.

There is nothing wrong with country style ribs. We have posts all the time about them. The only problem I have with them is getting them tender before I dry them out. Foiling at the proper time is a must.

Let the smoke roll and be sure to tell us how they turn out. I, too, am interested in this.

Jts70, PLEASE pay no attention to the previous posts as they are WRONG!!! You WILL be banned from the site, banned from using your smoker for 1 yr, and banned from any alcohol............UNLESS, you send enough to feed 2 adults and 2 childern to western Kansas.(my house)

I'm sorry, I don't make the rules. I will expect them to be hot upon arrival. Consider this a warning.

If you follow these rules, I will cut you a deal on a nice bridge.

Ok, enough BS. Smoke anything you want, smoke EVERYTHING. Just show us some pics. This is not a site that discriminates, or I'd have been gone a LONG time ago!

Good luck this weekend. Love to hear how it goes and how you make them.

Peace, Out

I love the boneless Country Style Ribs. They are easy to come by and frequently on sale. Thats usualy what I buy to make my dry cured bacon from. Pork Bellys are hard to come by and have too much fat for the most part. The CSR is just pork butt, and is already cut to the right size to cure quickly, slices nicely into a fimilar shaped bacon strip, and it fits on my small slicer easily. I also grind them into sausage.
