    Sliced pork back ribs

    I got a great deal on sliced pork back ribs and have been searching for how to smoke them. I was wondering if you guys have ever done these. I am guessing that I would smoke them similar to a whole rack with a little less time. And, that cup cake is up for grabs :-) I use a Kamado Joe.

    In my part of the world, these cuts would be called pork steak or "country ribs". They are cut from the area where the ribs end and the shoulder starts. You can get "country ribs" that are more like pork chops (pork loin), ones that are more like pork shoulder, and some that are a mix of both.

    Yours look to be more like boneless pork shoulder cuts - they have a darker color and more marbling -- so I'd cook them fairly slowly on moderate to low heat. I don't normally cook even the shoulder-type cuts for hours like ribs. I usually grill them slowly -- maybe 1 to 1 1/2 hours. But cooking them like real ribs is certainly an option to try.

    The ones that look more like loin meat -- paler, more uniform -- need to be cooked more like pork chops to keep them from being dry as dust.

    There are lots of opinions about cooking various types of country ribs in other threads -- search for that name to get ideas.

      Exactly what the always astute IowaGirl said

    Thank you IowaGirl


      We ate these growing up in the ‘60s. They’re “country style ribs”. I still make them the way my mom used to. She would grill them, then simmer them in bbq sauce for about an hour. They come out fantastic, lots of crispy bits and very tender.


        They pretty much covered it. But at least the price was reduced for YOU!
        Now the cupcake, whoa that’s another matter. Some like to peel the wrapper, some like to eat it holding it in the wrapper from the top. Small bites make it last longer. 🕶

          😂 I thought the reduced for YOU was funny too - meat is getting so expensive I am always looking for bargains. Now the cup cake issue - I like to take the wrapper off them break the cc in half saving the top for last.

          Oooh, half bottom to top wise! Best fer last.

        I do what Mosca described. This recipe from BBQ Pit Boys is my favorite. I just watched this video for the first time in a while. I love how he tells you all the ingredient amounts yet never touches the measuring cup sitting on the table.

          That is EXACTLY how I do them, and how my mom did them 50 years ago!

      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
