I have never BB-Q ribs before. I have just read Ray's question and your responses. My question is. Are country ribs what I should choose if I want a real meaty ribs? The nice fatty ones right? Thanks. Fireball

    the walrus, Country ribs are meaty and can be great. However, most of the time it is a reach to call them ribs - they are (I know someone will correct me if I'm wrong) slices of Boston Butt -they come in two variety - with and without bones. While I like country ribs (and I have done pork spare ribs and beef ribs) my favorites are still pork baby backs.[p]The best way to find the best for you are to make them all - probably at different times unless you are really hungry - lots of varieties of each and then decide.[p]It's a tough job, but only you can do it - Life is GOOD!

    the walrus,
    Gfw is right on. Choose spare ribs if you want nice thick meaty ribs. They like a longer cook than babybacks, but IMO are as good as babybacks if cooked correctly.[p]Country ribs are in a whole different league, as Gfw explained, and though shaped like a rib, is not a rib at all. The meat has a different texture altogether.[p]If God didn't want us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them out of meat.
