"Country Style Ribs"

I've been reading the archives about "country style" ribs. However, the more I read the more confused I got. Want to do some country style ribs tomorrow and package reads "Country Style Ribs (Bone in)". From my reading this leads me to believe that these are from shoulder cut and should be cooked around 225 to 250 for about 4-5 hrs. Internal temp around 160. Is this correct or do they need to be fast cooked. Thanks for the help.

    <p />MikeM,[p]There are two cuts that can be labeled "country ribs". Shoulder ribs are pictured above. Below are loin ribs. which do yours resemble?[p]~thirdeye~[p]f33fb1fe.jpg[p]b22f1088.jpg

  • thirdeye,[p]They kind of look like the second picture. They don't have the "y" bone in them. They don't have that pork steak look to them.

    MikeM,[p]Here is a picture that fishlessman sent me of a loin rib chop. In addition to the rib bone, this one has the full loin also. [p]b5214994.jpg[p]Because they are leaner than "shoulder" ribs, the "loin" country ribs are cooked at higher temps like 350° until the internal temp is 145°.

    Ya know I had the same problem a week or so ago. After reading all the posts I didn't know what kind of ribs I had other than pork?? Well, I just put them on direct with some Dizzy Pig rubbed in a couple of hours earlier (can't even remeember which one). Cooked them at about 250 for ~4 hours (I think) internal temp 150. Covered them with tin foil and let them rest for 10 min (temp when up to 160). And MAN, were they good!! I really think it is hard to screw them up. And with spare ribs being $3.00+ /lb and baby backs being even more!! Country ribs ~$2.00/lb I think they are the best bang for your buck with a lot of meat. They are my favorites. Heat them, eat them and enjoy.
