I have 9 pounds of 98 cents per special need to cook by tomorrow
"Country Style Pork Shoulder Ribs bone in" which are big strips of meat not following any obvious planes with an odd bone in the middle of each. They are about 2" wide by two inches tall by 6-10 inches long
Any thoughts on cooking, oh wise ones?
Oh by the way, I've been too busy to keep up with the list (Vic had his knee replaced...) but I can't not say something about the Foodsaver. I have a professional II which I love. It was pricey--over $300 list but I think but I got a deal, however it was worth every penny in any case. A year later things are still fresh and I have saved at least the cost in food which would have been thrown out. It should be a requirement for eggers to own one (assuming they make more food than they eat, which may be an erroneous assumption.) I have a little Compact II from my sister which does not seal bags easily and it sits on my counter for sealing things in jars: coffee beans, tomato sauce, snack food,whatever, as well as left over wine with the bottle stopper attachment. I haven't tried it on beer to see how well it holds the head, but then there never seems to be any beer left over.
The company has been very helpful and responsive as well...

    See and check out the recipe section for country ribs. I think about 4.5 hours to 5.0 hours 225 or so should do it. You can put your favorite rub on them, sauce them at the end if you like. But low and slow is the way to go.

    • 3 Clove Garlic • 1 Tbs Rice Vinegar (or other vinegar)

    • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds • 1 Cup Ginger Mahogany Ribs Finishing Sauce/See recipe
    • 1 Tbs Onion Powder • 2 Slabs Spare Ribs
    • ¼ tsp Cinnamon

    • With Mortar/Pestal pound the ginger, garlic, and kosher salt into a paste. Add mustard seeds and peppercorns and pound until worked into paste. Stir in remaining ingredients except finishing sauce. Pour over ribs in a ziplock bag, and massage all over meat. Marinate overnight if possible, or a few hours at room temp.

    I usually marinade for a few hrs. in:
    1/4 cup Dijon mustard
    2 Tbs red-wine vinegar
    1/2 cup olive oil
    2 Tbs dried summer savory, crumbled, or 3 tablespoons fresh summer savory, chopped fine
    2 Tbs water
    (Batch size varies with number of ribs.[p]I just grill them direct about 5-7 minutes per side. They turn out excellent. Or, if you prefer you can smoke them at a lower temp, however, I can't tell that much difference.
