Smoked Country Ribs?

Hello everyone,

We were planning on smoking ribs today. Yesterday, my wife picked up country ribs (singles) instead of baby backs. Has anyone tried smoking the country ribs? Should I just go get some baby backs?




  • Smoke those babies!!  They are a little more trouble.  Next time get St. Louis style cut.  Cooked right, I like them better then BB!
  • Love smoked country ribs!  Take longer, but they taste great.  I spritz with apple juice every 45 minutes to keep moist and build up a glaze that mixes well with a basic pork rib rub.
    Love smoking chicken...but they are hard to keep lit ;-) Small Egg / Weber OTG 22" / CharGriller Trio / Masterbuilt 30" Electric

    For future reference, "country ribs" are usually slices of pork butt. Not ribs at all. I think they are harder to make tender than spares. I prefer to cut out the tough stuff, and use the pieces for kabobs.
