Bone-in southern style pork country ribs

Picked up 3 packages of Bone-in southern style pork country ribs the other day at the grocery store. I was looking for boneless ones or a small pork butt to make pulled pork tacos but the butcher was out and the other staffers said these would work. Said they're was only the couple bone pieces and that was it... Turns out they're chock full of bones, all kinds of chips and shards at that. Does anyone know what these types of "ribs" are good for?

    They aren't ribs. They are sliced butt/pork shoulder

    I grill direct for 45 minutes for a bit of bite or sv them and give them a quick sear

    They definitely are butt/shoulder. But how do you get those pieces of sharp bone out? Do you wash before eating or is there another trick?

    I always rinse since there it usually shards from the band saw. That bone at your pinkie should be he only bone in it.

    country ribs are cut from the loin if they really are country ribs

    Real country style ribs are not really suited for low and slow. They can be extremely tasty and be on your plate within an hour or less of hitting the grill.

  •  Country style ribs have the greatest yield for the least amount of work .  I literally just marinate them for 30 minutes in Dale's and grill them direct. They are awesome.  Love these things

    Good call @etherdome. They are perfect for any flavor profile from bbq to Korean.
