    Sundown,[p]"It's hard to make a silk purse from a sow's ear", to quote a quote. Country ribs are hard to make great - IMHO. They are from the shoulder and so are more like pulled pork butt than a real rib. Longer and slower cooks do better and a mop or BBQ glaze is needed to keep them drying out too much - since they are individually cut up. Cook long and slow then bump it up to 325-350 and burn on some sauce. [p]Tim

    The recipe I posted a ways back has the method I use to cook them. 300-325 indirect for a couple/few hours, then diirect with the sauce to finish. They don't need as long as spare ribs. Just enough to cook soild through and some crust on the outside. The really long cooks seem to dry them out.[p]Use whatever rub hits your fancy. The sauce is important the last 30-60 minutes to caramalize and hopefully hold any moisture in the meat. Will be mor firm than a rib or butt, but they are really good.[p]I am assuiming you have the fatty kind of country ribs. If it is the lean "chop" type, a faster hotter cook works best.[p]Hope that helps a tad. Enjoy!!
