Country Style Ribs

These country style ribs are meaty and tender. The fat melts into them as they cook, then beautifully crisps up under the broiler.

  • 3 lb. boneless pork shoulder ribs

Dry rub:

  • 2 teaspoons smoked salt (available on Amazon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Cut the ribs in half crosswise, and arrange them in a single layer in an ungreased 9 X 13-inch baking dish.
  • Mix together the dry rub ingredients, and sprinkle the rub on top of the ribs.
  • Cover tightly with heavy duty foil (or a double layer of regular foil), and bake until very tender, about 2 hours.
  • With a slotted spatula, remove the cooked ribs to a broiler-safe pan. Switch the oven to broil.
  • You can throw out the cooking liquids, but I like to strain them into a glass jar and refrigerate until the fat separates. I then remove the layer of fat, and I have a rich, tasty, mineral-rich broth that I can either warm up and drink, or use as a basis for sauces and gravies.
  • Broil the ribs in the middle of the oven until the fat is browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Allow to rest 5 minutes before serving.
