Here is another Grate recipe from our friend Ken Fisher over at Date Night Doins. Be sure to check out his website for lots of other fine recipes. Ken cooked his ribs on a pellet grill but you can do it on a gas or charcoal grill. Also, feel free to use any BBQ rub and sauce you would like.

Sprinkle generously with Butcher BBQ Premium Rub. Preheat your Grill Grates to 400 degrees (205c). Place the country ribs on the hot grates for about 12 minutes per side with a quarter turn at 6 minutes. After 12 minutes sauce them with your Country Bob’s and flip them over for another 12 minutes with the quarter turn @ 6 minutes again. Sauce them now on this side. Be watching your internal temperature now and flip them over again to char the sauce on all sides. You are looking for an internal temp around 140 degrees (60c). Pull the meat and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. U.S.D.A. safe for pork is 145 degrees (62c). I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.


Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.
