Grilled Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs

Grilled Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs from 101 Cooking For Two
KISS is good. Great taste with minimal work. How do you grill these things? This is one of those things that you can't seem to find.

What I wanted?  
First: To cook these fast enough to eat at a reasonable time after getting home from work. A weeknight recipe.  
Next: To grill entirely and not do multiple steps.  
Lastly: Keep it moist.  

Results: 9.0 Great taste and the drying was minimal.  

Notes: A brining would fix the minimal moisture issue and add taste depending on the brine. But this would add hours and take it out of the weeknight recipe class. A suggested brine would be 2 T table salt 1T sugar and 2 cups of water for 1-4 hours. Other spices like allspice, garlic, pepper etc can be added. Google is your friend again. I will be continuing to do these ribs by this method and brine if it fits my time schedule.    

My Favorite Rub and Sauce For This Cut
 8:3:1:1 Rub
 My Memphis  BBQ Sauce - You must try this 
Other Options
Marlowe's Memphis Rub Recipezaar # 16732 - Gates & Son's KC BBQ Rub
Recipezaar # 16745 Gates & Son's KC BBQ Sauce Gates from Kansas City Link  

Notes on rub and sauce.  I now make all my own sauce and rubs. I did use only Gates of Kansas City sauce and rubs. I enjoyed them for 35 years and  mail order them by the case and give a lot away.  You should use whatever rub or sauce you enjoy. Bull's-Eye Original Barbecue Sauce is recommended by CI. You can Google or buy what your local market has in stock or use mine above.

Note #2: updated May 10, 2012 to reflect my current technique.

Clean and oil grill grates.
Preheat grill on high both burners. 
Trim ribs if excessive fat.  Rinse under running water and pat dry.
Deepen the cuts that are already in the ribs to about 75% through.
Coat both sides of ribs with rub. Be sure to get in the cuts. Rub in and let rest for 10 minutes while preheating grill on high.

Grill both sides for approx. 4 minutes per side to seal. Then decrease temp to medium and grill for until internal temp of 150. Flipping about every 5-6 minutes. Total cooking time 25 minutes for me.
Then coat with sauce on both sides and grill until brown. 2-4 more minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.

Thank you for the great instructions on how to cook these. They came out fabulous with your rub and barbecue sauce recipe. At a birthday bbq, where we served grilled chicken, burgers, hot dogs and these ribs, the ribs were the star of the show. Everyone was slathering the chicken and ribs with extra homemade sauce and raving over it. For the rub, I halved the sugar for the chicken, then added more sugar before rubbing the ribs. If this cut of pork didn't work for me this time, I promised myself I would never attempt them again. You proved to me that they are doable on the grill!
