Grilled Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs with Simple Rub

An update to my most popular post Grilled Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs. While the cooking of  the ribs is straight forward, many people are looking for a recipe that include a rub. See my previous post on 8:3:1:1 rub for more details but here is the complete recipe. Add my Memphis BBQ sauce and your good to go.


Rating:
 Almost a 5.

Notes: I did smoke this with wood chips. I leave a cast iron smoking box on my grill and just throw a cup of dry chips in. To me dry chips smoke a little faster and more intense but only last about 30 minutes. Just right for this sort of recipe.
If there is a "fat cap" remove it and any membrane under it. The membrane will prevent the fat from adding any flavor anyways.

My Memphis  BBQ Sauce - You must try this 
8:3:1:1 Rub-my current favorite for this cut


Tools: Clean gas grill setup to smoke if you want

Ingredients:
1 Country style boneless pork rib
1 cup wood chips if you're smoking this
1/4 cup rub (see recipe below)

Rub (cut in half to have less left over if you want)
8 T (1/2 cup) Brown sugar
3 T Kosher salt
1T chili powder
1 t black pepper
1 t onion powder
1 t garlic powder

Instructions:
1) Turn on grill and add wood chips if you're using smoke (optional). Preheat on high for 15 minutes then clean and oil.
2) While grill is heating, trim and cut ribs. Any solid fat can be removed. And be sure the "rib cuts" are about 50% through the ribs.
3) Mix rub ingredients. Save 1/4 cup for use and save remainder in airtight container for future use.
4) Rub both sides with 1/4 cup of 8:3:1:1 and rest at room temp while grill is heating.
5) Decrease temp on grill to medium and grill until internal temp of 160, turning every 8-10 minutes. Total time about 25 minutes.

Dan, those are some gorgeous looking country style ribs in the plated pic. When I still had my gasser, my cast iron smoker box was my best friend. Those things rock, don't they? And I'm with you on dry vs soaked chips.

I though I had lost the smoker box during a move but found it. I just leave it on the grill and use it as needed. I see no need to fuss with soaking if I doing my usual 30 minute or so recipes.
I really like this cut and it is ideal for the "Cooking For Two" thing

This is the best rub for pork ribs I have ever tried! Ribs came out tender and tasted fantastic. I am trying it tonight with a rack of ribs and can't wait to enjoy that flavor all over again! Thank you for such a great recipe!
