Grilled Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs with Carolina Rub

I'm working my way across the south by recipes and quite enjoy my southern tour; thank you very much. I have done KC, Memphis, Alabama and now the Carolina's.

But today's is not quite up to the others. While the others hold up to eating without a sauce this just isn't quite there. Maybe it really needs that famous vinegar based BBQ sauce but it should not demand it.

The recipe came for About.com but I found the same recipe on many other sites also. So it is a standard "Carolina" recipe. I didn't really modify a thing (strange for me).

Check my BBQ sauce and rubs for other options.

Rating:

Spicy but has less taste than the other rubs. I'm rating the rub only. I cooked the ribs per my usual and they are a strong 9.

Notes: When combined with Gate's KC BBQ sauce, it was really quite a nice combo. This may just be my taste but that's life, you can't love everything.

Tools: Clean gas grill

Ingredients: 
1 slab country style boneless pork ribs
Rub:
1 T salt
1 T sugar
1 T brown sugar
1 T ground cumin
1 T chili powder
1 T black pepper
1/2 T cayenne pepper
2 T paprika

Instructions:
1) Preheat grill on high. Clean and oil.
2) Mix rub in small bowl.
3) Trim ribs of any fat cap and cut the preexisting cross cuts about 3/4 of the way through.
4) Rub both sides and groves with rub.
5) Decrease temp to medium and grill for until internal temp of 160. Flipping about every 5-6 minutes. Total cooking time 25 minutes for me.

Man you got to use mustard that what the real Carolina is all about (South Carolina), not that vinegar bs.

That may be why I rated it low. It is a recipe that is common out there. As for the mustard... I'm not a "mustard person" so I would have probably not done the recipe with the mustard. For those looking for Carolina (South), like Hall says look for mustard base. A rub should make the meal so a sauce is an add on, not a cover up.

Maybe it's those North Carolina people that like the vinegar.
