Grilled Country-Style Ribs are mouthwatering delicious!
I normally make country-style ribs in the crockpot. The other day, however, I was at the store and saw what they cost. They were a lot less than baby back ribs or spare ribs. Who doesn’t like to save a buck?!
It was a no-brainer what I was going to do with them next. You’re going to LOVE this recipe!
This is an easy dinner recipe, my friends. You can also entertain with them and not break the bank when you want to have your friends over. To make this recipe, you need a good spice rub.
(Note: If you don’t want to create your own rub, THIS is a good one).
Rub the spice on the ribs and leave them overnight in the fridge, or minimum 1 hour. You want the meat to absorb the spices.
From here, add them to a hot grill. Don’t go anywhere. Keep your tongs and “beverage” close. They need attention, and you don’t want your Grilled Country-Style Ribs to be dry. I recommend 10-15 minutes on each side, depending on the size of your ribs.
We’re talking about pork here. To be safe, use a Cheap Cooking Thermometer. When it reads 145 degrees F, you’re good to go. If they read anything less, put them back on the grill until they do. They might need an extra turn.
That is, an extra 10-15 minutes on the grill. It all depends on the thickness of your ribs. Size does matter. 😉
Serve with extra of BBQ sauce for people to add as they please. SO good!
Or, you can baste them on the grill during the last turn. This recipe is easy, delicious, and cheap. Don’t you just love that combination!
For dessert, make a yummy Frozen Lemonade Pie.
Here’s a sneaky chef trick: If your ribs turn out dry, baste them with BBQ sauce right before serving. No one will know the difference.
These Grilled Country-Style Ribs go great with this Cucumber Salad. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up 4 months. Hope you enjoy!

My husband loves bbq ribs and if he can eat it everyday, he would. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I’d love to make this for him next week.

These look great, I’ll definitely try this out this summer. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks! Happy grilling. 🙂
This recipe looks delicious! I always go with the country style pork ribs over the baby back or beef ribs. Not only are they cheaper, but the country style has so much more meet on them! The beef ribs are too much work for just a tiny bit of meat.
Yes! That’s a great point. There’s actually meat on country-style ribs.
