  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 3 Pounds pounds boneless thick-cut country-style ribs
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 Cup ketchup
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 1/4 Cup worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon red pepper sauce


Preheat oven to 450 F degrees. Spread 1 tablespoon olive oil on bottom of a 9x9 baking dish. Place ribs over oil, separating them slightly.

Easy Country-Style Pork Ribs Recipe with BBQ

In this post I&rsquom sharing how to make Easy Country-Style Pork Ribs Recipe with BBQ and roasted garlic.

Hey Y&rsquoall! I don&rsquot know about you friends but for some reason warmer temperatures outside get me to thinking about barbecue. We sure love a good barbecue.

Whether you&rsquore firing up the grill, cooking over a campfire, or preparing a simple barbecue supper right in the oven&hellipit&rsquos all so delicious!

What to cook with ribs? How about a side of cool coleslaw, potato salad and baked beans and you&rsquove got yourself an amazing meal. Perhaps a few hush-puppies. Oh my& mouth is watering now!

What are country style ribs? Country style ribs are typically pork ribs that are meatier cut from an area near the pork shoulder. They&rsquore boneless, for the most part, and cook up melt in your mouth tender and delicious.

I almost always make country style ribs with barbecue sauce but some braise them and make a gravy sauce instead. My grandmother did the latter. Both are delicious.

Boneless Country Pork Ribs in the Oven

I have two methods for making tender fall apart country ribs &ndash the oven or in a foil pan over the campfire. Both work the same and a grill would also work nicely for the job.

Let&rsquos talk a minute about BBQ sauce. If you&rsquove been following for a while then you know that I enjoy making a lot of my own sauces. I enjoy using my old fashioned barbecue sauce or Carolina gold sauce for these ribs but I&rsquom also a fan of many store bought sauces too.

I used a sauce that I bought from a friend for these ribs, called Koss Sauce. This is not an ad, I&rsquom just sharing a wonderful BBQ sauce that I love. You&rsquoll love it too! A delicious blend of tangy heat and sweet flavor.

Southern Country Style Ribs

What will I need to make delicious country style ribs? You&rsquoll only need a few simple ingredients. Country style pork ribs, roasted garlic, Kosher salt, cracked black pepper and your preferred barbecue sauce. That&rsquos it!

Roasted garlic adds so much rich flavor to recipes! If you haven&rsquot tried roasting your own garlic then you should give it a go.

How do you make country style ribs tender? That&rsquos really easy! Let them cook in a lower temperature oven for a few hours. The flavorful fat in the ribs will melt and you&rsquoll end up with juicy tender ribs.

How long do you bake the country style ribs? Generally it will take three to four hours.

Easy Country-Style Pork Ribs Recipe with BBQ

Let&rsquos cook these Easy Country-Style Pork Ribs Recipe with BBQ y&rsquoall!

Preparing the Ribs for Cooking

Remove the ribs from the packaging. If you notice they are a little slimy, wipe them down with a paper towel. Cut off any extra meat or skin flaps that are loosely connected (if you leave them on they will burn while cooking).

Baby back ribs have an attached membrane. If the membrane is not removed before cooking, the ribs will be chewy and hard to separate.

Removing the membrane from the underside.

The easiest way to remove the membrane is to use a butter knife. To loosen the membrane, run the edge of the butter knife underneath it.

When you have one edge of the membrane loosened, slowly lift up to tear the membrane away from the ribs. If you have difficulty holding onto the membrane simply use a paper towel to grab it. Once detached, discard the membrane.

The ribs on the left show the membrane removed. The ribs on the right show the membrane still attached to the ribs.

In the picture above, the ribs on the left show the membrane removed and the ribs on the right show the membrane attached. You can see that the attached membrane appears wet and shiny.

Mustard acts as a binding agent for the spices.

The next step is to slather mustard all over the surface of the ribs. Make sure mustard covers EVERYTHING, including the ends and rib tips. Don’t worry… the mustard simply acts as a binding tool and the flavor does cook-off. I promise these ribs do not taste like mustard!

Mustard slathered all over the ribs.

Next, generously sprinkle the ribs with your favorite seasonings. My husband and I recommend John Henry’s Pecan Rub or Three Little Pigs BBQ Rub. We have used both and LOVE both! Finally, drizzle honey over the top.

Generously season your ribs and let sit overnight.

Cover your ribs and refrigerate overnight or for a full 24 hours. Remove the ribs from the refrigerator and allow them to reach room temperature before cooking.

Cook the ribs meat side down (bone side up) for 3 hours, then flip them over.

I don’t have UDS, are the country style ribs cooked over direct heat?

No, they are not cooked on an open flame like it’s a grill. It’s just cooked directly over the smoke.

The UDS is basically a homemade smoker. So no matter what smoker you are cooking on, you just need to hold the temp steady at 275.

If doing these on a pellet grill, assume it is ok to smoke them at 180, until IT of 150, then turn smoker up to 275 for Braise steps?

I am really enjoying your recipes that you cook on your uds. In fact I am following your recipes and getting Big Time GREAT results and compliments. How do you manage the spike in the temp on your drum when you put the country style ribs in the covered pan? I am still tying to dial in my cooking style on my drum.

If the temp spikes, I just it all closed down pretty quickly. If you limit the air flow, it will bring itself down.

If they are actually pork loin country style ribs, do you still take them to an internal temp of 195? Seems they would be dry if pork loin. I can understand the shoulder/butt cuts. The ones we get at our store are say pork loin country style ribs on the package. I took some to 195 and they seemed real dry. I take it they are much leaner and 145-150 would be the range?

Thanks for all your recipes! I’m labeled as the grill/smoke master on my BGE because of your recipes (my secret)!!

Same question. I did loin ribs like a butt-cut rib and it was overcooked. I didn’t realize the difference until I ruined the loin-cut. It was not tender, it was like hard jerky.

In this video it looks like loin and butt cuts were cooked the same. Some Malcom magic?

How long do you cook the loin country ribs? Do you still cook to 150 in the first phase and then braise for another hour? These look so good, really want to try them. Thank you.

Hi Malcolm, you’re my constant go to guy for Smoking meats and BBQ. My question is “should I rely on my Thermoworks Smoke ambient temperature probe or my Pitboss pellet smokers digital temp reading for inside of smoker/grill?”

I would go by the grate temp.

I make this recipe on a regular basis. Last time I made 2 packs of these and my baked bean recipe with my kick but baked mac and cheese. My family managed to eat it all.

Thank you Malcom, this is my favorite country style rib recipe!

Hi Malcom, big fan of your recipes, and this one is one of my favorites. Having had success cooking country style ribs like this many times in the past, I plan to try out double cut pork chops with this method. Do you think I need to make any adjustments?

About Malcom Reed &

I’m Malcom Reed and these are my recipes. I spend my life cooking – mostly slow-smoked barbecue.

Every week I share a new recipe on my HowToBBQRight YouTube Channel. And I travel the country cooking in over 20 competition barbecue and World Steak Cookoff contests each year as Killer Hogs barbecue team.


  1. Using a pairing knife, remove the thick membrane from the back of the ribs (the bone side). Some ribs come with it already gone.
  2. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet with two pieces of aluminum foil, shiny side in.
  3. Mix together the ingredients for the rub. Rub about half the rub into each side of the ribs.
  4. Place the rib meat side down on the aluminum foil and fold the foil around the meat, pinching it to make a sealed pouch.
  5. Bake the ribs in the oven for two hours.
  6. Remove the ribs from the oven open the foil and increase the temperature on your oven to 350 degrees..
  7. Brush with Honey BBQ sauce on all sides. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven, slice and serve with more barbecue sauce.

What’s in These Country Style Pork Ribs?

Going through my grandma’s recipes and seeing three different recipe cards written in her elegant, now 100-year-old German-immigrant script proves she made these pork ribs in the oven time and again. Since it is such a family favorite, I of course recorded it in my very first recipe book too.

Even for a novice cook like I was back then, the list of ingredients to make this flavorful dinner are fantastically basic and far from intimidating:

  • Country-style pork ribs, with bones when you can find them (my dad’s preference every time)
  • Onions
  • Vinegar
  • Soy sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Ketchup
  • Water
  • Dry sherry wine (not sherry vinegar)
  • Garlic
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Paprika
  • Chili powder
  • Flour
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Country Pork Ribs Ingredients

  • Apple Cider Vinegar — At first, it will seem like a lot of vinegar. Don’t worry, it will evaporate and just leave a bit of flavor .
  • Ketchup
  • Brown Sugar
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Salt
  • Paprika
  • Dry mustard
  • Pepper
  • Garlic — chopped
  • Country style boneless pork ribs –– you can use 1-3 pounds, depending on how many you plan to feed

Shop Our Kitchen Tools Used

  • Roasting pan, Dutch oven, or 9 x 13″ baking pan —we used a Dutch oven — for covering the ribs during cooking

  • Serving Suggestion: Serve with grilled corn-on-the-cob and a tossed green salad. For dessert serve sliced cantaloupe.

Place the ribs into an 8-quart saucepot and add water to cover.  Heat over medium-high heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 30 minutes or until the meat is tender.  Drain the ribs well in a colander.

Heat the soup, ketchup, honey, garlic powder and black pepper in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 minutes.

Pat the ribs dry and season with salt and pepper.  Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium.  Grill the ribs for 20 minutes or until well glazed, turning and brushing often with the soup mixture.  Cut the ribs into serving-sized pieces.
