No. Buy a three pack vacuum bag of back ribs at Costco and see what I mean.
I know the difference between country style ribs and baby back ribs.
For the record. Costco does not sell bone in country style ribs.
Its back ribs or St. Louis cut ribs.

So in answer to my question. Were the back ribs from Costco?
I asked about the "extra" meat because in your picture, it looks like the back ribs I get from Costco.
Regular ribs on the thin end and small pork chops on the fat end.

Country style ribs, according to this site - Pork Country-style Ribs - National Pork Board, country style ribs come from the sirloin, thick side, and are indeed ribs. They are great when cooked properly, either with a dry or wet rub on the grill, or in the oven. I've even cooked them in the pressure cooker and sauced them when they were done. I love country style ribs as much as I love the Carolina Cut ribs - https://www.google.com/search?q=St+L...2F%3B387%3B306. Baby-back are my least favorite ribs, as the ratio of bone to meat has too much bone. St. Lewis cut are my 2nd favorite cut.

No, not from Costco. I love shopping at Costco but the closest one to me is an hour and a half away.

Maybe what they call country styles, but not anyone down here. All country styles down here are from the shoulder butt section and are not true ribs.

I happened to surf by an episode of BBQ Pitmasters yesterday, and one of the cuts they were doing was being called country style ribs. They didn't look anything like any country style I ever saw. They were in a rack for smoking and after being cut up for the judges, they looked more like frenched rib chops than country style ribs. I've certainly never seen a rack anywhere else that looked like those ones.

The country style ribs I've always done are the same as the ones you made. Sometimes they have some bone, other times they don't - just depends on what part of the butt they come from - but when they do have some bone, it doesn't look anything like a rib. More like shoulder blade.

When I buy CS ribs at the local supermarket, they look like this with a bone and several different muscles represented.

Obviously, different areas have different cuts they call CS. Don't much matter, smoked pork is good eats.

That was the point of my post.

You're right, pork rules!

Pork is good, but liverwurst rules. Naw, I was just kidding. I love grilled pork, over glowing coals. But then again, I love grilled chicken, and grilled ribeyes, and grilled brookies, and grilled turkey, and grilled lamb and ...

Haven't tired grilled grasshoppers, but grilled swordfish is fabulous.

And Andy, that's what country style ribs look like here as well. I can believe they are true ribs, from the sirloin end.

Pork may not rule in my house, bit it ties with the rest.
