'Meaty' Back Ribs

The label says "Meaty Back Ribs" but in actuality it's a Pork Loin Rib End Roast with the chine bone removed. Part of the same cut that the Original Country Style Ribs were cut from. They had them priced at $4.99 lb :confused: but I bought them this morning reduced down to $1.99.

Note the faux pas made by the 'butcher' when he opened the cryovac packaging





I just coated them with evoo, garlic and Penzey's Smoked 4S Salt. I have a choice of cooking them low and slow at 250 or hot and quick at 350, but think I'll split the difference and indirect them at 300 with some nice maple wood given to me by my neighbor.

While the ribs were cooking away, I whipped up another loaf of Olive Oil Bread.



These cooked for about 2 hours at 300 with some maple smoke. Last 15 minutes I gave it a brushing of Budweiser BBQ Sauce



Not the smoke ring I was looking for, but they are nice and juicy. Probably the Smithfield 'self basting', altho it wasn't on the package.



Served with some doctored up Bush's Steak House Grilling Beans (drained, added Bud Sauce and bacon) and some steamed broccoli. Ok for a rainy Sat nite dinner.

I've been meaning to try those grilling beans. Bush's has so many flavors.... I mainly get the country style flavor, but I'm hard pressed to tell much of a difference between formulas, since I Dr them up, too. Any real difference you noticed?

Everything looks good, too.

Butcher, your ribs and bread look incredible!!!

Did you post the bread recipe somewhere?

Also, I just bought some smoked salt at the Atlantic Spice Company but haven't tried it yet. Could you taste it on the ribs, or was the flavor masked by the real smoke and/or sauce?

Nice job!

That looks delicious! Between the beans and broccoli, you'll be able to make enough methane to drive your car to work!

Other than the Steak House variety, the others are too sweet for my taste.

No, but I did list the book over in the 'new cook book' thread.

You can taste it better if you don't smoke the food like I did. I like the smoked salt on my eggs

Also, the Penzey's 4S Smoked Salt has more than just salt added to it....pepper, garlic, paprika, etc
