A shorter cooking time will have to occur.

I'd guess the 5 pounds of ribs is just a longer strip of ribs (more ribs in a row), rather than a thicker piece of meat so I would expect it to cook in the same amount of time.

I would think it would take about the same amount of time too, not like it is a thick roast(small roast vs large roast).

ribs is ribs and they take time to cook and tenderize and get that melt in your mouth, fallin' off the bone, bone suckin' flavor.

Country style pork ribs (cut from the loin - not the country style "spare" ribs cut from the back) are one of my favorite foods!

The cooking time will be about the same for 3.25 vs 5 lbs. Don't know how you are cooking them - but bet there won't be 10-minutes difference.

Michael, thanks for explaining the difference. I love country style ribs, too. I even use them in my minestrone.

Can I ask? You are speaking of "pork" ribs, isn't it? What type of cooking is "country style"? I'm very interested in this.....

You are correct. We are talking about pork ribs. "Country Style" refers to the cut of the ribs, not the style of cooking.

As Michael explained earlier, country style ribs are cut from a different portion of the pig and are heavier and meatier than spare ribs or baby back ribs.
