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 2½ 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.
