What to serve with Smoked Country Style Ribs
Traeger Country Style Ribs
- 1/8 cup paprika
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 2 lbs Country Style Pork Ribs
- BBQ rub
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1 cup apple juice
- Rub country style ribs with BBQ rub – or use a premade. My favorite is Historic BBQ
- Setup your Traeger to cook at 225 degrees and place ribs on grill. Cook until ribs are at 155 degrees – approx 3 hours. Spritz the ribs with apple juice every hour until they get up to temp.
- When the ribs hit 155, remove them from the Traeger, and use tongs to place each of them in a large roasting dish or disposable pan.
- Add a half cup of apple juice to the roaster, along with four pats of butter. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil, and return the ribs to your smoker.
- Then adjust the temp of your smoker to 275, and let ribs cook until meat temp is 190. It will take about 60 minutes for them to come up to temp.
- When they are all up to temp, remove the ribs from the roasting pan and place them back on the grill rack and return to the smoker.
- Brush each of the ribs with your favorite bbq sauce, and let them cook at 275 for about 15 min.
- Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes – then (finally) enjoy!
