Cook's Tips:

To make this recipe ahead, cook ribs up to 2 days before grilling. Wrap tightly and refrigerate until ready to grill.

Country-style ribs may come bone-in or boneless. Both types can be used in this recipe. They are cut from the pok loin and are meatier than spareribs or back ribs.

When basting grilled foods with barbecue sauce, baste the last 10-15 minutes of grilling to avoid burning.
