Recipe Thursday-Clemens Slow and Low Country Ribs

Posted on August 15th, 2013 | Posted in Grilling, Main Course, Recipes, Supplier of the Month

I have grown to love ribs, but have never made them…I know that you need to slowly cook ribs, which deterred me from making them. So with Clemens Food Group being our Supplier of the Month I decided to take this opportunity to make a dish that I normally would not make-ribs. I scoured for rib recipes and came across this Slow and Low Country Ribs recipe. I was drawn to it because of the use of country style ribs. They are big slabs of porky goodness, laced with fat, and require slow, low-temperature cooking to become delicious. Country style ribs are cut from the sirloin or rib end of the pork loin. The meatiest variety of ribs, that are typically cut into individual servings, which is how Clemens ribs are packed. These pork ribs are perfect for those who want to use a knife and fork.

The recipe called for grilling them anywhere between 3-5 hours until the meat began to fall apart. I ended up grilling mine for four and a half hours between 250-300 degrees on my gas grill. You can top them with a BBQ sauce of your choice, but let me recommend this homemade Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce. It adds a nice heat (cayenne pepper) and sweetness (honey and Dr. Pepper) to the mouthwatering meaty ribs!

Slow and Low Country Ribs

Hometown's Country Style Ribs

Yield: Serves 6-8
4 country ribs, about 3 pounds (HTF1680)
Kosher salt (CQS030)
Vegetable oil (992065)
The barbecue sauce of your choice

Coat the ribs in oil and then salt them well. Use a little more salt than you think you should, especially over the fatty parts of the ribs. Much of the fat will render away in cooking, leaving a crispy-salty-fatty bit you will be fighting over with your friends.

To cook the ribs, you have several choices. You can bake them in a 250°F oven (line a baking pan with foil first). You can slow-roast them in a gas grill between 250 to 300°F, which is what I did for this recipe, (covered) with half the burners turned off (put them on the side that is not over direct flame). You can set up a large charcoal grill like a smoker and cook the country ribs on the cool side (again covered). But best of all would be to build a wood fire on one side of the grill and slowly barbecue these ribs over wood smoke.

No matter what you do, let the ribs cook untouched for 90 minutes. At the 90-minute mark, turn them and paint them with your barbecue sauce – I like the sweet-spicy Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce for this, but you could also use a South Carolina mustard-based barbecue sauce, a Bourbon BBQ sauce, or a traditional Kansas City-style sauce.

Every 30 minutes or so, turn your ribs and paint them again with the sauce. How long to cook? Depends on how hot your fire is. At least 3 hours. Maybe as many as 5 hours. You really, really want to slow-cook these ribs because they are pretty fatty. The slower you cook them, the more fat renders out and the smoother your ribs will be. Take your time.

When the meat begins to fall apart – you will notice this when you turn the rib – you are ready for the final step. Paint the ribs one more time and then move them to the hot side of the grill. If you are using the oven method, move the ribs to the broiler. Let the ribs cook a minute or two so the sauce can caramelize. Pay attention, and do not let the ribs get too blackened. A little char is good, but you do not want a briquette.

Serve with napkins and your favorite veggie side.
