I have to admit, this was a fun recipe to make and a SUPER fun recipe to eat! Pork Country Style Ribs aren’t reallllly ribs – they’re closer to meaty, flavorful pork chops with a bone in them – but they’re still great when you smoke them! This recipes takes rich pork flavor then adds delicious bacon, crisp smoke flavor and a BBQ Beer Glaze! What’s not to like about it? 2 “ribs” worth of Country Style Ribs will feed everyone but the heaviest eater, so stock up on these affordable cuts of pork and enjoy!

- 4 Pork Country Style Ribs
- 8 slice(s) Bacon
- 2 cup(s) BBQ Sauce (use your favorite)
- 1 cup(s) Beer (light bodied recommended)
- 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar (plain white vinegar also works)
- 1 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
- Pork BBQ Rub (use your favorite)
Remove the Pork Country Style Ribs from the packaging and rub them all over with first yellow mustard and then with Pork BBQ Rub. The mustard helps the spice and bacon stick to the meat.
Wrap two slices of bacon around the meaty end of each rib and secure the bacon with toothpicks. Leave the bone side exposed. We recommend using the same number of toothpicks on each rib so you can remember how many to take out before you eat!
Set up your smoker (or grill) to cook the ribs as follow. Set to indirect heat cooking at 325˚F. Add a fruit wood chunk or chip like apple or cherry and a drip pan filled with water.
Lay the ribs out in an aluminum foil lined baking pan for easy clean up and place on the smoker or grill. Smoke the ribs for one hour at 325°F.
While the ribs are smoking, mix together the BBQ Beer Glaze in a small bowl by combining the BBQ Sauce, Beer, vinegar and 1 tbsp. of yellow mustard. Whisk together until combined. Let sit in refrigerator until needed.
After the ribs have smoked for one hour, brush the outside of the ribs with the BBQ Beer Glaze and raise heat to 400°F. Cook for 30 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 160°F.
Remove from smoker, let sit for five minutes and serve. Enjoy!
