Grilled Country Style Ribs
Welcome to Daryn's Backyard! I love my Weber kettle grills, but all of these recipes can easily be transferred to another method of cooking. The key is time and temperature, and starting with the best pork you can find doesn't hurt. Country-style pork ribs are a cut of meat that comes from the blade end of the pork loin, close to the pork shoulder. They are versatile and can be cooked in a variety of ways, including grilling, roasting, braising, or even smoked. They can be seasoned with a dry rub or marinated before cooking, and are often paired with BBQ sauce.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 4-6



  • 4-5 lbs country-style pork ribs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • BBQ sauce (optional)



  1. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, kosher salt, and cayenne pepper to make a dry rub.
  2. Generously rub the dry rub all over the country-style ribs, making sure to coat them evenly on all sides.
  3. Allow ribs to marinate for 1 to 6 hours.
  4. Preheat your Weber Kettle grill to medium heat (around 300-325°F).
  5. Place the ribs on the grill over indirect heat, and cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. To create indirect heat, place the coals on one side of the grill and the ribs on the other side.
  6. Flip ribs after 60 minutes to char both sides. 
  7. You can also baste the ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce if desired during the last 10-15 minutes of cooking.
  8. Check the internal temperature of the ribs using a meat thermometer. They should reach an internal temperature of 195-205°F.
  9. Once the ribs are cooked to perfection, remove them from the grill and let them rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.
