  • 4 Country Style Pork Ribs
  • 2 tablespoons Yellow Mustard (or as needed)
  • 4 tablespoons BBQ Dry Rub (or as needed)
  • ½ cup BBQ Sauce (or as needed)


  • Coat each pork rib with a thin layer of yellow mustard, then generously dust with BBQ seasoning on all sides. (this can be done up to a day in advance or immediately prior to grilling)
  • Fill a charcoal chimney up with charcoal and dump 80% of it out onto one side of the grill. Light the remaining handful of briquettes and add them on top of the unlit charcoal. (see note)
  • Lightly oil the grill grates to prevent sticking and place the pork ribs on the far side of the grill, away from the coals. If using a gas grill, turn a row of burners on low and place the ribs on the grate opposite the flame.
  • Cover the grill while cooking. Rotate and flip the pork ribs every 30 minutes.
  • After 2 hours of cooking paint the pork ribs with BBQ sauce, if desired. After 30 more minutes, flip and apply a coat of sauce to the other side.
  • Remove ribs from the grill, let rest for 5 minutes and serve.


Only lighting a few briquettes helps your charcoal burn slower, at a lower temperature. This helps ensure your charcoal will last for the 3-hour cooking session and not burn too hot. If the grill is getting too hot, close the dampers to restrict oxygen.
Ignore the calorie count for this recipe. The calorie calculator is WAY off, but I have to include it or face Google's wrath. >-(
