Sweet and Tangy Country-Style Pork Ribs

I love doing barbecued pork ribs on the grill. I can safely say next to beef steak they are my favorite.

This Country-Style Pork Ribs recipe is very simple to prepare, and they are delicious.

Sweet and Tangy Country-Style Pork Ribs

  • Author: Cullys Kitchen


  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 pounds country-style bone-in ribs
  • ½ cup barbeque sauce (plus extra for serving)


  1. In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar, salt, chili powder, and cayenne pepper.
  2. Rub the spice mixture into the ribs on all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 – 24 hours.
  3. Prepare grill and preheat the grill for 15 minutes or until the grill is hot. Leave the main burner on and shut off all other burners; trying to maintain a temperature of 350F. Grill ribs on the hot side of grill until nicely browned, move ribs to the cooler side of the grill, and coat with a ¼ cup of the barbeque sauce. Cook for 6 minutes and flip ribs; coat with the remaining sauce.
  4. Grill to an internal temperature of 350F, remove to a serving platter and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
  5. Note: if using a small grill you may need to leave both burners on low to maintain the temperature.
