Grilled Country-Style Pork Ribs
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
- 2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 1/2 pounds country-style pork ribs
1.Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl and stir with a fork to combine.
2.Rub the combined spices evenly on all sides of the ribs.
3.Place the meat in a 1-gallon resealable bag and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. If you're in a hurry, skip this step. The ribs will still be good.
4.Let the ribs sit at room temperature for 1 hour before cooking.
5.Heat the grill to medium -- high heat will cause the fat on the meat to scorch. Open a beer. Drink it.
6.Place the ribs on the grill, flat site down. Cover the grill and cook until the pork is browned and crusty on the bottom, about 5-7 minutes. Flip, cover, and cook until it’s browned and crusty on the other side, about 5-7 minutes more.
7.Rotate the ribs so that they are resting upright, on a thinner side (you may need to prop them up against one another), cover, and cook until browned and crusty, 3-4 minutes. Flip to the other thinner side, cover, and cook until browned and crusty or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thickest rib registers 145°F, about 3-4 minutes more.
8.Transfer to a clean serving platter, tent loosely with foil, and let rest about 5 minutes before serving.
