I really like country-style pork ribs because they’re relatively inexpensive (almost always on sale) and there is a lot of meat compared to baby back ribs. The trick to getting a tender, succulent country-style rib is to bake it low and slow for several hours before finishing it on the grill.
And I paired these juicy ribs with a tangy and sweet barbecue sauce with a little bit of a kick. It has a great depth of flavor from molasses, coffee, and chipotle.
Homemade barbecue sauce is so easy to make and because you’re the one making it, you can adjust the heat level and sweetness according to your preference. We passed this bottle around the table several times… it was a mighty big hit with everyone. I may not buy bottled barbecue sauce again.
