Pecking Order™ Country Style Ribs
Until about a month ago, I don't think I'd ever heard of a "Country Style Rib" before. A friend gave us a package of them from Costco proclaiming how good they are. Not knowing exactly what they were or how to cook them, we froze them and took to the Internet to investigate. Interestingly, there seem to be two different types of "Country Style Ribs," one that is called "pork loin country-style ribs," which can come with bones in it, but often has the bones removed and the other is called "pork shoulder country-style ribs," which are almost always boneless and usually fattier than the pork loin variety. With fat comes flavor. Being proper shoulder meat, these boneless ribs have more connective tissue and are well suited to low and slow cooking to a temperature where the connective tissues break down and turn to "butter" yielding a tender, juicy final product that absolutely exudes flavor. The real SURPRISE here is that we're using our new Pecking Order™ poultry seasoning on pork and it's absolutely incredible! We first tried it on beef short ribs (recipe to come) and were very pleased with the results, then we tried it on smoked, then seared pork chops and were blown away, which led us to try it on ribs. It makes sense, though! There's a strong base of Chain Reaction™ to start with, then a lot of black pepper, turmeric, coriander, and a touch of sugar. What's not to like? When you think of country style meals, you think of meals that leave you completely satisfied. Hey, it’s called comfort food for a reason. With Casa M Spice CoⓇ’s Pecking OrderⓇ seasoning, you can give that comfort to your family and friends with country style ribs that are delicious, tender, juicy and packed with flavor. Pecking OrderⓇ may be a poultry seasoning, but it tastes great on pork ribs. Give it a try and create one of our favorite country style dinners.#SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #CasaMSpice

LET’S GET COOKING
Preheat your smoker to 225℉.
Salt the ribs at about 1/4 teaspoon per pound of raw ribs. Sprinkle evenly and ensure you salt all surfaces.
After salting, sprinkle Pecking Order™ or Uncontrolled Pecking Order™ on the ribs on every surface. Use as much or as little as desired. You can't over-salt by accident with Pecking Order™ as it is very low sodium and all about flavor.
Place the ribs in your smoker evenly spaced and smoke until the internal temperature of the ribs is 195℉.
Remove the ribs from the smoker when they are at the correct temperature and let them stand for 10-15 minutes.
Serve whole or cut and serve as desired.
