My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Country-Style Pork Ribs - Grilled

I promise these will become your favorite way to prepare country ribs. Most of the cooking is done in advance and while you sleep. Perfect for this long busy weekend coming up.

What meat item do you see on sale more than any other? Right, Country-Style Ribs. For years I never bought these things, too much trouble, takes to long to cook, too fatty, etc. Well, I don't know everything! Country-Style Ribs are better than any part of the piggy, except maybe the butt. Moist, tender and flavorful.

These are very easy, but do take a little planning ahead

Country-Style Pork Ribs - Grilled
Depends on the size package of ribs
Printer Friendly Version

1 package country-style ribs
1 large bottle Italian dressing
Garlic Salt or powder (I prefer powder or granulated)
Your favorite barbecue sauce

The morning before the day you will serve them, rub the ribs, with the garlic salt or powder. Marinate the ribs in the Italian dressing and wrap in foil. Refrigerate. Before going to bed, set the oven to 200 degrees F. and place ribs in the oven. Cook all night. As soon as you get up in the morning, take the ribs out of the oven. When you are ready to grill, baste the ribs with barbecue sauce and cook for 30 minutes.

Tell me these are not the best country ribs you have ever had.
