How To Make Country Style Pork Ribs – A Make-ahead Recipe
Here’s why I love this recipe. The ribs are par-boiled stove top, then left to soak in a marinade sauce before a quick finish on a grill.
Stubb’s makes marinating an even easier task. No mixing or measuring, just grab a bottle of their Pork Marinade. This spicy blend of chiles, lime and ginger will give a kick to anything pig, from pork chops to tenderloins to ribs.
Marinate the ribs for 24 hours, or even better, two days. Using tongs, turn a few times during the marinade to coat with flavor.
The ribs are then easily finished on the grill for a quick slather and glaze with Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q sauce.
Make Ahead Country Style Ribs For Camping
Not only is this a great backyard grilled rib recipes, this is a super easy make ahead rib recipe for camping. Simple, here’s what to do.
- 24 hours before you’re leaving for your trip, par-boil the ribs for 20 minutes in a large pot on your stove-top
- Transfer the ribs to a couple of zip lock bags and add the marinade. I like to double bag them just to make sure they stay sealed. Or you can place them in a disposable roasting dish. Which ever method works best for you for transporting.
- Once at your campsite, throw the ribs on the grill and cook for 15 – 20 minutes basting liberally with BBQ sauce and turning frequently.
So pick up a package of country style pork ribs and a bottle of your Stubb’s pork marinade and bar-b-que sauce and enjoy an All-American platter of goodness this weekend.

Country Style Pork Ribs …. It’s Whats for Dinner
What I Love About Stubbs Products
Gotta love all that history: Stubb’s legendary Bar-B-Q was founded by C.B.”Stubb” Stubblefield. His picture appears on every single Stubb’s sauce, marinade and rub.
Stubbs said his life was in these bottles. When people asked him what he put in the sauce, he’s say “love and happiness”. He was called the King of Texas BBQ and Blues. Stubbs started off with a restaurant in 1968 and these sauces are what he served for twenty years prior to bottling them. When he began bottling the sauces he used old jam jars and whiskey bottles. He’d cork the whiskey bottles with jalapenos and serrano peppers. Today Stubb’s grandsons Rocky and Reggie Stubblefield serve as ambassadors for the brand.
And what I especially like about their products is the fact that they are all free of high fructose corn syrup, and they contain no artificial flavors or colors.
