We're having company from Brazil - the land of outdoor grilling. Country ribs were on sale locally, so this seemed a no-brainer! I happened to have those 2 types of chili powder - other can be used instead. Same with the salt.

How to Make Grilled Country-Style Ribs


  • 1In a small bowl, measure and blend together all the seasonings. Rub into all surfaces of country ribs. Put into resealable bag or dish covered with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. (Less time will work, flavors won't be as intense)
  • 2Let the ribs sit at room temperature for 1 hour before cooking. Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium (about 350°F to 450°F). If using charcoal, let coals turn gray and spread out.
  • 3Place the ribs on the grill with the larger, flatter side down, cover the grill, and cook until the pork is browned and crusty on the bottom, about 5 to 7 minutes. Flip, cover, and cook until it’s browned and crusty on the other side, about 5 to 7 minutes more. Rotate the ribs so that they are resting on a thinner side (you may need to prop them up against one another), cover, and cook until browned and crusty, about 4 to 6 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 4 to 6 minutes more. Transfer to a clean serving platter, tent loosely with foil, and let rest about 5 minutes before serving.
