Boneless country-style ribs are one of my favorite cuts of pork. These strips of meat are cut from the shoulder of a pig, near the loin. They are meatier than other cuts of pork and are made from the same area as pork butt and pork shoulder roasts. They are fantastic smoked, grilled and even baked in the oven using my recipe below.

Patrick's oven baked pork tips:
Sometimes you don't have time to get the smoker out. No worries, pork tastes great cooked in the oven too!
