Fresh Pork Extra Meaty Back Ribs
Cook Smithfield Pork Ribs until tender and meat pulls away from the bones, about 195°F. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.
OVEN: Heat oven to 350°F. Season ribs as desired and place, meaty side up, on foil-lined shallow baking pan. Roast ribs 1 1/2 to 2 hours until tender. If desired, brush ribs with sauce during last 30 minutes of roasting.
GRILL/SMOKER: Heat grill/smoker for indirect cooking at 275°F. Add wood for smoking, if using. Season ribs as desired and place, meaty side up, on grill/smoker; cook for 2 hours, spraying with apple juice every 30 minutes. Wrap each rack tightly with heavy duty aluminum foil. Return to grill/smoker, meaty side down, and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours more over indirect heat, until very tender. Remove ribs from foil and place back on grill/smoker; brush with sauce and cook 10 to 15 minutes until the sauce is set.
OVEN/GRILL: Follow OVEN directions. Once tender, place ribs on grill directly over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, turning frequently. If desired, brush ribs with sauce during grilling.
