When entertaining the gang with a grill session, a favorite of many barbecue aficionados is the country rib. A rich, flavorful piece of pork that soaks up lots of flavor and is oh, so hearty.
Though you can buy country ribs at most grocery stores in small packs, these relatively unknown gems of the grill mainly come in family packs of 12 or more. So, that means there will likely be leftovers after your event.
If you are in a snacking mood, we suggest giving our Backroad Nachos a try. The only problem is, once you run out, you’ll be longing for more of these spicy, flavorful appetizers.
