Ingredients
  • 3  pounds  pork country-style ribs
  •  Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2  cups  hickory or oak chips
  • 1/2  cup  yellow mustard
  • 1/4  cup  honey
  • 1/4  cup  cider vinegar
  • 1/4  cup  apple juice
  • 1  tablespoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  bottled hot pepper sauce
  •  Sweet Tea (see recipe below) (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Trim fat from ribs. Place ribs in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle ribs with salt and black pepper. Cover dish with foil. Bake for 1-3/4 to 2 hours or until tender. Drain off fat.

2. At least 1 hour before grilling, soak wood chips in enough water to cover. Drain wood chips.

3. For sauce, in a small saucepan combine mustard, honey, vinegar, apple juice, Worcestershire sauce, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and hot pepper sauce. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, 12 to 15 minutes or until desired consistency, stirring occasionally.

4. For a charcoal grill, sprinkle wood chips over medium coals. Place ribs on the grill rack directly over coals. Grill, covered, for 15 minutes, turning once and brushing occasionally with some of the sauce. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Add wood chips according to manufacturer directions. Place ribs on grill rack. Grill as directed above.) Serve ribs with remaining sauce.

5. If desired, serve with Sweet Tea. Makes 4 servings.
