Western style ribs are a boneless cut of pork that comes from the shoulder of the animal. This cut is fattier than other types of ribs and fairly tender. Season the ribs with a dry rub spice mix. Slow cook on a grill for the most tender ribs. Serve with a generous helping of your choice of store bought barbecue sauce(s). Serve alongside baked potatoes and salads for a restaurant style meal at home.
