Country-style ribs

When I was growing up down south, we'd always barbeque "country-style" ribe, which are big, honkin' hunks of meat, as opposed to, say, a baby-back. Any places serve these?

    1. Porky's in Inglewood has changed the style of the ribs. They are amazingly meaty and might be exactly what you are looking for. The meat is almost 1" thick.

      (Good too!)

      1. The non-baby back pork ribs at Phillip's BBQ are country style and mighty fine, too.

          Don't think so. Not at Phillip's. They're spare ribs. Country style ribs come from the sirloin part...spare ribs come from the belly part.

            Yeah, you're right, I think I was thinking of the rib tips.
