Andy Ricker roasts these meaty, tender ribs for two to three hours over a low fire for a fabulously smoky flavor.

Cocoa-and-Chile-Rubbed Pork Chops
Chef Tim Love rubs meat with a bit of sugar to help brown it but finishes the dish over low heat so the sugar doesn't char the outside. Here, he coats pork chops with cocoa and chile powders for a rub that's like a deconstructed version of Mexican mole sauce.

Pork with Grilled Vegetable Pisto
Pisto is a mixture of vegetables very similar to French ratatouille or Italian caponata.

Here, Janet Mendel grills the vegetables to create a deeply flavored pisto that enhances the flavors of robust, Tempranillo-based wines.
Maple-Glazed Pork Chops with Toasted Pecans
"Pork chops are a perennial favorite with our 140 members," Kristin Kimball says. "We have to limit the amount we give out, or they'd be gone too quickly." The pork is especially good glazed with maple syrup tapped from the farm's own trees. "We use maple syrup a lot, since we don't have sugar. We probably go through 15 gallons in a year."

This classic Mexican dish of pork shoulder and spices uses a double layer of banana leaves as a flavorful pouch for cooking, but the thick, fibrous leaves are not edible.
Grilled Pork Tenderloins with Vegetable Curry
