My cousin Fred was the organizer of the first Paulk reunion in Willacoochee, Georgia, in 1993. He said from the beginning, “Y’all come and I’ll provide the meat. You can bring something if you want to but it’s more important that you come.” He’s kept his promise by providing delicious pork ribs every time. His “special spray” makes these ribs flavorful. We recommend that you have your butcher cut each pork rib slab in half lengthwise and then into two-rib sections. They cook faster and are easier to handle and eat.
Rub all sides of the pork with the seasoned salt and lemon pepper seasoning. Put the rib sections on the grill. Prepare Fred’s Special Spray by mixing the lemon juice, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Put this mixture in a food-safe spray bottle. Spray the ribs with Fred’s Special Spray. Cook the ribs until they are browned, about 1½ hours, spraying often with the sauce. Put the ribs in a 4-inch-deep stainless-steel pan with a lid. Spray the ribs once more and close the lid completely. Increase the grill temperature to 300°F and cook the covered ribs for 3 hours more.
For the second cooking, you can substitute a baking bag for the covered pan and cook the ribs in a 300°F oven for 3 hours.
