    Can you fellas help me out with a basic smoke for beef ribs. I have a nice rub that I like but in terms of the smoking process, what sort of game plan do I want to have?

    I smoke my beef ribs at 200-220 for 4-5 hours.
    They usually turn out nice and tender but not too tender.

    I only cook the for the neighbor, i cook them at around 225*, and when the meat pulls back on the bone about 1/2-3/4 in., i smear some butter on the and cook for about 1/2 hr longer, he really likes them, myself i don't care for beef ribs anyway they are done. use your faverite rub and try it, and tweat your methods to find that perfect rib.

    Lots of ways to do the "Beefies". I personally dont foil them. No need to due to the fat content. The temps others have stated are all correct...low & slow! The fat will render out, thus keeping them moist.

    My .02cts worth...... Smoke them for 2 hrs, bone down. Spritz with favorite liquid (I like apple juice) and flip. Repeat every hr until the bone pulls back anywhere 1/4" - 3/4" (about 5-6 hrs...depending on the size of rack).

    Here's my way. Night before remove skin and rub with wostershire sauce, let sit for an hour, then apply rub to both sides. Cover with plastic wrap and in the fridge overnight. Next day, remove from fridge and bring to room temp. Smoke at 211* - 215* for 2.5 hours, then spray with some mop sauce and foil up and back in the smoker for 1.5 - 2 hours. Remove from foil (save it) mop, and back in smoker for 20 - 30 minutes, then every 10-15 minutes coat with BBQ sauce and gentally lay the foil over the ribs to "catch the smoke" after doing this 2 times, chuck foil, bring the temp up to 225* and coat with BBQ sauce 2-3 more times until the desired amount is on. Pull, let rest covered for 10 minutes, eat.
