    I found a great butcher here in NorCal and purchased the largest, meatiest beef ribs on the rack then had him cut them in half. Salt and pepper only then into the fridge for 15 hours or so. I just threw them on at 225F for a late afternoon dinner. Seeing some other posts here I see a higher temp of 250-270. Veterans of the Texas style beef ribs: any recommendation to not do the lower temp? Will the fat breakdown enough? I don't want to go too high and get jerky. Any tips appreciated!

    *Oh and added a light dusting of Oakland Dust rub - Bought it but never tried it and got too excited to skip until the next one...

    They look great, I would keep it at 225. Don't overcook them, med/rare is good.

    Beef Ribs are my Favorite Ribs!![​IMG]

    I know what you mean----I like to do my Prime Ribs to Med-Rare, but the Fatty meat around the Rib bones, I like to do longer, more like Ribs so the fat breaks down better.

    Here's a couple I did in Step by Step form, with tips:

    Awesome! Thanks Bear! They came out looking great but a little early for dinner so letting them rest and will warm up before cutting up.
