    Hard to find sometimes are the ribs that haven't been gouged out by some machine and then frozen for a cheap price, I won't even buy them.

    I looked in my local Kroger's meat display and saw some fresh ones for 2.99. Nope, anothe dollar I can buy some meat. I wandered over to where they had some gouged out ones for 1.49 and found this.



    Not the meatiest I have gotten but they didn't have some machine carving out the meat.


    1.49 a pound.



    Rubed with yoshidas and garlic and lemon pepper.



    Carol asked me to smoke some meatballs for a friend of hers, we had some frozen from Sam's so I tossed them in also.

    I am going to smoke the ribs at 250' to see if I can render the fat for 2 hours and go from there.

    More to come.

    Thanks for watching.

    Looking good, Ron. I'll be interested to see how the meatballs turn out too.

    I have rarely seen good beef racks down here. Always seem to opt out for the individually cut ribs. Atleast I can tell when they are meaty.

    I don't see them here unless they are called short ribs here, and they are very fatty.

    Great score Ron! Amazing the price cut due to little differences.
    Only smoked beef ribs a few times but they are incredible.
    Looking forward to another fine Qview.

    So far as the meatballs they really liked them at Carol's work.



    I smoked them for about 4 1/2 hours.


    I added some Sweet Baby Rays sauce for the last hour.


    Sorry for the crummy picture here.

    I was only going to eat 2 bones but had 4 instead, they were really good.

    Thanks for watching.

    Hey Ron,
    Great ribs

    Meatball question: Were they precooked and you just tossed em on for some smokiness?
    Or did you cook them on the smoker?

    They were frozen pre cooked from Sam's club. I just wanted to add some flavor.
