I smoked up my first batch of beef spare ribs today. They were on sale because they were going out of date soon so I snagged a rack. McCormicks steak rub.....3 hours of apple and hickory smoke.....in the foil for an hour and a half.....all @ 250 degrees makes for some mighty fine tasting ribs. I was going to cook them for another hour out of the foil but they were done. When I tried to move them back into the smoker the bones all fell out. I figured they were just telling me they'd had enough. They really shrink down but what is left is some of the most delicious meat I have ever tasted. I hope it wasn't a fluke. Having practiced with pork ribs helped me out a lot. But I'm not sure I'll even do pork ribs again. These are much better in my opinion. Sorry no pics, I was just screwing around cooking on my off day and was very surprised.
