    Prime Beef Ribs (Trimmed From my Big December Score of Standing Rib Roasts)

    Bought 10 Prime Ribs, at about 6 pounds each, for $4.99 per lb.
    Trimmed all the bones off, giving me 2 packs of Dinos, 7 pounds each.

    Day #1:
    Remove membrane, rinse, dry, & rub.
    Wrap in plastic wrap, and put in fridge overnight.

    Day #2:
    I got a late start, because of a morning meeting, so I decide to go with 250˚ for 5 hours.

    11:50AM-----------Preheat MES 40 to 250˚, and fill two rows of AMNPS with Hickory pellets, and light one end.
    12:15PM-----------Put Ribs on racks & into Smoker.
    12:30PM-----------Put AMNPS on bottom bars to left of chip drawer.
    3:15PM------------Put all ribs in foil pan with my foil mixture (see below), cover with double foil & return to smoker.
    5:00PM------------Kill MES heat.
    5:30PM------------Pull Ribs.

    My "Foil Mixture":
    Apple Juice-------------------------------6 ounces
    Ken's Honey Teriyaki Marinade---------------2 ounces
    JD BBQ Sauce (or other good sauce)-----------2 ounces

    Heat up & stir before using.

    The McCormick's Sweet & Smoky Rub was great. I will use this again if I can find it cheap enough.

    Thanks For Looking,

    All Ready to Smoke:

    Ready to go:
    AMNPS on bars in bottom left, with half of a foil pan protecting it from drippings.
    Foiled Aluminum sheet covered with foil, is tilted just right to force the heat to go over to the middle of the smoker,
    instead of going straight up the right side & out the exhaust vent:

    Ready for foiling at 3 hours:

    Ribs all cut up----Juices for Au Jus in bowl:

    Way to score on those rib roasts and getting those bonus beef back ribs.  That is an excelent presentation!!! Its real hard to get beef back ribs fresh off the roast like that. Beef ribs are my very favorite ribs. Thanks again for the pics and your detailed process. Reinhard
