    I remember seeing a post on smokin' these puppies, but it slips by me at the moment.

    I did some a few weeks ago, they were not bad, but somewhat greasey. Mine were individually cut and didn't look as lean as yours do though. What I did was install Jeff's rub, let them sit in the fridge overnight. Next day, I put them in an open aluminum pan, spritzed with apple juice, applied S&P, then into the CG at 230-240.

    I let them go for a couple of hours, drained off some of the fat, re-spritzed then foiled for an hour or so. I removed them from the pan and placed them directly on the grates, applied a mop of BBQ sauce and cooked them for 1/2 hour or so.

    They were tender and flavorful, but too greasey for me. Maybe if I had eliminated the pan, they would have been better.

    Good luck and keep us posted on your results!

    RIP, ol buddy, I will not stear you wrong. Can you get Mojo Crillio up there? If you do, marinade them over night and you will not need much else. I just did up some beef ribs again the other night and DAM!!! [​IMG]

    I did some a few weeks back... started them here and finished em' at Gramasons place.... Rubbed, in fridge overnight, 3-2-1- method they came out good... rub was a simple one.... some garllic power, a little of old bay, and just a few things in the "Busted Luck Hangout" rack and i covered with a little "hickory grillin sauce" ( i got up in PA at the Kettle Kitchen- an Amish place) during the last 1 stage

    Remember that beef really does not need the full 3-2-1 process. I like my beef med to med. rare. I don't think I ever go more than 3 1/2 hours when doing beef ribs. If you found them more than enough done, try backing off to a 2-1.5-.5 and see how that goes. JMHO of course [​IMG]

    I thought I would watch for pull back. As soon as the meat pulled back from the bone I will wrap.

    I do not know what you have decided to do with your ribs. Here is the way I cook mine in a Dutch Oven.

    Bar-B-Q Beef Ribs

    These will be the best beef ribs that you ever wrapped a lip around. Daryle

    1 onion chopped
    1 cup water
    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1 tsp A-1 Steak Sauce
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 can tomato soup
    1/4 cup vinegar
    1 1/4 cups catsup
    1 1/2 tsp paprika
    1 1/2 tsp chili powder
    1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 1/4 tablespoons vegetable oil

    Brown ribs in a cast iron pot. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer for 10 minutes, pour over ribs and bake 2 to 3 hours at 300°.

    I haven't used these yet - haven't seen them either but yours look fatty enough to just smoke on the grate and maybe add your favoite sauce at the end.

    I haven't trimed the fat cap off of them yet, I took the pic as soon as I got them home. They look really good under the fat cap. Look for a play by play later on today.
