I'm with Blacksmoke on this one.
The beef ribs you get around here are just pathetic.
Those ribs look awesome! Where did you find beef ribs with that much meat? All I can find around here is stuff that you couldn't use for soup bones. Good score on both!!
I completely understand the Smoking in the rain. Here near Astoria it has been coming down in buckets all month. One day we had no rain and I smoked 21 racks of spares for a function, pulled the last one of just as the cloud burst happened. Welcome to the forum!!
Thanks for all the generous comments. On the beef ribs, I got them at Gartner's meat market here in Portland. It's a nice locally owned place in NE with a full service putcher, and the prices are really good. Beef Ribs are hard to find at the supermarket, so I had to search a little.
