None taken!

 

Just seems odd that the 6 guys who replied, who use the 3-2-1 method, don't find fault with any other method.

From the other side, we got:

Using 3-2-1 is like making pot roast, and a "Don't you dare use 3-2-1".

Bad choice of words on my part. Pot roast, though it is one of my favorite meals, was a bit of an unfair metaphor. The 3-2-1 is a tried and true method, and I've used it on spare ribs (albeit, in the oven, I'm new to the smoker world) several times with great results. The beauty of these forums is in the wide range of info provided. The important thing is that Tony gets the info HE needs and settles on a method that works for him and his family.

No problem, and thank you for the reply.

 

He should be good to go now.

 You're being too sensitive Bear. I have no issue with anyone doing 3-2-1 with it, my only opinion was that would be overdoing of very good and "already" tender meat. Many of those 6 obviously have never tried the other ways. I personally only had smoked it, until a friend told me to slap in on the grill. He was right it came out wonderful, as you can see by the photo.   You can throw it in a crock pot for all I care. PDT_Armataz_01_29.gif

You could be right about being sensitive, but when someone says "Don't you dare" do it the way I do it, that's kind of demoralizing, don't you think?

That's why when someone asks how I do something, I tell them how I do it. I don't tell them, "Don't do it the way the other guys do it".

 

Now you're saying that the 6 guys who reported to use 3-2-1 have never had Prime Rib.

I have made Prime Rib ribs on the grill, in the stove, in the crock pot (before I had a smoker), smoked to 137˚, and finally 3-2-1. 

3-2-1 is my favorite of all.

137˚ was a close second.

 

 

I'm not mad at anyone, I'm just expressing my thoughts about how I think we should answer questions like that.

 I think you just took our comments too literally. There was no demanding. More a surprised concern, atleast on my part. And I never said the above. It is obvious they have had prime rib or they wouldn't have posted on this thread. It is easy to see why someone would use 3-2-1, since well, it's a beef rib. Just as some smoke a Tenderloin, it can be done, its just not really needed.

Flash,
I'm sorry, I made that hard to understand, in my haste. I will try again, so you don't think I'm saying you said something that you didn't say (I would not do that to you).

 

You said that many of us 6 that recommended 3-2-1 obviously never tried the other ways (meaning your way, which you think is the only way, or you wouldn't say "Don't you dare do it 3-2-1").

When I said, "Now you're saying the 6 guys who reported to use 3-2-1 have never had Prime Rib", I meant because you meant we never did it your way, but anyone who has ever had Prime Rib has done it your way.

 

 

 

This is getting too confusing for even me to understand.  biggrin.gif

 

This is really simple;

The best way to end this would be for you to tell me you worded that wrong, and you really didn't mean that the guy should "Not Dare to use 3-2-1 on Beef Ribs", and I'll say, I should not have been so sensitive---I should have known you didn't mean what you said.

 

Later Flash,

Bear

 

PS: We better end this, or people will think we're arguing. I wouldn't argue with you!

I'm just going to take it your an English Major or something like that. Bar-b-que is a Regional process and in those regions it varies greatly. No one way is the answer. I travel enough to know this. I know what I meant and would hope others understood what I meant also. I also get on folks on here that put ribs in a crock pot (with cries of Sacrilege, Sacrilege!!) or do Tenderloins on the Smoker, but in no way am I telling them it is wrong to do it that way. (although it may not be the best way in my view wink.gif) and this is all I meant by my post here. Have a Happy Memorial Day. I'll be hiding out somewhere down by the river, in a bar.

Hmmm, Now I got another one wrong! I thought you'd be hiding out down by the river in that boat I saw you in, on Willie's Smoked Trout thread!!!

I'm retired now. I only fish on the weekdays and avoid the Holiday madness. Though I may venture out to the Suwannee River tomorrow for a cookout.
