So I got a very little bit of what is labeled as "Beef Short Ribs" and I am just not sure how to smoke these. I've been searching and searching and see folks who use a variation of the 3-2-1 method, then there are folks who just cook them until medium (like a steak.)
I don't want to over cook these guys but I don't want them under cooked and I'm trying to figure out a time frame. It's noon where I am now and dinner will be at 7pm. If I am going to be doing the 3-2-1 method then I need to get my smoker going and stable so I can have the ribs on by 1pm or so for 6 hours of cooking. The thing about that is these ribs are not that big and I'm concerned as 6 hrs seems like a long time for these things.
I am also going to be putting some chicken thighs & legs on with these but I'm also struggling on how much time to plan for those.
Any help would be appreciated.
