Didn't take a lot of pics but did beef ribs for the first time today. I bought a half a beef from my buddy and got 10 packs of short ribs, 5 in each pack. Wife picked up a rack of back ribs so did them side by side. I rubbed with olive oil, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder, course ground pepper, and white pepper. Smoked for 2.5 hrs with apple at 240. For foiling I took 2 cups water, 2 beef bouillon cubes, Tbls of Worcestershire, diced red onion, and dash of salt and pepper. Foiled for 1.45 hrs at 250. Then back on for half hr with no smoke, I nibbled on one after foiling and smoke was very apparent so didn't want to over do it. Then I himmed and hawd over to sauce or not. But kids said sauce so 2 light coats of sweet baby rays. About to dig in, I'll let you'd know if it was a success or failure.
