I'm not a big fan of the beef ribs due to lack of meat on them usually and just overall 'iffy' results, probably from my lack of patience. Regardless, these caught my eye at $1.99 a pound for 'choice' grade and jumped in the shopping cart so we tried again. Gave them a nice heavy coat of rub after taking the membrane off. Decided they needed a heavy dose of foiling so gave them 3 hours at 250 with apple pellets then foiled with some Coke and sauce for another 3 hours. So, overall, not bad.....not fall off the bone but a OK tug and some very decent meat in spots with sauce on the side for dipping and a roll of paper towels handy for chin drips. If I do this again I'm thinking another hour in the foil for tenderness but that's my opinion only.
