I'm new here -- hoping you can help me with a cook time question on beef short ribs.
I have some chuck short ribs, already cut into individual ribs (cut along the bone, not across). They are pretty meaty and substantial looking.
I'm going to give them a basic salt & pepper rub, and I want to smoke them at 225 start to finish in my humble Traeger. It's one of those with only three settings, and it runs really consistently at 225 degrees when on "smoke". I've seen some other threads on beef short ribs recommending 3-2-1 or similar strategies where the ribs essentially braise for a couple hours after a couple of hours of smoke. I want to get as good a bark as I can, and make sure all of the fat is well rendered so the ribs are moist and tender.
I watched Franklin's video on beef short ribs, but I don't have the temp control to use his recommendations on timing. I'm guessing I need around 8 hours at 225 to get these done. Anyone have any time recommendations (aside from getting a better smoker)?
