OK so I have my MES back up and running after element replacement and its time for another first attempt, two racks of beef short ribs.
My issue is that vary in thickness by about an inch. One is around 2" the other almost 3.5". I planned on putting the large one on for about 2 hours before the smaller one just to try to get them done at the same time. My worry is the smoke phase as that will screw that up. Should I put them both in at the same time for the first three hours. or smoke the whole time? These are my last two from the 1/4 cow I bought so I didn't have the ability to have a butcher give me an even set.
Overall plan is temp at 225
Mustard smear then rub a couple hours before cooking
Cook until int temp at 160 then foil with some apple juice until 200
I am guessing the thinner slab will be about 5 hours, the larger about 7 but that is from what I read as I have no first hand experience with this cut.
Thank you in advance!
