wanted a rack of plate short ribs, got single ribs instead

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am having people over tomorrow, and i ordered 8 lbs of beef plate ribs to throw on the smoker. I asked for the cuts to have the full 3 ribs each if possible. It turned out, this was not possible. Each rib is cut separately.

 

They are huge, but still i was anticipating doing racks and not individual ribs. Are there any pitfalls I need to watch out for smoking these? does it drastically reduce my smoking time? should i smash them together on the grate, or leave them separate? put rub on all sides, or just the sides that wouldve been exposed to the smoke if they hadnt been cut like this?

 

Thanks. I am in foreign territory here.

Here is my adventure with Single Beef Ribs. At 225 they were in 6 hours and although cooked, needed to be more tender. Go longer for more tender or Foil with Beef Broth or other for an hour or so...JJ
