Questions about beef back ribs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I live in Mississippi and really haven't been able to find any beef back ribs with meat on them.  I bought two racks yesterday and the way that they were packaged I couldn't tell that most of the meat was dug out between the bones as well as not much left on the side either.  They were 3.99 a pound and I wound up with 40 dollars worth of bones that might have 2 pounds of meat on them.  I was wondering if anyone has ever looked at buying a bone in prime rib and removing the bones yourself and leaving a decent amount on the bones.  I am determined to get my hands on some meaty beef back ribs.  I can always use the rest of the prime rib later.  Is this a crazy idea or what?  Anybody know of an on line outlet for them?

Yes that seems like the only way to get beef ribs with plenty of meat on them.  Here is a thread from Bearcarver who does it that way.  I've bought and smoked the ones from Walmart and they certainly lack a good amount of meat.

Yes Bears way is the only way to get really meaty ribs. You can cut the bones off & leave a lot of meat on them, then tie them back on the roast & smoke it that way. Then save the bones for another day & just put them on the grill for a few minutes to get a good sear on them.

Thanks for the feed back guys.  I hate to think what it might cost me to buy a prime rib with 8 or 10 bones to cut off but I think that is what I will do.  I see that Bear got his for 4.99 a pound.  I hope that I can be that lucky.............
