Over the weekend I picked up a nice, thick rack of beef ribs from the butcher shop.
This was my second time attempting Beef Ribs, and they turned out freaking great.
Here's how it went down:
1. Set my WSM for about 250, fueled by Kingsford Competition coals and Oak Wood.
2. Filled the water bowl about half-way. (I'm a fan of using water - controls the temp better.)
3. Used some muscle to yank the membrane off the back, trimmed a tad. Rubbed the ribs in olive oil, then coarse salt/pepper, little bit of garlic powder. That's it.
4. Set them on and let it ride an hour and a half.
5. Spritzed with a water and bourbon mixture, 2x during the cook.
6. They were done pretty fast. In total, about 3 hours, which surprised me. Is that normal?!
7. Let them rest in foil for about 45 minutes.
8. Sliced, served and enjoyed.
Got a decent smoke ring, great bark, moist bites.
Here's the pic.
