post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well to save you all the details i'll keep it short. My mothers B-Day is coming up next week and she loves ribs so i figure I'll make her ribs for dinner, was going to head to the store and grab some spare ribs but when I looking in my freezer i found some packages of elk ribs. Has anyone ever tried smoking elk ribs if so can you please help me out here??

Never tried elk ribs but I have made jerky and a fatty a while back. Excellent meat. Not much fat tho, so if ya try 'em, be sure to keep mopped. Might consider an EVOO or bacon grease rub to 'em first.

I tried them on the grill once. They were so tough you couldn't rip a piece of meat off them! I don't bother to save them anymore. There's too much good meat on an elk PDT_Armataz_01_26.gif . Keith

Texas-hunter, i just opened a package up and no the back strap was not attached to the top of the rib. They are set up with like 2 rib bones about 6" long with alot of meat on each side of them. They look really nice with alot of meat on them..

I've not done them, but I have had friends who have and swear that they are great. I would think the usual rib rules would apply, low and slow, and as has been mentioned keep the lack of fat and marbling in mind.
