    Smoked some beef short ribs I picked up on sale. First time for these. I sprinkled on a bit of Cowtown Sweet Spot rub and smoked them on the GOSM at 250°F for 3 hours with hickory. Basted them with Head Country Sauce after pulling them off the smoker. These are good eats!
    First pic is the ribs just off the smoker, second is the ribs basted with Head Country Sauce, third is the ribs ready to serve.

    Mike do you think that shorts, spares and backs are all from the same cut, just trimmed diferently? I get that impression from my butcher and it might account for the different names I see pasted on the same looking cuts of beef over time.

    Yes, you would think that, but I see Short Ribs, spare ribs, beef backed ribs all the time and they are ALL beef.
    Will check out the link, thanks

    I suppose that is just one of those regional differences. Having lived various places I know each move required a bit of getting used to the things we were used to being sometimes called other things. [​IMG]
