    They are great, especially if you can get some meaty ones. The ones around here don't have much meat on them.

    I really like me some short ribs. I don't know what you have there but I can get long bone shot ribs and I smoke them to temp for they are really thick. I take them to about 200° and they are fall off the bone tender and very good to.

    Do I need to get the membrane off the ribs like pork?

    Mustard and rub or just vegetable oil and rub

    Just did 8 racks of the beef short ribs from matherns $1.99 lb. smoked em using 3-2-1 . fantastic other than i now know why they were on sale .

    1/4" thick slab of gristle running thru the middle of every rack. . ended up carving the meat off the bones to take out the gristle and will use it  in a future dish.

    Ok sweet...and the membrane needs to come off just like pork ribs huh
     
  19. If you can get it off without a fight. It's not critical.
