    Dino beef ribs

    Vaccuum Sealing in the middle of a rib cook.........when? Should I?

    Hey smokers, my question has to do with partially cooking ribs and then freezing them half way through the process. Previously I have smoked my St.Louis ribs for 3 hrs, then ovened for two, then froze them until I wanted to eat them. When I smoke I smoke a lot at a time and freeze for later...

    If you are looking to smoke some short ribs, I recommend going to SNR and picking up their 3 bone wagyu pack! These were enough to feed 6 people with room for leftovers. Fun smoke!

    New to beef ribs - what's your favorite beef rib rub?

    I've got some beef ribs and wondering about what rub to use. I haven't smoked beef ribs before so this is new territory for me. I've been using Jeff's Original and Texas Style rubs on some recent smokes and like both of them. I was wondering if I should lean towards the original "since they're...

    First smoked ribs off the offset smoker

    As a late birthday present to myself, I bought a Char-Griller Texas Trio. Propane grill, charcoal grill, offset smoker. I am really happy with it because of its flexibility. The grate (quoted as 548sq in) is plenty big enough for 2 entire racks of spare ribs to lie flat. How I prepared the...

    Ribs are a bit too fall off the bone

    Hello folks, I recently smoked up 3 racks of baby back and they turned out great. I did however want them to hang on the bone a bit more. They were sliding right off and I wasn’t able to cut them individually. By the way I use a Traeger 22 Pellet Grill. Again, the ribs were great, meat was...

    Post smoke pellicle

    So I smoked my ribs for 6 hours, got a great smoke ring, no pellicle formed, I fixed the issue and it won't happen again. My question is this- Can a pellicle form @ 250° in a standard oven? (I know I can get it to form if I throw it back on the grill, but I was hoping to just do this the easy...
