    Beef Dino Ribs (Heavy on Meat)

    These Beef Dinos are my All-Time Favorite Ribs!!

    So This Is What I Do to get Ribs with a lot of meat on them:
    I buy my Prime Ribs in 5 to 6 pound hunks, when on sale (usually Christmas Week).
    When I removed the bones from all of my Prime Ribs, I left about an extra inch of meat on the bone side of the cut, so I could have some Awesome Meaty Ribs. I’ve been doing that with all of my Prime Rib Roasts for years now.
    I vacuum packed them in 2 Rib Pairs, and kept them together in my meat freezer, so they’re easy to find.
    This time I’m Smoking the last 5 of the 9 Rib sections I had in the Freezer. Each Section has 2 bones.
    These 5 sections weighed in at nearly 9 pounds total. That’s nearly 2 pounds for each 2 bone Rib Section!!

    Day #1 (Prepping Ribs):
    Remove from Vacuum packs, Rinse, Pat Dry, apply Lea & Perrins Bold Steak Sauce.*
    Then coat with Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Onion Powder.
    Put all the pieces in a big bowl, cover it with plastic wrap & put it in the fridge over night.

    Day #2 (Smoking Day):
    9:20AM——————-Preheat MES 40 to 230°. Also Fill 1 1/2 Rows of AMNS with Hickory Dust, and light one end.
    10:00AM——————Place all Rib sections on two MES 40 Grill Racks.
    10:00AM——————Put 3 Pairs of Ribs on second position in MES 40, and 2 Pairs on top Rack.
    10:30AM——————Place smoking AMNS on the right end of the bottom rack of my MES 40.
    1:00 PM——————Stack all Ribs in foil pan, add Foil Mixture*, cover with Foil, and return to second position in smoker.
    1:00 PM——————Reset Heat to 240°.
    3:45 PM——————Shut MES 40 down, and remove Pan of Ribs from Smoker, and take to kitchen.
    3:55 PM——————Uncover, Separate Ribs individually, plate, take pics, add sides, take pics, Sit down & Eat.

    Just for the heck of it, I checked the IT when I got them inside. They were all between 195° and 204°. None of them were “Fall-off-the-bone”.
    These Ribs were very Tender, just like the Prime Ribs they came from.

    * Foil Mixture:
    6 ounces of Apple Juice.
    2 ounces of Worcestershire “Original”.
    2 ounces of Lawry’s Teriyaki Marinade.
    Mix well——Then heat to between 150° and 200° before adding to Foil Package.

    The adding of the extra 1” of Meat makes these Ribs Really Awesome!!

    Hope You All Enjoy My Pictures.

    Thank You!!

    That's my main objective, when I do my Posts.

    Bear - always love your posts and advice. Again you have outdone yourself with these Dino Ribs. They are bigger than most prime ribs I find (ha, ha) and they look like you could pick on those bones all day..............

    I have your listing of recipes bookmarked on my computer and run to the over and over as I tweak my meals.

    Thanx again for your help and posts.............

    Holy crap those are sexy. Prime rib doesn't fly at my house due to the fat content. Even steaks are chosen with the utmost care and eagle eye
