    So that's what was on the label. Purchased at Sams. As you can see in the photo they are well marbled. Says Certified Angus Choice. So I buy a pack. Each slice is about 7 to 8 inches long, 2 inches wide and about 5/8 inch think. Pretty thin by most standards but each slice has about 3 bones in it. Package has nine of these slabls so I cook 5 and freeze 4. Never seen anything like these but they look good with that bone & all that marbling. So I coat them with a generous amount of Meat Church Holy Gospel seasoning and put them in the Yoder with Cooking Pellets Perfect Mix pellets. The aroma of these pellets is really nice. Fills my whole barn with this great wood smell when I cook with them. Not having any idea how to cook this cut I wing in. Start with 1 hour @ 220. After the 1st hour I rotate the slabs of meet and crank up the Yoder to 250 and let it cook for another 30 minutes. Another rotation after checking temps, then up to 275 for the next 30 minutes. At this point They've reached a temp of 160 to 180 depending on where I checked and where they are in the cooker so I put them all in a foil pain and cover them with foil and crank up the Yoder to 300 for 30 more minutes. That was 2 1/2 hour total and then they are removed and rest for 30 more minutes. Folks, we were blown away. The Meat Church Holy Gospel was great and the meat was succulent! So easy and so good. These will be a staple at our house moving forward due to their taste and ease of cooking.

    TMK, Nice job on those ribs and nice smoke ring.
  7. Nice looking ribs Tex. Those are the flanken cut short ribs. I usually do Korean-style short ribs with that cut, cooking them for a few minutes on each side on a very hot grill. I will have to try your method.

    Thanks everyone for the replies and likes. Finding something to post here that's unique and helpful to others becomes a challenge with all the great cooks in this group. I will say this, since I've joined this group my success rate on cooking & smoking in general has really improved. Positive Peeps & good food.

    I had a hunch these were cut in this way for a specific reason but this Redneck didn't know what that was so when in doubt, in the Yoder..... Glad they turned out so good.

    I love those!! But here they are big money, cost is almost $2.11 for one slice in a package of 5 slices.

    Yours look great.........guess i am going to have to bite the bullet and buy some.
