For the Texas BBQ enthusiasts (and butchers) out there,hoping for some help. I am in Canada, we don’t seem to have the same butchering standards as parts of the US when it comes to beef ribs. I ask my butcher for plate ribs or Chuck ribs, but always seem to get something different every time. I have attached pics of some beef ribs I purchased yesterday. They’re massive, oddly cut into 2 bone segments. I’m unsure if these would be considered a plate rib or a Chuck rib or some other cut entirely. There looks to be 2 distinct layers of meat, the top layer is very lean which concerns me. Anyway, I have them smoking now and will happily provide updates, but if any insight would love to hear it. Thanks!

I've never seen them in singles like that. I'd try smoking those baby's up at around 275º until they reached around 203º IT probe tender with a nice bark and some pullback. Be like brisket in a stick, my favorite! RAY

looks like plate ribs just cut into 2 or single bone segments. You can specifically ask for a 4 bone that's usually what we cook or we cook them as singles.
