Korean short ribs



In my opinion (and past experience) is this type of rib does best when braised in liquid. I tried smoking them a couple of times and just didn't care for the gamey taste. You might like that though. I cut them into smaller chunks so I can sear them and then cook them low and slow for around 2.5-3 hours on 225F. Add your favorite veggies too (closer to the end though). Since you have so many I would try some low and slow on the smoker, maybe grill some and try the braised method and see which one you like best.
