Me and the boy have been looking forward to this cook ever since the throwdown prize package arrived at the front door.

The ribs…. Two racks nicely vac pac’d, this is the last of the Throwdown spoils…..intentionally saved them for last…

Got them all thawed out and prepped for seasoning….. had to break out the food service pan for these babies!

Pretty simple seasoning but it produces a very nice combination of flavors….

I am really looking forward to seeking how the Certified Piedmontese texture compares to “normal” genetic beef ribs which we eat a ton of. Ie wondering how the reduced connective tissue that is part of the CPB genetics will affect flavor and the eating experience…… more to come…. These are sitting covered in the fridge awaiting for a good smoke…..

Looks delicious and I’ll bet the texture is on another level. We used to raise Romangnola beef (cousin to Piedmontese) most excellent texture and flavor definitely a cut above. I’m in for the finish.

I have I hopes SE! I have another mystery box of CPB that will be here next week, my works way of saying thanks for recently recruiting some new key staff!

I miss the days of beef (we had just a couple black angus and jernsey for milk/cream) in the field from my younger days but those Romangnola’s sound tasty too!

Got my mouth watering already!

Yea it’s a one meal day……some call it intermittent fasting…..I call it making room for more ribs for dinner!
I'm in while you tickle your ribs to perfection

David
I’m a tickleing them now….lol
 
Bingo 2 hours 50 mins, these are getting covered and in the house oven to rest at 145 for 40 or so mins……

All rested and ready to slice…… just note the deeper color on them after the rest. The resting helps soften the bark to the perfect texture juiciness!

The slicing……

I don’t know what else to say but after all the beef ribs I have smoked and consumed and these are the two BEST racks of ribs I have ever had!

I’m sitting here conflicted though…….not sure if I should be mad at the throwdowns or happy…..you see I’m hooked now and my whole shopping experience of finding ribs in my honey holes is a bust now!!!!!! That said I can keep a couple of racks in the freezer and have more free time cooking vs shopping…….

Finally. But man, that was worth the wait. Looks killer.
And I understand your dilemma. That Piedmontese meat is priced at a pretty high premium.

After seeing those beautiful ribs. I think I'm going to submit my two week notice on the TD committee. So I can enter and have a chance at winning.

Most excellent job Civil.
