Finally made this to my liking.

Forgot the first couple pics. Seasoned with SPG and on the mini with kbb and hickory.

This pic was about a hour in at 235 smoker temp.



First time braising them. That's what people here told me I needed to do.

In a pan with lagar beer and foiled.





2 and a half hours foiled then back on the smoker .



Not much meat on these.



Bones pulled right out.



Small bites.



Finally they were very tender and we enjoyed the little things.

I will be doing more of these at one time to make a meal.

Nice job! It seems good beef ribs need to be custom cut by a butcher. Most retail beef ribs are nothing more than soup bones. I finally found some beef ribs worth cooking through a local restaurant supply house. They could be meatier but much better than anything I have purchased through local grocers. I envy those who get the big dino bones with a pound of meat on each bone!


Something special happens to beef on a low and slow smoker

When I sent my beef to be butchered, I told him I wanted some beef ribs. This is what he cut for me.
