Got some beef ribs when we butchered my beef this winter, so it was time to cook them.

Got the mini fired up with its wind block.


Here's the bad rib.


Here's the good rib.


All finished.  Also tried a new style baked tater.


Cooked at 275 with Humphrey's lump and hickory smoke wood.

Took about 4 hours.

Sorry for the bad pics, I am working on getting better.

Man I love my mini.

Thanks for looking.

It all looks good! How did you like the tater? Any oil on it?

Thanks. Just don't slice all the way through the tater.

They look tasty Flash.

My butcher called them short ribs. 


Like I said, never tried them before.

That looks great Cfarmer! I love doing potatoes like that. If you want something a little different, slice an onion about 1/4" and put the slices in between the potato slices. Drizzle with melted butter or olive oil and sprinkle with rub, then cook as usual. I like to wrap in foil for about a half hour in a 350˚ oven to give 'em a head start, then unwrap and put on the smoker for another half hour or so.

Well even with the style I have, the butchers seem to be cutting them shorter and shorter.

That style of short ribs you have is the only way i like mine cut.  They are called cross cut or even flanken style in some spots.  I used to cut them thin in that style for korean ribs called Galbi or Kalbi.  Your's look great!!!  Very tasty!!! Reinhard

I found it on another site, but  take a tater and lay it between 2 wooden spoons on the counter.  The spoons will keep you from cutting all the way through the potato.

I drizzled with melted butter, evoo some rub and seasoning.

Wrapped in foil, took about 3 hours.

You don't have to foil them either.

Add any toppings you want.
