I am posting this as a warning to anyone that in new to smoking meat. I had never smoked full bone beef ribs before. I had braised short-ribs and love those so why not full ribs. Watched a ton of videos and then went for it. S and P, a little garlic, and then onto the smoker. After 7 hours, and a 205 internal temp, I took them off. Rested for an hour and then time to eat. Upon my first bite, I new that my rib purchase was a mistake. There was nothing wrong with the ribs just the flavor of beef ribs was not up my ally. Lesson learned, I should have purchased a couple short ribs, to experiment with and would have saved $50.
