Need help with Dino Bones?

I found some nice looking beef ribs, and thought I'd try making Dino Bones for the first time.  I have a few questions though.  Do they have a membrane that needs removed?  What is the best way to prepare and cook them?  I can't decide if I want to use my MES, or my Charcoal GOSM.  If I use my MES can I crumble a little coal with the wood chips to get a smoke ring?

Thank you,

Jeff

I use the non-business end of a spoon to get a start under membranes and lift a bit off of the meat and bones.  once you have enough lifted, you should be able to grip it by hand and peel it off.

I tend to cook them just like spare ribs.

Actually, you can leave the membrane on.  Blasphemy for pork, though!  After cooking, a steak knife under the membrane and down the bone will pull all the meat of in a clean sweep.

Good luck and good smoking.

Can someone refresh my memory on the 3-2-2 method?  I am planning on doing these tomorrow if it clears up like it suppose to.

It's 3-2-1. The 3 is 3 hours on the grate in the smoker, the 2 is 2 hours wrapped in foil with some liquid on the grate in the smoker, & the 1 is 1 hour back on the grate without foil. The idea is you get smoke flavor in the first 3 hours, then the next 2 hours the ribs steam in the foil & get real tender, and the last hour firms them up a little and adds a little bark.
