The locker butchered a certified prime beef. This rack didn’t sell fast enough but I think my son-in-law had it planned all along!
He snagged it and brought it over and said what night is supper!

My favorite seasoning for beef ribs is good ol kosher salt & pepper. Seasoned up the day before and left uncovered till the cook started the next morning.

They were smoked 10 hours at 235 degrees and later the homemade baked beans with home cured bacon on top were added to the smoker.

The baked beans place under the rib plate :emoji_sunglasses:

It was also my daughter’s birthday (married to the butcher) requested ham balls and cheesy hash brown potatoes.

This rack of ribs could be the best beef I’ve ever ate. With all the marbling the beef was very rich and after eating one rib I hit a wall ….. real bad enough was enough.
The rack after 10 hours was at 185 degrees when we partook in the meal. I’ve never smoked prime beef but I wonder if I should have let the IT get higher? Either way it was a pleasure to eat! Here comes a bunch of the main event pics.

That is indeed one of the best looking beef racks I've seen.
Nice to have a butcher in the family; that ranks right up there with a doctor or a mechanic.

Looks fantastic! Those ham balls look bomb too! I do usually take my beef ribs to 200-205 bit each piece is different.

Thanks everyone for the compliments! I knew I should have went closer to 200 degrees and figured 10 hours would be enough but ran out of time.
I’m semi retired now and I help out at the locker three days a week and it does have perks!
I still don’t have this multi quote figured out on here but again thanks and it’s crazy fun being dizzy from the ride

Wow! They look amazing! Going to smoke some this weekend or next weekend. Haven’t done beef ribs often so I’m curious to see how I do

Awesome job! Hard to find beef ribs with that much meat on them from a store! Locker is in Newton? If I remember correctly?
