    So, I had off for the Jewish holiday and I knew it wasn't going to be a nice day and that me and the little girl would be hanging around the house. Haven't done a long smoke in a while or posted on here, so I figured I'd defrost some beef back ribs I've been dying to eat and share the smoke! So here they are in all their meaty glory...


    So for beef I keep it simple and just use SPOG.


    And into the smoker. I start with a chunk of hickory, then after an hour or so when that burns down, I will throw in a chunk of apple and alternate those two woods throughout the smoke. Using my masterbuilt dual fuel with propane. Temp anywhere between 225-275. Sounds like a big range but either way when they are done they are done.


    I'll be sticking a toothpick in them in about 5 hours or so to test for doneness and if I have to taking a bite to see when they're done haha. Be back later!

    Well, I'm about 3 hours in and I decided to take some pics for you all. I don't like to open up the smoker but... For you all I can make an exception. Haha. Here they are bathing in some Hickory smoke...


    I can wait until dinner. The melting beef fat, the SPOG, and the smoke are producing an intoxicating aroma.

    Decided to make some marinara today too... Rainy days have their place!


    Now the daughter goes down for a nap as I get on the treadmill and clear some calories for an extra beef rib or two. Be back later!

    Only thing I could suggest would be to add beef stock to the pan. That way your drippings don't burn and cause nasty stuff. That, and you get gravy base for later :) Looking EXCELLENT so far!

    Well the wind and rain has reeked some havoc... About 6 and half hours in and they are still not where it want them. Took your advice eh1bbq an put some Stock in the pan and covered with foil. Cranked the temp to about 300 so I can get dinner on the table at a decent time. Here they are:

    And the sauce is done. Maybe smoked beef rib baked ziti tomorrow night? If there are leftovers haha.


    I will be back hopefully with good results

    Looking good we have a bunch of ripe tomaters that we'll be processing soon.

    Never had individual beef ribs take more than a few hours. Full racks I do take around 6 using the 3-2-1 method.

    These are definitely being fickle. I did have some temp drops due to the weather and they are very thick so that could be the culprit. They usually take 5-6 hours so could be the temp drops...Going to take a peek now to make sure they are not falling off the bones...

    I have got to try some beef ribs!!!! I have seen some beautiful q-view of beef ribs that have actually caused me to drip drool in my laptop keypad. As I type this my mouth is watering and I can't see any pics.[​IMG]

    Alright... The hour in the foil was the trick...I've said it before and I will say it again. Beef ribs are probably my favorite smoked item. And for your viewing pleasure...




    Just the tenderness I was looking for and the taste was great. SPOG is simple but delicious on beef. And the perfect bite:


    The leftovers for my dad:


    And for me:

    Almost 8 hours fighting wind and rain but totally worth it. Thanks for watching and have a great weekend!
