Smoked Beef Prime Rib Dinos (With extra Meat)


These are for sure my favorite Ribs!!

I have always hated the way they remove nearly every little scrap of meat from the Beef Ribs before they sell them to us.

So This Is What I Do:
When I removed the bones from all of my Prime Ribs, I left about an extra inch of meat on the bone side of the cut, so I could have some Awesome Meaty Ribs. I’ve been doing that with all of my Prime Rib Roasts for awhile now.
I vacuum packed them individually, and kept them together in my meat freezer, so they’re easy to find.
This time I decided to Smoke 4 of the 9 Rib sections I had in the Freezer. Each Section has 2 bones.
These 4 sections weighed in at 7 pounds total. That’s nearly 2 pounds for each 2 bone Rib Section!!

Day #1 (Prepping Ribs):
Remove from Vacuum packs, Rinse, Pat Dry, apply Lea & Perrins Bold Steak Sauce.
Then coat with Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Onion Powder.
Put all the pieces in a big bowl, cover it with plastic wrap & put it in the fridge over night.


Day #2 (Smoking Day):
9:30AM——————-Preheat MES 40 to 230°. Also Fill 1 1/2 Rows of AMNPS with Hickory Pellets, and light one end.
10:00AM——————Place all Rib sections on one MES 40 Grill Rack.
10:00AM——————Put full rack of Ribs on second position in MES 40.
10:30AM——————Place smoking AMNPS on the left end of the bottom rack of my MES 40.
1:00 PM——————Stack all Ribs in foil pan, add Foil Mixture*, cover with Foil, and return to second position in smoker.
1:00 PM——————Reset Heat to 240°.
3:50 PM——————Shut MES 40 down, and remove Pan of Ribs from Smoker, and take to kitchen.
4:00 PM——————Uncover, Separate Ribs individually, plate, take pics, add sides, take pics, Sit down & Eat.

Just for the heck of it, I checked the IT when I got them inside. They were all between 198° and 205°. None of them were “Fall-off-the-bone”.
These Ribs were very Tender, just like the Prime Ribs they came from.

* Foil Mixture:
6 ounces of Apple Juice.
2 ounces of Worcestershire “Original”.
2 ounces of Ken’s Honey Teriyaki Marinade.
Mix well——Then heat to between 150° and 200° before adding to Foil Package.


The adding of the extra 1” of Meat makes these Ribs Totally Awesome!!

Hope You All Enjoy My Pictures.

Thanks for looking,
Bear

Funny, I just found a set of these in the freezer.  I thought I should cook these up.

I think you just pushed me to do it.

Those look great - I have the bones from the 2 PR's I did this past weekend sitting in the freezer.  Bookmarked this just in case.
 
 
I typically cut my own but to date have always let the bone on the steaks.  Re-thinking that strategy now!
I like my Prime Ribs at about Med-Rare, but I like the fatty area around the bones done a lot more. Separating them like this allows me to do that.

Before I had a Smoker, I used to cut the bones off & grill them until real hot & Bubbly.

NICE! Now if we could only get Giant to cut them like that!!!!....JJ
 
Bear they look great,I don't buy big enough PR to bother doing them myself.Have a store in my area has some nice looking ones. Points

Those look amazing Bear!  I learned that trick from you, just to buy the prime ribs whole and save the ribs for another smoke.  I'm lucky enough that some of the stores around here that make boneless rib eyes to sell, sell the ribs with a good amount of meat on them for 1.99-2.99 per pound.  POINTS!!

Thanks Jimmy!!

LOL---They'll cut them any way you want, as long as you pay the full Choice Standing Rib price.

Bear
