On to the RT 1250 at my default 265 degree cook. They will smoke for 3 hours then get rested while covered.

Damn, those look killer!!!

For sure summer is here in CA, it was 82* in my house until 3:30 AM.
I'm already sick of the heat, we've had several days in the high 90's and a few in the 100rds. Yuck!!!

The only thing I hate worse than being cold, is being hot.
At least when I'm cold I can throw another log on the fire. When it's hot it cost us big bucks to run the AC, but we run it until the sun goes down, than turn on fans.
Heat makes me feel sick, I guess allthe yrs of working outside in the heat tore up my internal thermostat.
Iget heat stroke at the drop of a hat these days. Fun, fun ,fun!!!

Single meal day!?!?!? Oh man, I'd been drooling like Pavlogs dog smelling those cooking. And that plate just screams summer eating!

That's one fine plate of chow. I gotta dig out the last pack of beef ribs from the freezer.
 
I could eat that whole rack for a single meal!..........Nice job!
 
That looks great. Nice work 👍
many thanks JL!
Looks great! Meaty back ribs for sure
Thanks jcam! I can say I was full afterwards!
Beautiful plate Civil and those ribs look mighty tender!

Keith
Thaks Keith. We have found the covered resting is a money maker for making them tender!

Thanks fork and we are pretty lucky as even if we hit the 90s in the day we still see the 50s 60s at night. By the way it can get cold enough that putting a bigger or second coat just isn't enough....and then the skin feels hot because of the frost bite happeing.....

Single meal day.....some call it intermittent fast..... but for me its I save all my stomach for the feast! I can say Pavloags dog could have been in the back seat for sure!

Much appreciated mr w! They are the perfect summer bbq for our house!

Many thanks BED! I have tried consuming a whole rack in one sitting....LOL I would advise on having leftovers.....there was a price for the try!
You showed great restraint! Looks awesome!
thanks tpc! I'm not sure how much restraint as I did consume the whole pic worth!

Beef ribs can be hard to find, but worth the effort. It's prime rib on the bone...don't overcook.
 
I love beef ribs! Looks like you did a great job.
Thanks qbrett! These are a staple at our house!
Great looking ribs Civil! Looks like a fine meal to sit down to!!
Many thanks Redi! It was a nice way to celebrate the first real warm days.

We are lucky because they are a commonly stocked shelf item, but we do live in the heart of beef country….. many do them rare to mid rare (very rich), however, they have lots of connective tissue and fat so they can handle a long cook and a finished INT high enough to render the fat and to soften them. I came to this conclusion after doing an experiment were I cooked many racks (tested many to get repeatability) at various temps and finished INTs over a 3 month period…. Went through about 35 racks….. Ie the resultant recipe was 3 hours at 265 then a foil covered hold at 145 for 40–60 mins….

Just a couple examples of previous posts….

Great work my friend! WOW! Quite jealous. Sadly I have had to cut back on some of my faves…obvious reasons probably.
 
You did it again. Looks really good. And grilled pineapple too.
Thanks ed! Oh yes I did it again! And in the pineapple too……just love that stuff grilled up!

Thanks sandy! That’s why I do single meal days and then hike and walk 6-10 miles a week…..need to get back up to the 12-16 and then 20 by season again!
You done good, Civil!!
Many thanks GS!
