    I melted 1/2 a stick of butter added some worchestershire and garlic powder in a pan. I rub some on the ribs and then coated with rub.

    After two hours I mopped them down with the butter mix every hour.

    And here they are 5 hours later.

    Click on the pics.........they get bigger. LOL

    Yeah Debi you can see where I trimmed the fat in the first pic. I just ate and they had a great flavor but are a little tough, not bad but not falling off the bone.

    RIP, any idea why they are not as tender as you wanted? Would you change anything in the process? They looked gret though...

    When I do them again I may try and foil them about 2 hours and then unfoil for the last 1 or 2.

    How was the color of the meat? Still some pink or fully cooked. I still hold my beef ribs to 3 1/2 to 4 hours max.
    Remember to look for that Mojo next time you are in the store. Still look good though [​IMG]

    Homebrew- No I don't have an extra bedroom but come on anyway we'll find a place for you, maybe the smoke shed, sure smells good in there.

    Flash- They were still pink thats the way I like my beef. And I will look for the Mojo today, Thanks.

    Minn.Bill- Yes you can 3-2-1 the beef ribs you just have to adjust the time, look for the meat to pull back from the bone and foil until the last hour or so.

    Goat- No we didn't eat them all, that was alot of ribs. If you send me your address I will email them to you. LOL

    Thanks to everyone here for sharing info, thats what makes this the best site on the net.

    I do expect alittle more chew out of beef ribs anyway. I like them that way. Still have not done a 3-2-1 style yet though. I was happy enough with them setting in an aluminum pan with alittle mojo. And of course Scooter the dog loves the fact he gets more meat on the beef bones than he ever see on the pork ones [​IMG]

    we do more beef here than pork,..Ive started boiling my ribs to tender them up.
    I use a big stainless seafood pot and bring the water to a boil then add the ribs. it only takes about 7 to 10 minutes of boiling. I also add 2 tblsp of smoked sea salt and 2 tblsp of olive oil to the water.
    I then let em cool,...apply my rubs and place on the smoker standing up tent or tee-pee style.

    Man oh man,..they sure come out tender,....not like fall off the bone pork,..but so much better,..still has a little body to it when you chew,..lets ya know you are eating sumthin!

    I dont know,..give it a try see if it works for you![​IMG]
