I have two sons the youngest cane to visit on Sunday. He usually comes once a week, he only lives across the lake in Seattle. He usually requests pasta sauce, and something to put it on, he didn't request this time so I cooked what I wanted. Beef ribs with hickory smoke.

My oldest son visited last night, he doesn't visit that often. He too lives just across the lake, who knows why he doesn't want food free food. Since he doesn't come often I made a special dinner, plate ribs. These turned out to be the best I have made, they were truly remarkable, cooked on mesquite wood.

The small rack pulled at 195° and the larger one, the one we ate, was pulled at 200°.

We only ate one of the plate ribs, and the other will be used to make some brisket pizza this weekend.

I would cross the lake on a canoe for that!

PS do these look familiar to you?

both of them look great, congrats!
Thanks appreciate it.
Nice!!
I'll take a couple of those ribs over pasta every time!
I've made pasta sauce for them both for over 15 years. It is something everyone looks forward to. Thanks for your confidence.
Both of those look great.
Thanks, I liked them both too, can't wait to do it again.
I could definitely make a meal off either...or both, NICE, and great to have family over to enjoy...
Thanks, they were both great, and you're correct, family was better.
Yes sir bow this look great and I'm always looking for free plate rib meal 😅
It would be a long drive for dinner, we would welcome you for sure. Thanks

Thanks, appreciate your comment. Only problem with those lid's is we have to go to I 90 to cross the lake. They are now working on the Seattle side.
Outstanding job on those beef ribs bud!
Thanks, appreciate you

Very nice job on the ribs, both sets. Sometimes it's fun to be able to cook what you want versus having to cater to somebody. I know I'd certainly not turn down either of those.

Heck, I'd d it in a paddle board...and my sense of balance is terrible these days. I'd take the chance though. BTW, great pics!!

Robert the canoe thing is kind of an inside joke.....the bridge in the pic I posted above is actually a “floating bridge”.....ie a canoe of concrete ( is actually a series of concrete pontoons linked together).... the one above is a recently new one but the old one was narly to cross in a wind storm! It would bounce all over the place and you would get water spray all over..... the original attempt actually sunk in construction during a storm back in the day....
