    So here in the beautiful North Mississppi hill country, pork is cheap and beef not so much. As a result, I smoke a lot more pork these days. Now I love some pig as much as the next guy but every once in a while my Texas roots Demand BEEF!! That’s where I’m at currently. Last Sunday was Brisket and yesterday it was beef ribs. Our selection out here is pretty limited so these are the chinsy ones,  but meatier than most offerings I see around here. These were rubbed with salt and pepper, smoked for 3 hours, then foiled with a little sauce for about 2 1/2. Once I pulled them, I emptied the water pan and through them on bones up for a couple minutes then flipped and sauced for a couple more. For the sauce I did a simple Austinish sauce but then added some savory herbs. It was a perfect fit. All in all it was a perfect  answer to my beef cravings. I’ll probably smoke some chicken next and then get my pig on. Not too many pictures since I shattered my phone on Saturday, but, I got a couple with my daughter’s camera. Hope y’all have a wonderful week!!

    Sadly, we don't get the big plate ribs around here. These were the size of large pork spares. Still delicious though!

    Those look marvelous, Lance.

    We have the same problem with beef prices around here. Sometimes you just have to pry your wallet open and go for it!

    Thank you Disco! You're telling me!! Like I said I do a lot of pork now but sometimes I just gotta have some beef. I did those with some maple syrup mixed into a very unsweet Texas sauce and some savory herbs. Less syrup than with the pork ribs, but just enough to get a good glaze. Thanks for the points!!!

    Hey thanks man! I haven't done beef ribs in about 4 yrs so I was sweating it a little. Mama doesn't like the chinsy amount of meat on what little we can find so just stopped trying. These were a little better but one of these days I have to find some shorts or plates. Maybe when we go back home to Texas for a visit this fall......
  16. I did some myself yesterday
