    Beef Ribs

    Beef Ribs on the PBC!
    Attached Files

    YES YES YES!! How long did those cook for? I'll take beef ribs over brisket or pork ribs any day.
    Mine take 2 - 2 1/2 hours.


      I've never done beef ribs. Looks like I have next weekends menu confirmed.


        Chris, look for beef short ribs. Some of the other ribs got no meat on them, just bone.


          First time making them. They were surprisingly similar to brisket. Mine took 7hrs to get to 203F. Hit a stall and wrapped at 170-180. Did u cut yours up first?


            7 hours in the PBC?

            I buy a whole rack and ask the butcher to cut it lengthwise. I don't wrap mine

            so they hang like this

            They come out like this

              Lookin good!

            I wish my beef ribs turned out like that. Wife can't eat pork so I try beef ribs but they never seem to turn out as good. Will just have to keep trying I guess.

              Get used to it. Ernest can take a literal pile of crap out the pasture and make it look like Prime Rib.

              You go Ernest!! Its like at Baby's first Birthday in Hawaii, Big Luau. If it looks good, smells good, taste good, do not ask what it is as you most likely will not like the answer you will get!! Might even have to power puke. So Brenda and I learned that quickly and we would fool ourselves thinking it was beef, pork, or chicken. But, they made some fantastic dishes.

            I did beef spares back in June, here's a pic of them.
            I'm doing them again this Weds. They are so good. If you remove the membrane like on pork ribs, and treat them like brisket (including a faux cambro hold) they're amazing.

              I keep the membrane on when PBCing short ribs. They got more meat and tend to be heavier than pig ribs. Helps to keep them intact and keep some of the juices in. It's easy to remove after they're cooked.

                Why, because of thinner meat on spares, would you remove the membrane? I'm just curious

                It's not because of the thinner meat, it's just helpful to do it like you would on pork ribs. Makes easier eating later. Beef spare ribs don't have as thick of a knob of meat as shorties.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
