    Flintstone beef ribs

    Since visiting Black's in Lockhart, Texas a few years ago, big beef ribs are my favorite to do/eat, slightly above brisket and good old pork ribs. My rub was similar to Meathead's Memphis dust with extra cracked black pepper and of course salt. I finished these in 4-1/2 hours to temp of around 192. On my old stick burner they took 6 hours and I wrapped for the last hour. Man these things are just great and fun to eat. I took a pic of the tag to show the price. The small packaged cut short ribs are usually $7-$8 per lb., but I talked the butcher into $4.99.

      Thanks! I was shocked when they were to temp so fast and still crazy tender.

      I just drooled all over my keyboard. I do love beef ribs, and it isn't easy to find good ones in a restaurant out here on the Left Coast. When I get up to speed on smoking I will tackle some.

        They're actually more forgiving than a brisket in that the cook temp isn't a huge concern as long a you stay under 275 and get a meat temp of around 192. And when you pick up one of those monsters in your hands, see the juices flowing, it's like being a kid in a candy store. People with etiquette may want to cut the meat off the bone and slice. But I suggest just manning up and go for a huge bite...like a Flintstone.

        Thanks Pappy! I'm surprised they're not more popular. But if they do become more popular, the price will jump. I'm convinced I'll get that butcher down to $3.99 which would make them a steal. I'm not complaining about $4.99 as they knocked $3 off without putting up a fight.

        Wow. I have to find a butcher around me willing to haggle! I'd pay 4.99/pound with a smile on my face.
