    Welcome to the Pit from Dallas!


      Welcome from Maryland. You already know this but I’ll chime in with to be sure to dry brine first and don’t be afraid of cooking them at higher temperatures. I like smoking them at 275.

          I do beef ribs a lot. Ditto on dry brining. Very key. I cook at about 250. Patience! You’re looking at a fairly long cook. Mine go 8-10 hes depending on how thick they are. I choose to not wrap but I baste with Stubb’s Moppin’ Sauce every hour as an alternative. Works every time.

                    Welcome to The Pit Chris. Most here cook beef ribs somewhere between 225° and 275°, some even go higher, so don't sweat the temp as long as it is in that range. The higher the temp, the faster the cook will be, and you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between ribs cooked at 225° and 275°.

                    I cook 'em around 275° after an overnight brine - 48 hours if I have the time, (and remember to do it). I add pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder when I put them on the grill. I let them go until they are probe tender and hold them in an insulated cooler until time to eat. I prefer an hour or two minimum, but 3 or 4 hours is perfectly fine.

                              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.

Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
