    Beef Ribs Cooking too Fast


    Currently smoking on Weber Summit Kamado Beef Short Ribs. I Started 1.5 hours ago and i am already at 150F with 2 thermometer !!! I am cooking them for dinner at 7PM.

    Any suggestions to make sure i can eat them later tonight ?

    You didn't say what temp you had on the Weber so maybe back it down some? I treat beef ribs like brisket so I'd wrap them at around 165 to 170 and take them to 195 or 198. This may slow things down. Pray for a stall? Anyway, I think you'll be done long before 7 pm so wrap them in a big towel, place them in a cooler and call it done.


      What temp are you cookin' at? If runnin' on the high side, you can drop the temp to around 225° and slow things down. But you can hold 'em for at least 4 hours - maybe more. Wrap in two layers of foil and put them in a cooler lined with towels. If you have a leave in thermometer, put it in after wrapping. Then, if the temp of the ribs get close to 140°, move them to your oven set at it's lowest temp. Just make sure the ribs stays above 140°.

      Personally. I'd hold off to see if they stall. That can slow down the cookin' for a good while. And I'm thinkin' you should be all right anyway. I'd just let 'em ride for a while to see how fast the temp rises.


        Thanks for the replies ! I am at 163F and looks like i hit the stall. I was smoking at 235F but ill move to 225F.


          If you aren’t setup for a faux cambro you can use your indoor oven set at its lowest setting, probably around 170, and hold them until dinner time.


            Here's my up-to-the-minute shortie cook, and I had a similar thing happen. Relatively fast to 150 or so, then stalling out. If you're running at 225 or so, I think you'll be OK. As they say above, you may need to hold for a bit if you're eating at 7.

              tdimond I was referring to Ol’ Frank and his statement “I’m already at 150 with 2 thermometers”. But, yer nerdiness will suffice also. 🙃

              Hey, all you nerdy types, wherein the graph is the probe tender point?
              Do you have the latest programmable probe that checks for temp, moisture, doneness, and tenderness?

              bbqLuv, probe tender and doneness is part of the art. I'm sure some EE somewhere is cooking up a hygrometer for the moisture.

          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.
