    Beef ribs, how long to dry brine?

    How long is too long to rub beef ribs in advance?

    I do mine for about 12-18 hours. Seems to work out great every time. I’m sure others will have varying methods. I look forward to those.

      That's about what I do. Rub them some time in the evening, put them on in the morning.

    I usually do overnight but up to 2 days if stuff pops up. For pastrami I do 2 days as part of the recipe.

    Beyond that, I don’t think there are any additional benefits.

      OK cool. I was just worried the extra day might be harmful. Thanks!

        Whatever you do, don't rub 'em the wrong way.

            That works to when I forget to rub them the night before.

          Overnight always works for me. I tend to treat Beef ribs just like I would a brisket. Same rub, cook time, prep and all. The only exception is that I like to trim all the fat off the beef ribs. They are basically like the brisket point in that they have tons of inter muscular fat in them.

            Trim the fat rather than render it out during the cook!?
            Have you not read the book, "The Joy of Grill Cleaning"?

            Trim the surface fat off. Letting it render off leaves the sinew and residual fat on the surface of the meat. The rendering of the fat does not enter the meat or anything like that. It just renders out and runs into your drip pan. Generally, people will trim chunks of fat off when they are eating the meat.......there goes all your rub and smoke. Of course I leave a very thin layer, cause I like it fatty. But I make sure I trim it up well. bbqLuv

            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.

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
