    Beef back ribs

    So I was in Walmart minding my own business, looking to buy Plugra butter for my Ghee.
    I passed by the meat section and saw these beef back ribs.

    Fast forward and hour later, I pulled out the last PBC beef and game rub, had about a tablespoon left. Rubbed the ribs with peanut oil and Worcestershire (SP) sauce.

    Fired up the PBC using Kingsford competition charcoal. Hang the ribs at 6:57 PM. I said to hell with gadgets, let's see how much of a power cooker this thing is.

    Opened a brew and a little cognac, catch up on some work

    Decided to check on the beef at 9 PM and it registered 177 degrees on my meat thermometer.

    A tooth pick went through it like a hot knife into room temp butter. A few spots were slightly stubborn so I gave it another 20 minutes.

    Here ready to cut

    These were some of the best beef ribs I've ever cooked. Tender, juicy. I used one small chunk of Cherry wood.

    No foiling, spritzing or monitoring temps. Keep in mind I have been tuning the PBC to my liking.
    I have never followed the manual.

    Right on man, when I cooked beef back ribs I said the same thing- some of the best I've ever cooked. Beef ribs are a welcome change from pork, not that they're better, just a welcome change. Well, honestly I'm leaning toward the side that likes beef ribs better. Just leaning though, not sure.

      Let's be honest, beef ribs are better than pork ribs.

    looking good Ernest


      Thats amazingly good looking!


        Just awesome, need to get me some beef ribs!


          I want to try them too, but they are $6.50/lb around here. Can get strip steaks on sale at the same price!

            I hear ya.
            Reason I love beef ribs is they taste better than brisket and I don't have to mess with cooking a whole packer.

            Ernest, after looking at your pictures again, I think I might have to fork over the $. Got to try those ribs.

            You won't be disappointed. I just had folks over and they specifically asked for beef ribs.

          Look great! I just made short ribs for the first time and I like them a bit better, like steaks that come on their own little plate.

            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.
