    Now I know what FLANKEN RIBS are

    When I got my monthly box from Sonrise Ranch and saw something called Flanken Ribs, I had no idea. But I learned fast. Apparently a butcher named Flanken got drunk and cut the ribs the wrong way. (I made that up.)

    I seasoned with Worcestershire, salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, sugar, and olive oil. About 8 minutes per side direct heat over lump charcoal on the PK.

    As I was prepping, I got the message that my family would be home later and was eating out. The chimney was already lit. So I had all 6 flankens myself standing at the cutting board, washed down with Deschutes Inversion IPA. Great start to the weekend.

        Very first item I sought help with on this site was flanken ribs. I had no clue how to prepare them. Now they are our favorite fast dinner item. Started using the Lodge grill to grill them instead of the gasser, and boy have they become even tastier.
        Good job.

          Love those ribs as an appetizer. I prepare them about the same you did, cumin, garlic and seasoning salt, then cook hot and fast. They come out chewy, but that works with a thin cut of meat. I have tried doing low and slow but don’t like the result as well.

              I may differ here and i do not like well done meat but this cut I take to well done. I picked these up @ local Phillipine Butcher and they are outstanding. Click image for larger version

                I buy those ribs already marinated at the Korean market. Get some vegy sides, kimchi and make some rice and you've got Korean BBQ..... Delicious. And your ribs look good too!!

                  Good job.
                  Yes, I'll be doing them on the Lodge next time. For my first try, I wasn't sure if I would need a hot and cool side, so I used the PK. The PK is awesome, but the SMG was made for this kind of cooking and with a third as much charcoal.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
