    Barrister DEW's Best BBQ Beefribs (short) - Version #1

    The title is a nod to Huskee.

    They went on the smoker at 12:46pm. The smoker is set to 260°F to compensate a little for temp swings and the ambient cold here. Smoking over Jack Daniels Barrel Oak chips. I plan to add wood every hour until I wrap:

      Keep on keepin on! Looks great so far. Gonna try one with Tatonka Dust this weekend myself!




          Out of the stall yet? Can't wait to see how this turns out.


            Just about, I think. Following the APL recipe, I just wrapped, meat side down on top of a mixture of honey, beef base, water, brown sugar, butter and water. I took the probe out to wrap it better. I also boosted the heat to 275°F and set the timer for 45 min. When I unwrap and put them back in, I will reinsert the Mav probe.


              I unwrapped after 45 mins with the IT at about 183°F. The unwrapping took some time and it's cold out. After adding a bit more rub, per the recipe, and putting them back in unwrapped, the IT dropped to 181°F and stayed there for quite awhile. It's now up to 196°F and I added some APL BBQ sauce to the bottom. In 20 mins I will flip, sauce the meat side and let her go until it reaches 203°F. Per the recipe, cooker still at 275°F.

              Here is a pic (a little hazy) from when I unwrapped. Nice pull-back:

              Thats nice lookin stuff DEW


                That's a good lookin meal (so far anyways).


                  So, pix a bit later. The pros: They were tender. They were meaty and filling (one per person was plenty). Good bark. Decent rub. The sauce was very complimentary. DEW The Cons: They were dry-ish. They must have been a tad over-cooked. I think I know why (thermometer probe mishap) and I will correct it the next time.


                    OK, here are the pix:

                      FWIW I treat beef ribs like brisket, wrap at or shortly into the stall, take to 200ish, hold in a faux cambro an hour or three, eat. They don't dry out this way. Yours look great and I bet they tasted great. In case you're lookign for a different way next time I thought I'd share... I need to venture down to VA and have some ribs with you and fish.... then the next day head to Pit Boss' place and taste one of his legendary ribeyes. Yep, this is what I need to do.

                        Yeah. I was following the Adam Perry Lang recipe and I wanted to sauce them, which I did. After I took them out of the wrap and put the temp probe back in, I wasn't careful and ended up with the tip touching one of the bones. I am pretty sure that screwed with my Mav IT readings and led to them being a little overdone. They weren't terrible at all, they just weren't "great", which I was hoping for. Neither the GF nor I had any trouble finishing ours.

                      Those look pretty good! I think you just overcooked them a bit. If the temps went over 205*F, then you for sure did.

                      Huskee door's always open! Come on in.


                        Well, the presentation was great. The only way I know they were a bit dry was because you said so. As Dave said that 203*F is a magical number.

                        Between you and Eugene I gotta go get some beef ribs. I didn't hurt that the last ones I fixed the wife really raved about.


                          Those look mighty tasty to me.

                          Someone recently gave me some grass fed short ribs, but they are all individual bones (already cut). Do you guys think they would still smoke well? or should I just be safe and braise them?

                          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                          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.
