    Rack of Beef Short Ribs

    First time smoking beef short ribs. Ordered a 4-rib plate at my local grocery and asked that they cut it in half across the bone.

    The one on the right is as received. I have trimmed all the fat and silver skin from the one on the right (plenty of fat and connective tissue running through the meat and I wanted to maximize contact with the rub). After trimming the second half, seasoned both with Killer Hogs AP Rub (salt, pepper, garlic) then hit it well with Meathead's Mrs. O'Leary's Cow Crust. Let it dry marinate for about 2 hours before placing on the smoker.

    Super tender and juicy with a flavorful bark and just enough spice from the rub. These bad boys are going into regular rotation at my place!

        I am leaning toward these and chuck as a (arguably) better alternative to brisket. If nothing else, a whole brisket or even the flat is just way to much for my wife and I and it does not seem to hold us as well the next day as the other cuts.

            Maybe we should try doing these with a bacon weave. 😀🥓

            Nice job!
            did you cook to a temperature or just by time?

              Neither! Actually the best way is to cook until the ribs are “probe tender”! See Aaron Franklin’s YouTube video on beef ribs for a demo on what probe tender is.

              As HorseDoctor said, I cooked until probe tender. They were almost there at 5 hours total, but I have them another hour. They probably only needed 15-30 min, but I started working on something else and the hour went by before I noticed.

          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.

          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
          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!

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
          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.

          NK-22-Ck Grill
          Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
