    Beef Ribs - Pan or Not

    I recently got some beef ribs from Creekstone Farms. Have only cooked beef ribs once and that was low and slow using the Kettle/SnS. Recently, I have seen folks talking about cooking beef ribs in a pan. What are the advantages/disadvantages? The ones in the Kettle/SnS were very good but I am always willing to try another approach if results are even better. Thanks for your help.

    What is the argument for doing them in a pan in the first place? I can perhaps see putting a drip pan under them full of veggies or a dutch oven full of chili to catch the rendered fat, but I don't see what putting them in a pan buys you.

      Bone in pot roast?

      I may be missing something but bone-in pot roast != beef ribs.

      I think my point was bone in pot roast is what doing beef ribs in a pan buys you.

    I threw in the towel on Beef Ribs.
    My wife pressure cooks them in an hour, and crisps them under the broiler.
    Excellent.

      My old mom used to do something similar with a Crock Pot. Those were some dang good ribs, just not as good as the smokey kind, imo

        I treat them like little brisket candy bars. Cook exactly as you would a brisket, they're just smaller and much quicker.

        Currently cooking in the Kettle/SnS without a pan. Just a pan below to catch drippings. Dry brined overnight and then coated with BBBR. Spritzing hourly with beef broth with a TBS Soy and TBS of Worchestershire added. Will post pictures later.

        Here is the fireboard graph. Started with B&B briquettes. Set initial temp to 240 knowing temp would drop when I put the cold meat in. Kettle recovered in less than 20 minutes and ran pretty steady. Then dropped temp to 225. B&B settled right down and is running smooth. Last temp dip is when I opened to spritz for first time.

            Ribs turned our great. Very juicy. Took about 7 hours. Most of cook at 225, then bumped to 250 to get out of stall. Up to 275 to finish in time for supper.

            Here is a graph of the cook. Really, really impressed with how consistent the B&B briquettes perform and how quickly and accurately they adjust to the Fireboard setting. Since they are readily available at Academy, I don't see myself using KBB again.
