    A little late, but I’ve found that if you ask a butcher for them they usually have them. I believe that most of them get cut into the short pieces because people can treat them the same as pork ribs when they are that size. Most people don’t want to spend 9 hrs cocking ribs, and a lot of people don’t know what to do with a beef rib that size.

    Update to my earlier post:

    I was at my local butcher for a few things and asked if they had racks available. Sure enough. They’re back! Prime grade 4 bone chuck short ribs for $7.49 per lb. The price went up $1.50 per pound, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers right. 👏👍

    This is how I get them. My grocery store has flanken cut and English cut on display. If you ask at the meat counter they will bring you out a whole slab.

    Willy You must have gotten lucky with those Allen Brothers plate ribs. I was quite disappointed in the ones I got.
    They did taste good but they were very small.
    One rack was barely over 3lbs and the other just under 4lbs.

    A year or so ago, I asked the butcher at our Safeway if they had whole, four bone short rib slabs. He went in back and got me a whole slab, still frozen. On display, they usually have some flanken and English cut, but NEVER are whole racks on display. So...ask your butchers what might be in the back. If they are cutting meat in-store and carry flanken/English cut, I'd guess the odds of getting whole slabs just might be in your favor. ;«) Also, for those in or near Tucson, try Dickman's; they have/had a good selection of meat, including "exotics" like kangaroo, elk, python(!), etc.

    BTW, the short ribs from the Allen Brothers package deal that Meathead got us the discount for were EXCELLENT! One slab smoked, one still in the freezer. Probably the best single Q I've ever done. Thanks, Meathead I'm looking forward delivery of my first Sitka Salmon Share pack in a couple of weeks.

    Ok, the dino bones are hard to find here, too. Sometimes at Sam’s Club. But they usually have short ribs (small cut) and flanken/Asian style.

    I’ve never made the dino bones. I have two sets in the freezer, though.

    These guys are in Philadelphia. And they ship fresh.
    Very well trimmed and meaty.

    -We had a family reunion at Northmoreland Park 3 years ago. All the meat for the event was bought at two places. Thoma Meat Market in Saxonburg (interesting place) and Golden Dawn (small Supermarket off Freeport Rd) in New Kensington. One of those two places had beef short ribs at least 3 years ago.
    -Here in Va Beach beef short ribs are a bit easier to find at the usual suspects Costco, Restaurant Depot, Wegmans, BJ's.
    -Hope you are successful in your hunt.
    *Should have looked before I posted. Golden Dawns weekly flyer advertises Bone In Beef Short Ribs at $5.99 lb.
    **Thoma does not list them on their menu of cuts of meat.
