Beef back ribs

edited November 2011 in Beef

Scored a nice 8 bone rack of beef back ribs at the local farmer's market this morning. Just over 3 lb. @ $1.99 Cdn.

Slathered them with mustard and used Dizzy Pig's Red Eye Express on them. At this time, they have been on for 3½ hrs. @ 250º dome temp.

Thermopen is showing from 165º centre of rack to 183º out near the edges. Not planning on saucing, just a dipping sauce.

Not much resistance to the Thermopen in the meat between the bones ... I'm getting excited! 

Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.

    Thermopen went in easy all up & down that rack (temp varied 20º), so I foiled them with a bit of apple juice for an hour or so.

    Made a nice spicy little dipping sauce, from Napoleon fire roasted garlic sauce, beer & ghost pepper infused oil. It had a thin consistency and only used every other bite ... very nice!

    Flavor was what I was looking for ....

    Squeezy - how long were they on?  I am finally getting around to cooking the beef back ribs I bought a few days back tonight (I think anyway).
