Don't see much talk about beef ribs 'round hya![p]Looking thru Tim's site (getting sidetracked from my work) I again noticed his beef rib section. Man those look great. Yet we hear about beef ribs so infrequently....almost never. Why??? Seems like humpty could perform some righteous magic on those beasts.[p]What type of beef ribs should I buy. I wanna do this!
Might even make a good new back-to-basics challenge![p]Whadyall think?[p]Hey, I'm tryin to work!

    <p />Nature Boy, - your post inspired me - I drove to my local market and picked up the ribs in the picture - don't look all that great, but we'll see what they taste like tomorrow - trimmed them up a little, covered them with rub and put them in the refrigerator to wait for tomorrow afternoon - thank for the idea! [p]Results to follow...

    Nature Boy,
    "where's the BEEF?"....That reminds me of that Wendy's commercial a few yrs back with that woman of the older generation. Not bad of a line that recieved 4 million $$$$$$$$. Sorry ..throwback moment. Disregard and delete this message.

    Nature Boy,[p]I have cooked both beef ribs and short ribs.[p]My best cook was using the meatiest ribs I could obtain, well trimed of fat. I marinated them for 4 hours in pineapple juice, cooked direct in a rack using a dome temp of 210-220F for 5 hours (turning, flipping once). I used James sauce (sweet/bite, nice) and a light smoke of hickory chips.[p]The problem with beef ribs is the high percentage of fat to meat.[p]Spin

    Spin,
    Thanks. Direct does seem like the way to go. James sauce is very good...suprised it isn't mentioned more often. I cooked up a batch exactly from his latest recipe, and it was killer.[p]I will buy some soon...I think they might even be on sale this week.[p]Cheers

    Nature Boy,[p]For anybody interested, here is the link to James post of his sauce recipe. It is worth a try.[p]Spin

    Spin,
    Sounds very sweet with an after bite.

    JJ,
    I really like the sage in it too. Has a very unique twang.

    Spin,[p]You're right. The beef ribs have a lot - make that A LOT - of fat per rib. The results are tasty greasy ribs. I like them now and then at best. They seem to do best with a long slow cook at low temps to get rid of that extra grease. Certainly worth a try for those who haven't. I try to get them in a small rack - they seem to slow cook better than already cut ones. [p]Tim[p]Tim

    Gfw,[p]How are you going to cook them?[p]Tim
  • JJJJ Posts: 951
    Tim M,
    I did some at250* for almost 6 hrs. Removed most of the fat. Still tender and juicy. Even better the next day after I nuked them.

    Tim M, that's a study for tomorrow! It should be interesting.

  • SpinSpin Posts: 1,375
    JJ,[p]It is sweet and provides a bite at the end of the chew, but also provides a nice balance that is hard to achieve. I make the recipe using ground ancho chili as a substitute for the jalepeno. One quarter the heat and a little more pepper flavor.[p]Spin[p]I do wish that James would [p]

  • SpinSpin Posts: 1,375
    JJ,[p]I agree with your cooking intentions. Beef ribs need to have the fat "melted" away to some degree to be good. None left here to nuke as they provided a lot less meat than their initial size would indicate. Maybe NCMike has is figured out.[p]Spin

    Smokin' Todd,
    Yep. One of the classic ads of all time. I loved that ad.
    That ad sold them a bunch-o-burgers it did.
    Remember the McDonalds ad, where you get a hamburger, fries and a coke....and change back from you dollar?? Maybe you aint that old.[p]How 'bout Burger King...."hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, extra orders don't upset us".[p]Don't you get me reminiscing now![p]Later tater

    Gfw,
    The longest I have done mine was 5.5 hrs and they could have gone 6 easy. Longer seems better with them - good luck.[p]Tim

    Tim M,
    Brisket on the bone aka beef ribs. They do like the long cooking time.
