Beef Ribs Questions

Ragtop99Ragtop99 Posts: 1,096
Some of the posts showing beef ribs look pretty good and I was thinking of making them for my next BBQ since several guests will not eat pork.  I have some questions:

1) At the store I saw beef back ribs on sale at $2/lb and they looked huge (i.e. each bone was longer than the longest rib on a rack of pork spares).  There were also beef chuck shorts for $4/lb.  What's the difference and which do I purchase for a low & slow set of ribs?

2) Do they require any prep or cooking technique different from pork ribs?  For pork ribs all I do is remove the back side membrane, add a little rub, and cook indirect for 5 hrs at 250* (no foil) and sauce at the end (typically at 325* for 10 minutes a mopping to crystallize it a bit).
