Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Beef Ribs Tamed

Well, the ribs were good. Maybe a bit more done that optimum, but the fat was successfully rendered. The crust was, well, crusty. The meat was very tender, still moist, but flaked easily (not at all like pork). A very nice mesquite flavor, with a little sweetness from the sauce to compliment JJs rub. [p]They were on the egg 7.5 hours, the last hour the egg was shut down. Average temp of the cook was probably 230. [p]I used my extended grate to get the meat further from the coals. Started at 200, and worked up to 240, but it dropped back to 225 while I was working. I let it go at 225, cuz it really looked like they were coming along. I think 225 for 7 hours would be perfect (at least with the small slab I was working with). [p]Definitely worth doing. The other slab I have in the freezer will probably go in a soy, garlic, ginger marinade tomorrow, for a Thursday cook. That dang membrane is a bit pesky on the beef ribs, and very thick. I thought I had removed it, but obviously I only got a layer. They really do get in the way of eating![p]So, if ya haven't done beef ribs (brisket on a stick as JJ says), give it a go. [p]Cheers
