Anyone have a real good beef rib recipe?

Going to make beef ribs for the first time this weekend. Has anyone had any real good experiences with them and/or any particular recipe or method to cook. I can see they are pretty fatty so I guess low and slow would be in order. Thanks for any tips.

    Gator,
    As someone here suggested a while back, I just marinated the beef ribs in pineapple juice, nothing else, overnight. I cooked them at around 250F dome for 4 hours or so, until they pulled back from the bone. Simple and easy and very nice.

    <p />Gator,
    There are pictures on my website of a few big boys.
    They need longer than 4 hrs in my opinion and 6 would not be too much. They are greasy - real greasy and they need a looooonnggg cook to drain them down. Add sauce for the last hour if you like it. Here is a small slab after I cut them up.[p]Tim

  • JimW,
    Thanks for the input. Did you use a drip pan and rack or did you go with direct heat?

  • Tim M,
    Those look awfully tasty. Would a drip pan be in order due to all the grease? Also, did you use any chips or chunks and if so what type of wood works best with beef? Thanks,[p]Craig

    <p />Gator, check out the link - my one and only experience at beef ribs - they were good, but I just prefer baby backs. Good luck![p]

    gator,
    I used a water-filled drip pan.

    <p />gator,[p]Drip pan is important but mainly acts as a barrier to the fire. Here is my rack as they went on. I use a double boiler type drip pan and it does a better job than just a drip pan alone. They need to cook 6+ hrs so the drippings tend to burn after awhile. Some add water in the drip pan.[p]Tim
