I'll be posting my beef ribs cook on this thread. Just finished calibrating the thermometer and adding coal.
I've read a lot of posting here re: beef ribs. I've only done them one other time a few years ago and they were decent, but I didn't cook them nearly long enough.
I had planned on cooking these about 5 hours at 250 like as seems to be the consensus around here. However, I just spoke with Judge Bean (local pitmaster, restauranteur and Texan). When he said they have to cook a long time. I said "yeah, like 5-6 hours, right?". He and one of his cook guys, laughed and he said "we cook ours a lot longer than that. More like a couple of days. He said to cook'em at 180.
So I'm gonna try to stabilize the Egg at 180, cook them til tomorrow around 1 or 2. See how they're doing and if they're not there yet, crank the heat on up to 250 to finish them. The deadline is my birthday party at 4pm.
