    I cook them indirect at 225 grid temp in a rib rack for about 4-5 hours. I use apple or cherry wood chunks for smoke flavor.

    I sometimes baste them every hour or so, but I'm not convinced it really makes a difference.

    Good luck.

    I tried them after watching your U-tube vid. I've been doing beef ribs for years, low and really slow... not anymore. Since your vid I've done Adam Perry Lang's cooking method on 6 racks now, they are the most tender and jucy beef ribs I've ever done. The only thing I'd do differently is season the meat a bit more since it does go through a braising process.
