Beef back ribs

Made beef back ribs today and all I can say is WOW! They come out perfect! I set the BGE at 265 and cooked the ribs for 5 hours. At the 4th hour the coated them with Jack Daniels original BBQ sauce. They were great. I had zero issues with keeping the temp and I opened the grill at the 2 nd hour to spray them down with some apple cider viniger. The best I've made folks. For more info drop me a line. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

    Those are my favorite!  Beef ribs aren't pretty but they make up for it in flavor, IMHO.

    What's the doneness test/temp for beef ribs?  Did you do some kind of rub, or nothing until the sauce?
  • It was at 195 and I used mustard, garlic pepper and onion powder as a rub then basted them the last 30 mins with BBQ sauce. I did a pull test on the ribs as well and it was just starting to peel from the bone so I did not feel then were over done. I enjoyed them.

    I was thinking about doing some beef ribs.  You convinced me to give it a shot.  Those really look good!!  Is that a large BGE?
  • Boosway-Yep it was on the LG.  I could never get beef ribs to turn out the way I liked them untill the Egg.  Being able to keep the egg set at 250 to 280 was key in have tender beef ribs.  On my old smoker I could never keep good consistant heat so they always turned out tough.  Ive done the beef ribs a few more times since these and they get better every time.  A great thing about beef ribs is they are cheap and have super great flavor.  Good luck and ensure to share some pictures.

    I bought a couple packs myself to do soon. Problem is by me, I can't find them with more than 2 bones.
