I was intrigued by the beef back ribs @tydfan
made last weekend and decided to use the recipe @nibblemethis
outlined on his blog video.
Long story short, i cooked two racks at 325* for an hour fifteen minutes, foiled for an hour fifteen and finished in fifteen with thinned bbq sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's ColaQ) as a mop.
I used a homemade rub with a baste of 1 tbsp "Better than Bouillon" beef base/1 tbsp Worcestershire. Here are the prepped ribs:
Here is the stack after an hour and fifteen minutes. I used pecan to smoke.
Here are the ribs foiled with brown sugar, onion, and water.
Here are the finished ribs:
I was really happy with the method: it predictably made tender, flavorful ribs.
I was expecting more meat considering how baby backs usually have a low bone - meat ratio. Here, given the size of the bones, I thought I would be getting a lot of meat. Also, it was a bit greasier than what I was expecting. Nonetheless, I will be keeping my eye out for the ribs in the future. They're cheap, easy to make and very flavorful. I don't know that I'd tweak anything.
