Prime rib bones

hondabbqhondabbq Posts: 1,292

I have started to buy bone in Prime Ribs at work. I cut he bones off prior to cooking and bring them home to cook on the EGG.

I have done a couple, and they haven't really turned out well for me . I do them low, 250-270 for up to 5 hours. No foil.

I find they are tough, unlike my pork ribs that I would like to think I have pretty much locked down. I am doing another rack today. Just lit the egg.

 

Any advice on getting a better final product?

    basically you are cooking beef back ribs, every time i do them i go a little hotter 275-300 4-5 hours.  i look at pullback of the bone (usually 1.5 inch or more) and toothpick test.  maybe you need more time?  i never foil anything but leftovers.

    Cook them meat side up, bone down. Leave them as a rack, don't cook them individually.

    I changed my method to the nimble one as well. Not the same seasoning but the method.
