    @Shiff asked butcher for plate may have been given chuck.   =).  Next time will ask to make sure.  Not sure if they could be any better either way.  Really good
    Plate ribs generally cost more than chuck short ribs.  If your butcher doesn't know the difference, then it may be time to find another butcher.  They cook pretty much the same but most people prefer the plate ribs.  I find them fattier than chuck short ribs, but many cooks like that.  Restaurant Depot generally carries both.
  • Re: First time plate ribs.

    Plate ribs usually have 3 bones. Were they labeled plate ribs or chuck short ribs (which usually have 4 bones)?

    In either case, they look great.
  • Re: Do You 'Grill' or 'Cook Outside'?

    I cook on the egg 2-3 times per week and always make enough so we have leftovers a few more nights during the week.  The weather never stops me and I have cooked in rain and snow 12 months of the year.

  • Re: Computer printer cartridge conundrum. Can any of you computer/IT folks help me understand?

    Epson makes some printers that use a continuous ink supply system that you refill from large bottles of ink. They are cheaper in the  long run.  There are pros and cons to this approach and you can do a Google search to see them.

    Since this is a corporate environment, I'm surprised your IT department hasn't installed network attached printers with a color laserjet printer in each area. This is a much cheaper approach with no need to buy everyone their own printer and cartridges.

    Charcoal reviews can be found at

    I've never tried this brand but it seems pretty expensive. Rockwood from Firecraft is much cheaper and shipping is free if you spend over $99.
