More Beef Ribs

With all the posts on beef ribs popping up, I had to go pick some up.  I got the temp topper rigged up and set the dome to 240 degrees F.  Grid is showing to be holding steady at 220 degrees F.  

These are chuck ribs (short ribs), they look good just sitting there.  I started this cook a little late in the day, so I should be good and hungry by the time they are done.

    Beef ribs on the egg are one of my favorite cooks. I bet yours will be delicious.

    I may have underestimated the cook time for this slab of ribs.  They hit a stall at 147 degrees and have only increased to 153 degrees over an hour and a half.  I hope it releases soon and starts climbing.........  The egg is still sitting at 250 degrees dome temperature.

    I hope they finish for you soon but mine have usually taken 5-6 hours.  I generally cook mine at 250-275 at the grid.

    Wow, these took way longer than I had thought they would.  However, they turned out great.

    This is a method that I've tried that's less time consuming:

    325 degrees for an hour and 15 min

    wrap in foil with one ounce of liquid and chopped onions and put back on the grill at 325 for another hour and 15 min.

    Unwrap, put back on the grill at 325 for 30 min, test for tenderness and then sauce and finish.

    I can't tell the difference between doing this this way and doing them at 250 for 5.5-6 hours.
