Prime Dino Ribs

Happened upon a package of prime full size short ribs a while back at Costco. 

Thawed them out for tonight's dinner. Rub was Meatchurch Holy Cow and The Gospel. 

Set up the egg with Fogo and cherry chunks and smoked for about 7 hrs around 300. 

First rack finished quicker so finished cooking the mac and cheese on the egg. Aged cheddar, jack and goat cheese with bacon, onions and creme friache. 

Turned out great!  All the brisket flavor without the time commitment and hassle. 
Couple strawberry margaritas to round things out...cheers!!

    Great cook and even better money shot.  Congrats on the cook.  Nailed it.  You are right about the brisket on a stick flavor-but the rib cook is so much more predictable  ;).  
    BTW- impressive smoke ring.

    Awesome cook - love the color you got.  Those are drool-worthy.  

    More important, I'm psyched Costco might start carrying these!  They're not all that easy to find in my experience, and I love cooking them.

    @JohnInCarolina I stopped in on a Saturday morning....not my usual time. They had more of a varied meat selection for some reason. I may be stopping there more often on Saturday now!

    If you are anywhere near Lexington NC, Conrad-Hinkle keeps these in stock.  The butcher guy told me he ordered several times until he got the cut he wanted.  On a side not their pimento & cheese is to die for.

  • That is fantastic. Great pics, too.

    @Wanasmoke that mac n cheese looks good!!! Care to share the recipe?  
    @CheeseheadinAZ  I just made it up on the fly....still searching for mac nirvana. Put cooked noodles in pan with milk, creme fraiche, aged cheddar, jack and goat cheese. Added some sautéed bacon and onions. Covered and heated through on the egg at about 350 indirect. Took foil off, added half stick of butter and cooked till bubbly and proper texture.  Thought it was good- room for improvement yet ;) 

    Go Pack Go!
