First Plate Beef Ribs - with new sweet rib rub

SamIAm2SamIAm2 Posts: 757
edited September 2017 in Beef
:) Had plate ribs in refer since last Saturday, took them out on Monday, added sea salt, and put them back till this morning.

Rinsed off the salt and added mustard and new rub I used yesterday on pork tenderloin. Hoping the flavor profile of the rub works well with the beef ribs.

On the large with 3 chunks of peach wood and a foil pack with cherry pellets at 250 degrees dome.

This is going to be another experimental cook for me! Running this cook without Smoke set up. Toothpick standing by. :) Will post progress photographs later. Thanks for looking.

    3 hours and internal temp is 181 degrees. Smells wonderful. Looks like this:

    4 hours and internal temp is 183 degrees. Rotated the ribs and it looks like the top is trying to separate. 

    Thanks for looking.

    At the 5 hour mark. Do these things stall like brisket?? I rotated the ribs 90 degrees and the temperature is still 185 internal.

     Toothpick does not probe like "buttah". Anything I should be doing at this point?

    Very nasty looking storm rolling in so I pulled and it is resting. Toothpick probed like buttah almost all the way thru the meat between the bones. 

    Will post final pictures after I cut ribs apart and plate supper.

    Those look wonderful.  If others are having troubles finding Plate Ribs, see if you have a Restaurant Depot near you - they always have them in my area.

    Everyone should give these a try.

    Pulled, rested and the resistance I felt with the toothpick was the thick membrane on these ribs. 

    This was brisket point on a stick. I had an outside piece with the last of the baked beans my eggin' friend made.

    The sweet rub made a very tasty bark. I have two more of these things to look forward to because SWMBO does not like pork or beef ribs of any kind. Guess I'll just have to suffer all by myself.  

    Are the bones safe for large dogs to chew? Got three large dogs down the street that might like them.

    Hope you enjoyed the ride along and thanks for looking.

    Dome crept up to 275 about 3 hours in and then hit 300 just before I pulled the ribs. Yes on 6 hours.

    Thanks for your kind comments. The dogs already love me - they get the cooked turkey or chicken liver, neck bone meat, and anything else put in the birds over jasmine rice. Just started giving them the back bone now that I am doing spatchcock with birds. Probably ought to wait till I finish all three ribs before going down there. ;)
    Edit- neck bone and back bone meat carefully pulled from the bones.

    Thanks for tagging along for the ride. I couldn't do them justice in the eating department though. There was just too much meat for one. :)

    Nailed the cook. As noted, brisket on a stick.  And patience is the watchword.  Trust the toothpick and you will be rewarded as you were.  Way to bring it home.
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.  
  • Looks delicious from here, well done!

    Thanks Cap. Now trying to think what to do with the other two ribs. Got two boxers down the street who are waiting for their own bone. :)
