Dry Aged Plate Ribs - Proper temp?

I just bought some dry aged plate ribs from (shout out!). They are dry aged about 14 days. In the packaging, there was a pamphlet that said dry aged beef cooks faster and at lower temps. Is this true? If so, what temp would you guys suggest I smoke these? Using an XL BGE, I usually smoke grocery store plate ribs at 285.

    Don't know about ribs but I have not altered cook temperature for dry-aged steak but am sensitive to the quicker cook.  I'm sure there is no explanation for the lower temp suggestion.  I would run like you normally do but be looking for the tooth-pick test finish-line sooner. FWIW-
    BTW-welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.

  • 250 - 275 degrees indirect works great for me. Good luck and have fun. (FYI - I started some about an hour ago.)

  • Thanks guys! Can't wait to get these bad boys started. I'll follow up with some pics. Could be next weekend, so be patient!

    Lower temp cook would be good.  It will finish faster.  Tooth pick finish is key. Eat well.

  • The before. As you can see, these are thick, but they were cut very short/small. Still, the quality was really good.

    4.5 hours in. The sun was brutal, so this is the only angle I could get. 

    The finished product. As you can see, they kind of turned out like beef rib “nuggets” since they were so small. Overall, I was happy with the outcome, and I guess my guests were as well seeing this was the only pic I could take before people started to devour them!

    @hdgraham - thanks for the follow-up.  Great result right there.  Brisket on a stick.  Congrats.
