First crack at beef ribs

HappyChuckHappyChuck Posts: 6
Went to the store to grab a brisket and came across some beef ribs. Ive been wanting to try some, so I pulled the trigger. I almost decided not to smoke them, and try to find a different recipe because I got chuck ribs and not plate ribs. I read that these are not good to smoke, but I went for it anyway. Pretty pleased with the result!!

Went pretty much 100% by Franklins method. 285 until 203 internal.

    For an all around great job my friend👍

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Perfect.  I would rather smoke short/plate beef ribs than just about anything. Edited to say, if you haven't thought about it, freeze the bones and throw them in the next batch of chili you make.   

    Sobriety certainly is good, i try to save it for special occasions though.

    Outstanding, brisket on a stick.  It doesn't get much better than that on the Egg.
