Beef Plate Ribs

Our Costco hasn't had beef ribs, prime or choice, for over a year. Desperate for Dino ribs, we found a butcher that sells Certified Angus Beef, so we decided to give his plate ribs a try.

This is a 4.1 pound slab after removing silver and excess fat:

Coated with coarse S&P, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and placed in the refrigerator, overnight, meat side down.


250 degrees dome temp, indirect with drip pan. No liquid in pan. No wood chunks.

Removed from refrigerator and sat it at room temperature, unwrapped for 1/2 hour. Then I added a "whisper" of granulated garlic and started the cook.

4 hours later:

It was cruising at about 165 degrees. I didn't wrap.

Passed the toothpick test @ 201 degrees. This took 7 1/2 hours. Then I wrapped in foil and placed in Faux Cambro for 1 hour.

It came out great.

Large Egg, PGS A40 gasser.
