Beef Ribs and Coleslaw, Extra Good

dbCooper Posts: 2,024
Couple pleasant surprises right off the bat:
- membrane came off easily and in a single piece
- opened a new bag of lump, string was removed with a single pull
These were cooked at about 240 for nearly six hours, Spicy DP for rub.  Used cask strength bourbon barrel wood chunks, possibly single-barrel.  ;). Not sure they add anything to final product, but they smell nice.  Ribs were Choice, didn't look anything special.  Came out extra tender and flavorful.

    Nice, you scored a hat trick! Even meatless beef ribs are not easy to find here 🤨
  • Looks great. As @Canugghead points out, they’re hard to find here. And when you do find them, they’ll pricey.

    Great looking ribs.  And you got all four ribs to recede in the same direction.  That is up there with your opening two wins.  Nicely done.

    We make those regularly, twice a month or so.  Guessing less than 10% of the racks I cook have the bones recede uniformly like that.  Kind of cool when they do it.
    That is homemade coleslaw.  Angie found the recipe a couple years ago (she likes sweet) so be aware of the sugar.  Some notes/mods:
    - we often will use a packaged bag of shredded cabbage/carrots, instead of chopping raw
    - we use Mayo not Miracle Whip
    - sugar usually gets increased to 1/2 cup and pepper doubled
    - not advisable to omit the buttermilk by thinking you can double the regular milk
    - if you enjoy some heat, adding diced jalapenos (or other hot pepper) goes well

        1 cup of Shredded Cabbage
        1 cup of Shredded Carrots
        1 cup of Shredded Purple Cabbage
        1 cup of Miracle Whip
        1 teaspoon of Celery Seed
        ½ teaspoon of Salt
        ½ teaspoon of Pepper
        ⅓ cup of Sugar
        ¼ a cup of Vinegar
        ¼ of Buttermilk
        ¼ of Milk
        4 teaspoons of Lemon Juice

        Start by placing your cabbage and carrots in a large mix bowl.
        Mix until well combined.
        Add in miracle whip, celery seed, salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar, buttermilk, milk and lemon juice.
        Mix and toss until well combined.
        Chill in the fridge for 3 hours.
        Serve and enjoy!

    Very nice.  Question about the gasket around the egg?  Being the top doesn't latch down on the egg are you only using the braided gasket on the bottom half only any input please?

    They came from a butcher shop in the area.  Oak Barn Beef only sells short ribs.  I've asked Hannah about adding plate ribs in the past, will bring them up again next time an order is placed.
    The Rutland Gasket is only on the bottom, gravity acting on the dome seals things nicely, no latch needed.
