Greetings from the UK

Im looking to ….. see below pic !smoke a couple of 4 rib racks of short beef rib 

I’m assuming 230f until 195c cooked temperature with a salt and pepper rub

Question: Do I need to foil them ?

Either way, what kind of cooking time am I looking at

    Welcome from the Yank side.  Your cook temp (230*f) will work but I prefer to run them in the 260-280*F range.  S&P works well.  I use worstershire as a binder but clearly optional.
    For the finish-use a toothpick and check for the feel in the thick part of the rib meat and between the bones.  No resistance and you are there-likely around 200*F+/-.  Cook time can roll from around 4 1/2 to over 6 hrs. 
    BTW-scroll down the front page of threads and you will see one about a "Zoom/Speakeasy" session happening on Friday 12/30.  That session intentionally will kick off at 5 PM/10 PM (EST/GMT) to enable you guys from your side of the pond to participate.  FWIW-

    - Understand your plight concerning metric but what about this?
    - Not wanting to start anything and understand you are in the UK but my wife was sniffing around a Buche De Noel recipe online today and this table appeared.

    I agree with everything Lou says above. I will add, I like to pull the membrane off of the bone side before rubbing. Salt & pepper or any good brisket rub will do. I also trim off any hard fat pre rub. I have never wrapped in foil. Let them ride until roughly 200 degrees or probe tender.

    We have been told for decades we would migrate to the metric system.   Most of us get the metric system but just don’t want to live in it.  But I hear where you are coming from.

    Actually people in the UK just say “Wooster” when it’s the sauce, the “oo” sounding like the “ou” in would.

    I like to say "Worcestershire sauce" immediately following my annual July 4th reading of the Declaration of Independence.

    All good advice about beef ribs!  Especially the part about pulling them before 383°F!

    Some good eating awaits!  Let us know what you think!

    Don't use that ounce-gram conversion chart if you value accuracy. An ounce is 28.350 grams, 2 ounces are 56.50 grams, etc.

    Uhmmm, I couldn't have said it better myself.  Except that I use mayonnaise as a binder when I cook a plate of beef ribs to avoid them getting too salty ... worstershire sounds good though!
