Beef Ribs - I know they exist.

Have never read anything about beef ribs on the forum.[p]Any BGE'ers ever make them?

    <p />CptQueeg,[p]My website has a little about them and some pictures. They are not a big favorite of mine though. They need longggg cooking times to get the grease out and to tender them up. They are a little greasy and tough - IE: that's way the long slow cook. 5-7 hours at 250-275 indirect should get you close, maybe less if they are already cut up.[p]Tim

    <p />CptQueeg, I'm in total agreement with Tim - for the time cooked, they are just 'OK' - much prefer BabyBacks! :~}[p]Check out the link for time, etc.

    CptQueeg,[p]Funny you should ask, I just cooked some the night before last with good results. [p]They were "shorts", that is already cut up into short individual pieces. Sprinkled on a basic rub and cooked them for about 2.5 hours at 275. Use a drip pan- a lot of grease. I would have liked to cooked them longer, to rend of more of the fat, but they were done and I dared not cook them longer in fear of making them tough.[p]These beef ribs were real fatty but what meat there was on them were absolutely delicious.[p]Hope this helps.[p]Bill

    Bill in VA,
    We do them all the time. Don't be afraid to extend the cook. If you leave 4 or 5 ribs joined together like in the posted photos, cook them to an internal temp of 195+/-. Most of the fat will be gone and the sweet taste of that beef comes out in force. We find that at 250 the ribs are done in 5-6 hours.
    Have fun,

    Thanks for the comment. A friend brought them over and said " You cook em, we'll eat em!" I said "Sure!". But I sure didn't want to ruin his meat. I played it safe, but maybe I'll cook them longer next time. [p]Oh, I just picked up a nice remote thermometer for $19 that will sure come in handy.[p]Bill

    It's made by Pyrex. Rated at 400ºF. Has an on-off switch, countdown timer and an "at Temperature" alarm. It displays actual temperature and the set point temperature. It can also switch between Cº & Fº.[p]I bought it at 'Bed Bath & Beyond'. It was $19.99.[p]If you want, I'll try to post a picture later this evening.[p]Bill[p]

    Bill in VA,
    I just looked it up on their website. What you have is a standard polder thermometer. A remote thermometer sends a wireless signal to a receiver. The best price I've seen for them is in the 40. range.

    Sorry about the confusion. You are correct. This is not a transmitter/transceiver type.

    The sensor is "remote" in the sense that it is in a different location than the device, but still connected with wire.[p]Bill
