First Attempt at Beef Back Ribs

I didn't let today's cold weather (7 degrees at 9:00 AM) deter me from my plan to cook some Beef Ribs for the first time.

I want to thank Thirdeye for his description and suggestions on cooking great ribs. They really came out great. They were extremely tender - I did put them in foil with some broth for about a half hour at the 4 hour mark, but I really don't think that was necessary since they were very tender already at that time. I took them out of the foil and put them back in the rack for another half hour and then it was time to eat.

I used some DP "Raising the Steaks'

Here's how they looked when they went in the BGE

At the 3 hour mark

and finally done at 5 hours

Luckily there are plenty left over for tomorrow.

    Those look really good. I haven't tried any kind of beef ribs yet. Gonna work on some babybacks tomorrow :cheer:
    Is it as warm :huh: in Lancaster Co. as it is over here in Berks County?

    One of my favorites to do on the Egg. Got to make sure they're really meaty or they're just not worth it. When done I cut out every other bone so that each rib is double thick with a lot of meaty goodness... I think I've just talked myself into taking some prime ones out of the freezer

    When I cooked the ribs it was 7 degrees at the beginning and went all the way up to 17 by the time they were done.

    This morning it is 3 degrees, but is supposed to soar all the way up to 20 later.

    The ribs I cooked were quite meaty - they were from a local market called Stauffers. I hope they keep selling ribs like these because I want to cook some again. I'll have to compliment the butchers when I next go in.
