Boneless beef chuck ribs Costco

I thought I'd give these a try.
Boneless beef chuck short ribs from Costco.

My plan: Marinate 3 hours in some Grill Crazy marinade. Indirect, liquid in drip-pan, 225* dome temp,  handful of hickory chips for smoke, foil when internal temp reach 180*.
Hoping for some good results.

    I am looking forward to seeing how these turn out.  I almost picked up some at my Costco last week.

    Dinner is served!
    I foiled at 180* with a little beef broth and marinade. Placed back in the egg for another hour. 
    They look and taste awesome! I'm slightly disappointed with the tenderness of the beef. It's not the results I was shooting for. Don't get me wrong they were tender and not tough. Nothing though like the results of the beef ribs I cook. 
    My wife,  daughters, son-in-laws all say I'm being way to critical on my self. 
    They are saying that they loved them.
    I'll give these another try some day, with some tweaking.
    I'd love for others to cook these and find a proven method.

    If they weren't melt tender, I would think they were underdone.  With those (because no bone) it is best to get good smoke on them, then braise them till they get home.  Or grind them for some awesome burgers!!
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    @cazzy  they were not melt tender. Probably should have gone longer, like you say. When I checked them coming out of the foil they were right at 200* . I thought that was the magic number. I should have waited until they felt tender to the touch.
