    Picked up a 7 pound chunk of boneless beef ribs last night at Harter House and have the smoker heating up right now[​IMG]

    This is the closest thing to Prime Rib you can get without unloading the bucks for it. I have smoked it to a nice medium rare and it is awesome, but I actually prefer to take it to the pulling stage like Brisket where it just melts in your mouth! Of all the meats I have smoked before, this has become my all time favorite!

    Pretty much naked except for a light coat of salt and pepper. The beef flavor of this cut stands on it's own, so no need for a bunch of spices to cover up the taste of the meat[​IMG][​IMG]

    More Q view as it progresses

    It just hit 170° IT, so put it in a disposable pan with a cup or so of beef broth, covered it tightly and back in the smoker to finish.  when it's almost there, I will wrap it in towels and pop it in an ice chest to rest an hour or so before slicing.  This is gonna be GOOOOOOOD!

    Not dry at all, very moist, but not greasy like Brisket.  See the pan with the drippings in the lower left corner?  two cups of water, 1 tbsp of beef base then cover and finish to desired tenderness.  I actually spooned a bit of the Au Ju over my slice of ribs and it was goooooood!  For an added kick, add a cup of fresh brewed coffee to the Au Ju

    whatchoo having for din din?

    Where I get mine, bone in is the same price as boneless.  I'm a thrifty sort, so I opt to pay for meat, not bone:)  I have cooked them with the bones in before and can't tell that the bone lends any extra flavor, but it does look cool and makes a great handle.[​IMG]

    If you like brisket and like prime rib, this is kind of a cross between the two.  There is not as much fat as on a brisket, so I recommend foiling about the last half of the cook to retain as much moisture as possible

    I'm unsure what cut you're talking about here - boneless beef ribs, as far as I know, are also sometimes called Country Style Ribs and are actually a cut off of the shoulder clod.  I've cooked them before, but I haven't smoked them.  I always sear and then braise.  Melt in your mouth, fork tender goodness.

    In pork, the CSR's definitely come from the shoulder.  These beef ribs are the upper end of the rib and there is just a big 'ol hunk of meat on 'em.  The butcher just trims them away from the bone like filleting a fish.  You know how you can buy Prime rib in large or small sections or by the rib count?  Same principal on the shortribs except they trim away the ribs

    Ah, so these are short ribs with the ribs trimmed off?

    Yep, no sense in paying $4.99 per pound for those big 'ol bones[​IMG]
