    Adam's Rib? Nope, IMPS 130 Chuck Short Ribs, big beef ribs are on today's lunch menu.

    Put these into the smoker at 0530am with a tray of Northern beans under'em to catch the drippings.
    Three hour smoke over Hickory at 275°-300°, then into foil with beef broth to braise for 2 hours more and rested for an hour
    Also made a Southwestern Avocado salad to go with these.

    Simple rub of coarse salt, fresh cracked black pepper, onion / garlic powder and paprika.

    An early wake up demands a good breakfast, so after getting the smoker running at temp and loaded I made eggs-n- loaded hashbrowns

    At 0830am I pulled the ribs to foil and braise them.

    It was time to cover the beans, but I had to taste test them first.... Mmmm yummy

    Time to make the Southwestern Avocado Salad

    Took the ribs out and let them rest for an hour before unveiling
    Once out, Oh man did they look and smell great

    Sliced like butter, almost wanted to fall apart but had that nice Light Tug to actually remove meat

    Money Shot

    Looking back on this particular cut of ribs, I'd not braise again.
    Lots of marbling in these and tenderness will not be an issue..
    Next time I'll go all the way in the smoker and get a nicer bark.

    Thanks for the Point.

    No sir, don't mind sharing anything, that's what we're her for.

    I use freeze dried hashbrowns, I add a little water and precook them for a minute or two in the microwave.
    In a 10" skillet add bacon grease or butter, then saute coarse chopped onion till just softening, add bell pepper, jalapeno and minced garlic and saute for a few minutes more.
    Toss in a handful of real bacon bits, add the hash browns and brown the one side well.
    Put a plate over the top and flip it, slide uncooked side back into the skillet and brown it too.
    Slide out of skillet onto plate, top with eggs, chile, cheese, flour gravy or whatever you like.

    Southwestern Avocado Salad
    I'll give ya as close to the proportions as I can on that bowl.
    Every batch is a little different.

    1 can Black Beans, drained
    1 can White Corn, drained
    (could've take another can of corn)
    1 can whole Green Chile, then minced
    1 can Rotel, drained
    4 Avocados, chunked small
    1/2 each large Yellow, Red and Green Bell, chopped fine
    (could've used all of the peppers)
    1/2 large Red Onion, chopped fine
    1/2C Cilantro leaves, chopped coarse
    1 large Jalapeno, minced
    1 Lime, juiced
    2t Cumin, ground
    2t Garlic powder
    1-2T Salt

    Add everything but the Avocado, mix well season to taste.
    Then add Avocado, fold in so as not to completely mash it, leave lots of chunks.
    Eat as a salad or eat with tortilla chips like a super chunky guacamole.

    Boy that's one heck of a good looking meal!

    Now that's what a beef rib should look like! All I can get around here are the bare ones with all the meat cut off.

    Sad cow.  [​IMG]

    Thank you all very much for the compliments, greatly appreciate the replies and Points.
    And to make the Carousel no less, nice.

    I could not believe how juicy/sticky these 'Chuck Shorts' were.
    The amount of fat/collagen was astounding, it was literally dripping out, fingers were sticking together.
    But oh so flavorful, definitely won't turn my nose up at these in favor of 'Short Plates' again.

    The "Chuck Ribs" around here sure don't look like that!
    So much meat!
    Gotta try those beans. Simple and efficient...


  16. I'm thinking those may commonly be known as  "Plate ribs" ?  

    They are the ones typically w very thick meat on them, with bones w flattish cross sections, and pretty flat, not very curved, in the long dimension.

    Kind of near the front lower side near belly, not higher up.            Marc

    These were IMPS/NAMP 130 Chuck Short Ribs (shoulder), you're talking about IMPS/NAMP 123/123a Plate Short Ribs (belly) and then there is 124 Beef Back Ribs (loin).
