    Has anyone tried to make boneless baby back ribs/steak like Bubba (as seen on shark tank)?  I am giving this a shot although I can't find anything about his secret, deboning process.  

    Here are pics of my prep so far.  I really just trimmed around the bone while leaving them in during cooking.  I am now cooking them using the 3-2-1 method

    Here they are all done although this is just 1 rack.  They were excellent but not much different taste wise as when they are on the bone.  I just wanted to try them as a "steak" (boneless).  I would never do this on a regular basis given the amount of prep work to slice around the bone.

    Those look good but sounds like a lot of work! I like to slice down the bone to shorten my racks so they fit on my smoker. Then wrap the singles in bacon plenty of rub before and after as some will drip away with all the bacon fat.

    You know, I saw this episode last week and wondered if anyone here had done that. How did you debone without just cutting off the meat? His ribs looked like the rack was still intact without the bones.

    I just cut around the side of each bone and around the ends without going thru the other side of the rib. I smoked them and after having them wrapped in foil and grilled for 2 hours (3 2 1 method) the bones slid out easily. They were great but I like ribs on the bone for eating sakes. Kind of like chicken wings ....
