    I have been wanting to try Beef ribs for a long time so today I did it. Publix only had 1 pack of them and they were cut up, not a rack. I asked the girl behind counter and she said that is all they had so I bought them and a rack of Baby backs.

    The beef ribs I just coated with olive oil then added salt, pepper, and garlic powder to all sides. The baby backs olive oil and the normal rub I use, only about 30 minutes prior to putting them on the smoker. I smoked  with Cherry wood as it seems to be my favorite. When I foiled them I realized I was out of apple juice, all I had was white grape so I used a 1/4 cup of that in each foil package. I normally add BBQ sauce on the last hour but today decided to do them naked and put the sauce on the side to dip in.

    Did the 2-2-1 method on them and have to say the beef ribs are awesome! Here are some pictures. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG]  I can't get beef ribs unless I get a rib roast. My butcher saved me some from a rib roast he boned out. There was hardly any meat on them, he cuts them very close to the bone. He said no problem to me not taking them as he scraps the meat and adds it to his ground beef.

    I knew looking at this site when I haven't had anything to eat today (surgery tomorrow, can't eat for 24 hours. AHHH!) was a terrible, terrible idea. I think my stomach swallowed itself when I saw these pictures.
