Found some beef ribs a while back and decided to give them a shot. We don't see beef ribs around here much so I have no experience prior to this smoke. Ribs in the smoker around 2 pm. Used olive oil, and SPOG with a few red pepper flakes to season. Trying to keep it simple. Few hours in I decided to baste so I put the ribs in a pan to avoid mes clean up. Mixed up some beef broth, dales, and Sriracha. Aggressively coated the ribs every hour from 4 pm to 8 pm. After 6 hours in the smoker (set at 210) the ribs were at 135. I took the pan in the house and warmed up the oven. I then added beef broth to the bottom of the pan, foil covered and cooked another 2 hours to get the ribs up to 200 degrees. Good pull back. Decent looking rib. Whole slab cut. The Wonder Dog is waiting for one to fall off the counter while I cut them. Ribs were still tough. Had great flavor but they were tough. My guess is I should have cooked them longer. Maybe to 210? And maybe a little slower. The 250 in the oven might have been to much. I was tired and just wanted to get them finished. I have a few more slabs any suggestions on making them more tender would be appreciated. Thanks.
