    Decided to try beef short ribs today. Picked up 2 racks from my butcher, I believe it's 3-4 ribs per rack. Just used salt/pepper. Put it on overnight, threw it on smoker a little while ago. Also doing some pork ribs with a rub I use a lot. Beef ribs barely fit on my smoker, even on the top rack. I had to stand them on end. Luckily it clears the lid. Pork ribs on bottom, beef on top.

    I just realized how big the beef ribs are... 1 full rack of pork ribs is almost equal to one half of the beef ribs, no wonder I ran outta room.

    Im going to ask the wife for another smoker for xmas.. either the 22" weber or an offset... but I'd rather use coal still in the offset, easier to come by coal then wood.

    Wow, what 3 hours difference makes... I went out to foil my pork ribs (not foiling the beef ribs). And snuck a piece of the bark from the beef ribs... so tasty

    Ohh boy ohh boy almost there. Another hour or two to go. I cranked the heat up to 250-275 now, also threw some corn on the smoker.

    Meanwhile we're enjoying the ribs. Falling off the bone (which I like). So tender, so good, yum... here are some more pics:

    Okay who's ready for some BBQ Porn... well here ya go... they were DAMN tasty let me tell ya what. I was worried I put too much salt/pepper on it but ohhh no, she could handle it. I just wish more of the fat rendered out. Maybe I should have cooked it another 1-2 hours around 225. All in all I had it around 225-240 for 6 hours. Then around 250-270 for about 1 1/2 hours. I put the corn on when I took the pork off (after 6 hours).... corn was SOOO good.

  9. Hubba hubba those are some pretty shots. Great job.
  10. Those look really good.  The first time I did short ribs they ended up on the UDS for about 13 hours.  Thought about foiling em, but did not.  They were pretty well rendered and yummy!

    Great looking ribs.  Nice to see that some places still sell decent beef ribs.  They sure don't up here.
