    Prime Beef Ribs & Pork Steaks

    I had these 3 sections of Beef Ribs in my Freezer since last Christmas, when they were cut off of my Prime Ribs.

    I didn't want to only smoke one rack full, so Mrs Bear picked up some Pork Sirloin Chops (Steaks). She kept a few pieces to pound, bread, and fry, for another night, and gave me the rest.

    So the first day,  I rinsed & patted everything dry. 
    Then I coated the Beef Ribs with Worcestershire "Thick", and sprinkled CBP, Garlic Powder & Onion Powder on top.
    Then covered with plastic wrap, and into the fridge for an overnight rest.

    Also covered the Pork with Yellow Mustard & some Pork Rub, and covered with plastic wrap & into fridge with the Beef Ribs.

    Then the next day:
    11:15--------------------Preheat MES 40 to 230*
    11:30--------------------Fill one row of AMNPS with Hickory Pellets & light.
    11:50--------------------Put AMNPS in bottom left, on bars, and reset heat to 225*.
    12:00--------------------Put Beef Ribs in smoker on Rack #1, and Pork Steaks on Rack #2.
    02:00--------------------Put Pork in Pan, add foiling mix** & cover with foil.
    02:00--------------------Also add another row of pellets to my AMNPS (Forgot about the Taters).
    02:30--------------------Stack Beef Ribs in 8 X 8 pan, add foil mix** & cover with foil.
    02:30--------------------Also Pull Pork Steak package, and put in cooler with towels.
    03:40--------------------Light Weber "Q".
    04:00--------------------Put Stuffed Taters on top rack in Smoker.
    04:00--------------------Get Pork Steaks out & flip them around awhile on the "Q" with a little BBQ sauce on them.
    04:30--------------------Remove Beef Ribs & Stuffed Taters. Ribs were between 155* and 160* IT.
    05:00--------------------Take Pics & Eat.

    ** Foil Mix---------10 oz of Apple Juice, 2 oz of JD BBQ Sauce, and 2 oz of Ken's Honey Teriyaki Marinade. (Heat & stir before adding)

    Note: I usually do my Beef Ribs at (3--2.5), but this time I did them at (2.5--2), and they still had some pink at 155* to 160* IT. Hard to say which way I enjoyed the most----They're both so Dang Tasty!!!

    Mrs Bear's Stuffed Taters were Awesome----Hard to believe how much Tasty Smoke flavor they absorb in a half hour!!

    Thanks For Looking,


    Cut-off Beef Ribs from 3 of my last Prime Ribs I scored last Christmas:

    Rubbed, covered, & into fridge:

    Gotta add some Pork Steaks too:

    Not a bad price for nowadays:

    Smear a little Yellow Mustard & some Pork Rub:

    Then out we go, to where it all happens!!!

    Through the Looking Glass------Beef above Pork:

    Gotta get my Hickory Pellets going in my AMNPS:

    Looks like good smoke-----In she goes:

    While we wait, it was so Beautiful out, I took a couple pics. My front yard taken from standing next to my smoker:

    Pet Cemetery over at the edge of the woods. 
    Those 3 pots make it easy to find my 3 septic tank lids when we have to pump it out every 5 years.

    Time to foil the Beef & Grill the Pork:

    Flip the Pork Steaks around a little on the "Q", with a little sauce on them:

    I like to put Mrs Bear's Stuffed Taters in for some smoke during the last half hour:

    Time for a Close-up:

    Fresh out of the Smoker:

    MMMMmmmmmm------Nice & Pink:

    Bear's first helping, with some elbow room:

    Outstanding Bear, as usual!  I'd do some damage to a plate of that!  

    Still nice and green in your neck of the woods.  Its the same here, for a change.  Usually in NE Oklahoma by the middle of August, the heat and the drought has burned everything up to a crunchy brown.  Not so this year...we've had an unusually mild and wet summer.

    Nice job on the qview!  [​IMG]

    Thank You Justin!!!

    LOL---The Bear often does that, but this time if you look at the raw pork on the plates, you can see the same notches are missing.[​IMG]

    I think it's where they removed the bone.

    Thank You Gary!!

    I Appreciate the compliments!!

    Great looking spread . You look like your having some nice weather for outdoor eating.
    Massive rain event here.
    We don't see a lot of beef cut like that. I have to shop around .
    Gotta love beef on the bone.

    Great looking meal Bear! Yards looking good too!
  16. Hello Bear.  Another fine how to.  I do love beef ribs, prefer them to pork ribs.  My pork steaks never make it outside.  They get floured and fried.  Love chicken fried pork steaks/chops, and of course chicken fried steak.  Something wonderful happens to the fat on a pork chop when it's fried.  [​IMG]   OK so it's bad for me but still working on my first heart attack.  Folks this side of the pond give me funny looks when I mention "chicken fried".  Fine job on the meal and a great looking place you have there.  Keep Smokin!

  17. Yesser Bear, great looking food, as usual, and more nice views of the Homestead, Thanks for sharing!

    Thank You!!

    I just clean it good before every smoke, so it doesn't bake on.

    I learned with my wood stove glass that if you let it cool & then heat it again, without cleaning it, the crap gets baked on good & hard.

    If you clean it before it gets heated again, it's a lot easier.

    Thanks Red!!

    Been about 8 or 10 years since I last kicked up dust when mowing here.

    Already mowed 19 times this season!! The last time I mowed, the temp here never got up to 70* that day.

    Thank You!!

    We can't find this kind of ribs either.

    These were cut from my last score of Prime Rib roasts.

    LOL----We actually have had 3 beautiful days like this in a row (without rain!).
