    Prime Rib Roast, Smoked Ribs

    I got some rub from my Son, that was made by a Buddy of his.

    These Ribs came from 70 pounds of Prime Rib ($4.99 per pound) I got cut up into a few different items.
    This is half of the bones (7 pounds) from that score.

    After thawing, removing the membrane, rinsing, and drying, I coated all pieces on both sides with Worcestershire (Thick).
    Then I coated them all with Rub.
    I wrapped all pieces in plastic wrap, and put in fridge.

    10:00 AM--------Rub All Ribs, and put in fridge.
    10:45 AM--------Pre-heat MES 40 to 225˚.
    11:45 AM--------Fill 1 1/4 rows of my 5 X 11 AMNS with Hickory Dust, and light one end.
    11:55 AM--------Put Ribs on top two shelves of MES 40, and put AMNS on bottom bars.
    3:00 PM----------Put all Ribs in foil pan (on wire rack), add 8 ounces of Apple Juice, and cover with foil.
    4:20 PM----------Kill heat, but leave Ribs in smoker.
    4:45 PM----------Remove Ribs from smoker.
    5:00 PM----------Cut up & plate Ribs with sides-----------EAT !!!!!!

    Results: Ribs were all excellent. They were not fall off the bone, but very juicy & tender.

    The ribs were even better the next day, when I trimmed all the meat from the bones, and added some of the Au Jus I saved from the foil pan.
    I also had just the right amount of leftover Roasted Reds & Broccoli to go with it. Some of the leftover meat from the ribs is in the freezer, with some Au Jus for a later date.
    Sorry---No pics of my left-overs meal.

    Thanks for looking,

    Nice bark........nice pull back on the bone, great looking ribs!
  4. when removing the membrane how did u keep your ribs from falling off the bone while smoking..?? i cant for the life of me keep the bone attached to the meat if i take that skin off the back. especially with beef. its almost a must for me to keep the membrane on there or else ill open the smoker up and just see pieces of meat with bones layin on the grate beside looks great tho bear! thanks for sharing.. :)

    Mmm...the ribs look outstanding, Bear!  Very nicely done!

  6. Thats a mighty fine looking plate . 
  7. I have never had that problem and i always remove the membrane .I suspect the meat is fall off the bone tender.I like mine to stay on the bone after each bite.Try not to foil as long that should help.

    Thanks David!!!

    Thanks Todd !

    Thanks T & B !!!

    I always had trouble getting fall off the bone ribs, when I wanted to. I usually have to go foiled for at least 2 1/2 hours.

    3-2-1 never gets me fall off the bone.

    Awesome Bear!!! Those ribs look so nice and meaty with a nice crusty bark. I bet they were really yummy!

  11. I never use foil bear. I just let them do their things. More times than most I'll open up the door and see bones sitting on the grates. Lol. Hence the leaving of the membrane on the back. yours look Great tho! Excellent work my friend!
  12. Those look incredible- so does $4.99/lb......  I just drooled into my keyboard........

    Thank You Suie!!!

    Thanks T & B !!!

    Now that's funny-----You don't foil, trying not to get Fall-off-the-bone, and I foil trying to get FOTB.

    Then you get FOTB, and I don't.

    I always remove the membrane, because often times it falls apart on the meat, especially Beef, and that stuff is disgusting!!!

  15. That is pretty funny. I can get the same thing with pretty much anything I smoke nowadays. I can take a rack of BB's and flip em so the backside is facing me and flick the bones out with ease, literally just a flick of my finger will knock the bones clean out. Lol. Maybe I should start using foil. Haha.:sausage:
