    I've bean seeing a lot here lately about short ribs and just had to try them. To get an uncut 4 bone slab I had to order them and have been trying all week to decide how to do them.
    What I came up with is to cut into 2 pieces and prepare 2 different ways.
    One 2 bone piece got slathered with thick wooshy and SPOG and soaked for 3 hours and the other just got kosher salt, course pepper and a little garlic powder right on the meat.
    Put them in at 8:45am. It's only 37 degrees out, but we're smoking! I'm using Hickory chips and Ash chunks, BTW.

    The same here, Old School. $6 something a lb.You're looking at a $29 piece of meat, and roughly half of it bones. Beef is just unbelievable in your and my neck of the woods. Heck, if I see grnd chuck for under $4 a lb. I stock up! This was a splurge because I really wanted to try it. If I crash and burn I'm going to eat it anyway...

    OK, I'm a happy camper. They were ready to come out at 5:00. I didn't realise short ribs could " stall ". They can!
    Frankly I don't see much difference between the two preps.
    They both taste great. Waiting now to see what kind of sides the Mrs. comes up with. So happy I didn't crash & burn.:sausage:yahoo:
