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.
