    I call them T-Rex because I really have not seen a rack of beef ribs this big before.......I got them from a friend who works for a Rancher of Grass-Fed beef.

    1. Length - Small Piece

    2. Width - Small Piece

    3. Small Piece Rubbed on top

    4. Width - Large Piece

    5, Long end - Large Piece

    6. Short End - Large Piece

    7. Both Pieces Rubbed and Wrapped Overnight

    8. Both pieces after 3-3-1

    Ended up excellent........really tender and very flavorful. My friends and family feasted on this for hours and we still had a lot of leftovers.

    I hope I get more of these soon.

    You can say that again.

    There were 8 of us and we tore through the small piece really quickly. We ended up getting through about a third of the way through the big piece. Which left us with about 3 bones worth.

    looks good!

    how would you describe the texture with 3-3-1? Was it almost fall off the bone?

    Very tender with a slight pull?

    Now those are some really good looking ribs you have there Harry. Did they call them short ribs or something like that for I found some at restaurant depot and they were labeled short ribs. Thye came out really good too.
    See for yourself. I did them twice now and have one good rack left. The first time I did them with the 3-2-1 system and they were good. But the second time I did them to temp and they were even better and alot more tender. I took them too 200° internal temp.

    The small piece was almost fall off the bone. The big piece was tender-tuggable....

    I gave a piece to the Rancher and he loved it, so I'll be in for more ribs soon!
