    I wanted to try some boneless beef ribs on the drum. I do these a lot over a fire, but wanted to try them on the drum, then seared over the fire like a steak.

    I just rubbed them with olive oil, then sprinkled with kosher salt and pepper.



    Heated up my drum...



    Smoked them with some potatoes at a temperature of 225 for 1 hour...



    Sliced my potatoes, dipped them in beer batter and fried...



    The ribs were cooked in 1 hour so I skipped the fire sear..



    Sprinkled the batter fried potatoes with some homemade seasoned salt...
    Cubed the ribs......





    My company went through it pretty fast and I didn't hear them complain.





    Thanks for checking out my finger food supper. :)

    As always...great looking.

    So did you just use a knife and cut the meat off the ribs? Or did you buy it like that?
    I've never had battered fried potatoes. How are they? They sound tasty.

    Looks like a good Friday night with a couple of beers, some friends and some tasty morsels.

    Points for sure.

    The boneless short ribs are cut from the 'middle chuck' - below the blade bone but above the eye of the chuck.

    Thank you AZ, Pops, Laurel, Joe, Rich and Rivet!
    The ribs and taters went pretty well with that cold beer. :)
     
  15. I just showed this post to my neighbor and asked what he thought. He said "How about next weekend?" I said Yep! We'll be having about 11 people here so this will be fun to do.

    Thanks for the post and the pics.

    Nice job Jeanie. I shy away from boneless ribs since I figure they are just chuck, not like there is anything wrong with that.

    Yours look fantastic. I love the taters. I learn something new with your posts
