    Those look just friggin' wonderful and I wish I had a huge plate of them in front of me right now! I've ate a few pork spare ribs but I've never had beef ribs.

      They look absolutely fabulous, and I'd go for them in a split second.  Amazingly, I can't find a restaurant anywhere in my area that serves beef ribs.  I don't understand it.

          Great looking ribs!  Makes me think of Texas where beef ribs are very popular.  Seems like other places only know about the pork ones.  I like both but for my money, beef ribs have more flavor and more meat to gnaw than pork ribs.

                If you could do 21 of mine, you belong in the Eating Hall of Fame, 4-5 and I'm pretty much done, and I can easily eat 2 of my 1/2 lb cheeseburgers at a sitting. The Beef ribs are hard to find, ones with enough meat on them, that is, I always eyeball the delivery and frequently send them back, when I get good ones it's "Katie bar the door"!

                  Very impressive.
                   
                  I may have to do some next Saturday.

                      Tom, Those do look good. However when I have ordered Beef Ribs at Louie Muellers, or have seen the Beef Ribs served at that BBQ on Venice Beach in L A (on TV), the Rib has a lot of meat along the top for the length of the bone (like a part of the 'Prime Rib' was left on the bone when it was trimmed.
                      Your Racks look like the bones I get at our local market now and then. They label them BEEF SOUP BONES at sell them for 89 cents a pound !!!  Needless to say, whenever I see them I buy all they have.  We enjoyed two racks for our Sunday dinner yesterday.
                      Did you find yours to be a bit fatty in the 'inbetween' areas???
                       
                      Mellow Roast-  I remember those AYCE Beef Rib offers at Sizzler (in SoCal) back in the 80's and 90's. I think I made them cry a couple of times. I never kept a tally, but I know I took home 5 doggie bags of bones one time. My dogs were very happy for days.

                        Al, they are suprisingly meaty, packed by IBP, called "extra meaty" on the box they come in, I have to special order them a week in advance. I've sent more Beef Ribs back to my suppliers over the years due to the fact my dogs would have been disappointed with the amount of meat on them. Performance Food Group supplies me now, really good products and service. Also the dear to our hearts, COSTCO, gets a weekly visit from me, I get my Babybacks and whole chickens, and a bunch of other stuff from them, I figure I save enough buying at COSTCO, to pay for my Chevy Van.

                              Thanks. I have an indirect wood smoker/BBQ machine which I typically cook at 225 for various meats. I'll cook the beef ribs at 275 for three hours and bring down to 225 for the rest of the grub. Would you "foil" the beef ribs after 3 hours? Thanks. Although, regrettably, I have not mastered the picture thing, I'll give a report. Again, thanks.

                                Mayor Al -- I really miss those rib buffets.  We don't have Sizzlers anymore around here, and those are fun memories.

                                  Chewingthefat: Don't know if I could still do it now, but I'd certainly like to give it a try with the ribs you posted here.

                                      Sorry, missed your question first time, but no, we don't have the proper vacuuming equipment, to properly do delivery like that! At this time!!

                                        I love all that CRUST on your beef ribs...
                                        but they do look narrow on the meat part...
                                        (but, that's cool, cuz I'd have plenty of fun chewing on the crust !)

                                          Hey Chewy,
                                           
                                          Weis Markets had beef ribs for $1.49 per pound today so I gave them a try.  This is the first time I tried beef ribs.  I gave the a light rub with Dinosaur Cajun Foreplay and gave them a light bath(vinegar and ketchup) about 1/2 hour before taking them off the smoker.  They were fantastic, very meaty.
                                           


                                          I cut them up before smoking,good or bad idea?

                                            Al,
                                             
                                            When I smoke beef ribs, I use whole plate short ribs.  They have the meat on them that I like and smoke up very nicely.  Here is a pic of them.

                                              The only time I foil anything is after the internal temp is where I want it, and I'm pulling the product from the Smoker.

                                                Where's Ellen ???

                                                Here I AM !  (a little late to the party , lol )
                                                I love all that CRUST on your beef ribs...
                                                but they do look narrow on the meat part...
                                                (but, that's cool, cuz I'd have plenty of fun chewing on the crust !)

                                                p.s. all of a sudden, my computer is putting spaces inbetween my sentences...double spacing me !


                                                Spaced out?? 
                                                Seriously Ellen, my guess is that you could eat 3, MAYBE 4 ribs before you were full!
                                                The picture is misleading in that way.

                                                  Hey Chewy,

                                                  Weis Markets had beef ribs for $1.49 per pound today so I gave them a try.  This is the first time I tried beef ribs.  I gave the a light rub with Dinosaur Cajun Foreplay and gave them a light bath(vinegar and ketchup) about 1/2 hour before taking them off the smoker.  They were fantastic, very meaty.



                                                  I cut them up before smoking,good or bad idea?

                                                  Bad idea, it lets the juice escape, that said Joe, they look great!

                                                    They look great, 2 might do the trick.

                                                          Joerogo!  Do you just wrap your plate setter or do you have a dish under that foil?
                                                           
                                                          Also, what temp did you hold to egg at and for how long?  Those ribs look excellent!

                                                            Joerogo!  Do you just wrap your plate setter or do you have a dish under that foil?

                                                            Also, what temp did you hold to egg at and for how long?  Those ribs look excellent!

                                                             
                                                            mar52, I used heavy duty foil on top of the plate setter.  When I'm done smokin I just fold it up and throw it away.  I normally use aluminum pizza pans, but I was out. 
                                                             
                                                            I put the ribs on when the Egg reached 200 degrees, then let it go up to 300 degree before I backed it down to about 225.  I let them go for 3 1/2 hours.  Let me tell you, they were really good.
                                                             
                                                            Oh, I also used some chunks of apple wood.
