Doin some plate ribs tomorrow night


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I don't usually do beef ribs. I did some olive fed wagyu when I first got my smoker but I didn't cook em hot enough for long enough and they weren't very good. I got an almost 6 lb angus block from wildforks. I was gonna use the below hey grill hey recipe with my own rub and spritz but I' am torn between foiling a pan or using butchers. I would like better bark but it's sooo much easier to put things in a foil pan and foil the top vs taking out and wrapping in paper thoughts? I also wanted to use that wagyu tallow so what would the mix in the pan or paper be with that? Thanks for lookin will post the cook.

Have only cooked beef ribs a handful of times myself but always wrap in butchers paper. Never used tallow but it seems to be the done thing nowadays.

I never remove the membrane myself, helps to keep the ribs together and is perfectly edible.

This is worth a watch if you’ve got 10 mins to spare.

Look forward to seeing the end result!

Here's a Jacob's Ladder I did a few of weeks ago on the WSM. No injecting, spritzing, wrapping, boating, saucing or mopping. I believe quality meat doesn't need it. (But I'm not competition cooking). Just a generous sprinkling of SPOG, and into the fridge overnight. (I don't use commercial rubs. Far too much salt, sugar and other stuff in them, and to be honest I can't tell much of a difference with them anyway). I keep everything as simple as possible and try not over-think it. Just my 0.02p.....YMMV.

Took 9.5hrs at 250f-275f to an IT of 195f, (it did stall for about 3hrs but I just let it do its thing. All good). Crispy bark on top, succulent middle section, and a bit of tug off the bone for the rib meat. There were no complaints.
