The great beef rib experiment is underway. Since this is the first time we have done the "dinosaur bones" I'll keep track of the process and update as we go along.
I've heard plus and minus about keeping the membrane on. Being lazy, I decided to leave it on this time. As usual, we had to trim the slabs down just a tad to fit in our little bullet water smoker. Excess blood was washed off then the meat side got a light dowsing in soy sauce. North Main BBQ All "N" 1 steak seasoning was added generously. Then into the smoker with hot charcoal and a good pile of pecan and oak wood. Start time was about 12:35 pm.
Samples were delicious, but still a bit chewy.
1 hour in and the beef ribs are tendering up nicely. Still a ways to go. I'm going to give them one more hour wrapped at 250 in the oven.
