Well, they sure do look good from here. You thought just OK.?

Boshizzle 02-17-2013 09:22 PM

They look good to me!

landarc 02-17-2013 09:26 PM

Looks like good food. What was just ok? Or does okay really mean great?

They were tender and juicy but not much taste.I guess I should have used more/stronger wood and more rub.First time,I got a bunch left to practice on.Thanks.

Just O.K. Not sure what I was expecting.Like I say,first time to try them.I would much rather gnaw the bone of a rare,bone in rib roast! Live and learn.

I view it like the point in brisket. It can be incredible, but, it needs good spicing and smoke.

Hoss those look great!! Beef ribs are my favorite. :grin:

Agreed.Next time I will bump up the smoke and the amount of rub.Thanks.

Good cook there man! :icon_smile_tongue:

They look really good, but yeah, hitting those pretty hard with smoke is a good thing. You're happy with the tenderness, and that seems to be what gives most people trouble, so you should have 'em just about perfect on yer next cook. :clap2:

Looks good, Hoss. I felt the same way when I made beef ribs the first time. If you don't mind me asking, where in the area did you find beef ribs with so much meat on them? Also, a couple of weeks ago you did some bacon. Where did you get the pork bellies?

Thanks

I got the bellies off of 2 pigs I bought over in Walnut,MS.The beef ribs came off of 2,1100 lb Jersey steers we raised on our farm and had slaughtered down in Corinth earlier this year.Home grown hogs/pigs are hard to come by around here anymore.

fr8erfxr 02-17-2013 10:08 PM

Thanks! The store bought beef ribs I've bought have no meat on them. I've been wanting to try to make bacon, so I've been searching for the bellies.

Your best bet for fresh pork bellies at a reasonable price is an Asian themed market in Memphis.
