Maybe a little too meaty. I smoked them for 6 hours @ ~250*. The were good. Steak on a stick. Texture was closer to steak than fall apart beef ribs. Luckily I got another package of them in the fridge to keep practicing on.[/QUOTE]
I love the plate / short ribs from RD. I think you'll like them better cooked a little hotter. (275-300). The fat renders a little better. Biggest mistake I made when first doing these was under cooking them. They should probe VERY tender when done.
