Default Beef Short Ribs

I'm about to smoke some beef short ribs, wanted to know what you guys think...should I smoke them whole or cut the ribs and smoke them individually? I would think keeping them together will be better, not as dry, but I could be wrong. It's happened before, according to the wife

This is a bark issue.

I would keep them whole, as the meat inside will be better.

Some would separate them, as the bark outside will be more.

Cook them whole for sure.

Then I treat them the same as pork ribs when they are done.
I cut them to individual bones, dust the cut sides with rub, and throw them on the grill for a couple of minutes per cut side.
Fantastic flavor "Pop" from the rub and extra char.

Great Eats!
