Beef short ribs... much meatier and cook a lot like brisket. I like beef back ribs too, but there is no comparison.

I prefer short ribs. They are super meaty and the flavor is brisket on a stick.

I have smoked beef back ribs twice. I wasn't happy each time because there was so little meat on the bones.

Shorties, no question. If I see a good meaty rack of back ribs I'll snag 'em but that's a very rare occurrence. Short ribs are my favorite cut of beef these days.

Default Both

Beef back hanging in the Pit Barrel Cooker most of the time going forward. Took me 6 hours to probe tender on these super meaty short ribs yesterday. Both are awesome. Just takes a rack of beef to make a meal. 2'45" tops on Dino bones hanging in PBC.

Shortys - Same reasons as above, plus they're really good value for money over here!

Yes, short ribs for sure. You get a lot of meat and it's super flavorful and juicy.
