Thanks to Groundhog66, I finally found some racks of beef ribs with some meat on them:

(more like a rack and 2/3 as one of them was short a couple of ribs).

I put a little L&P worcestershire sauce on both racks and then a combo of The Rub Co's Santa Maria Style & Original rubs on the top rack. For the lower rack, I used Carl's Gourmet Products Prime Rib & Roast seasoning.

A couple of hours later I put them on the Egg and here they are about 90 minutes into the cook:

and at 3 hrs:

the "Carl's" rack was done:

the "Rub Co" rack with the bigger meatier bones stayed on for about 20 more minutes:

and were then removed:

The ribs enjoyed a brief rest while I grilled up some ginger & garlic butter flavored corn:

I cut into the ribs and put together a plate for my wife:

My rub test revealed that the Carl's rub should be applied sparingly as that rack came out too salty for our tastes (admittedly we like less salt than most folks). The Rub Co ribs kicked b*tt! The Rub Co combo seems to excel on any piece of cow and I suspect it'd even make a cow patty taste good! (No, I won't be cookin' or eatin' cow patties).

Those are the beefiest beef ribs I have ever seen. I ones I get round here look like someone took a razor and cleaned all red meat from the bones. My dog loves the leftovers though. How much per pound?

The beef ribs I normally see at most stores look pretty close to what you've described and I pass on them as there's only enough meat to tease you with the taste and leave you frustrated. For that reason, it has been about 2 years since I last cooked beef ribs!

These cost $2.99/lb which I wouldn't pay for the "nearly-meatless" variety but for meaty ones like these, I will.

Nice beast ribs John. Making me hungry right now!! May I ask where you picked up these beauties? Like most the ones I've seen in the local markets are pretty pathetic especially for the price they're asking.

There's a Beef Rib Throwdown (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=114147) going on right now so don't be surprised if the local Brethren are tight-lipped on this until it ends on Sunday night!

I can say it wasn't any major grocery chain and certainly not Walmart. :-D

Those look great John and I want some really bad..


Well, today I tried to bribe a butcher at our local meat market to cut me a rack with a lot of meat on them. Smart alec says "Pay me $12.49 a pound and I'll cut'em as meaty as you want." Right, that was their price for bone in rib eye.....
Oh, well. I'm still searching.

Those are pretty ribs. The ones I usually see look like I had already eaten them. I did find some pretty Beef ribs at Sams recently, but they weren't in the budget. ( Retirements hell. )
