Choice Center Cut Beef Back Ribs, corn and some eggs on the weber kettle (think choice means , not much of a choice since there was only 2 in the cooler).

Beef ribs here have the "sweet meat" pre scraped out at the packer and these were cut above the scraped out section so I thought I'd try 'em.

Light sprinkle of Lawry's seasoned salt, Montreal steak seasoning, Kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper.

Offset on Weber kettle, 3 hrs at 275, 1.25 hr foiled with some drippings and apple juice, 45 min for Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ sauce.

Eggs and corn about 2 hrs also offset. Mostly oak smoke.

Came out OK, eggs were about the same as hard boiled on stove except for the shells turned brown and are harder to peel but there is not another pot to clean :icon_bigsmil.

Thanks for looking.

The eggs were just like any hard boiled egg except for a very light smoke flavor near the big end where the shell was the darker brown part of the shell. I should have rotated them earlier to get more equal color coverage.

I noticed that it was harder to get the shell off verses regular hard boiled eggs. The eggs were far away from the coals, the grate temp under the ribs was 260-270, dome vent was around 325.

I like not having to clean another pot. Since this is so easy, I will do it again.:eusa_clap

Thanks to all for the comments:!: :-D

Love 'dem beefers,
those look great and bet they tasted even better.

(never seen "center cut" round these parts, could ya taste a difference over regular beef ribs?)

Full size Beef ribs around here have the "sweet meat" between the rib bones pre-scraped out at the packer (was told they grind that meat into hamburger) and these were just cut above the scraped out section so I thought I'd try 'em.

I would like to try "regular beef ribs" but no store near me has them without the scraping already done and they look to me like all bone and fat and not worth what they charge for them scraped...:icon_pissed

So, I can only guess that they would taste the same as regular ribs that had not been scraped.

Everything looks fantastic!


I noticed that it was harder to get the shell off verses regular hard boiled eggs.

Much harder, the first (and only) time I tried smoked eggs, we ended up peeling almost as much egg as shell (and no,they weren't overcooked. Yolk stayed bright yellow.) :mad: IMO, The smidgen of smoke flavor (and the lack of one pan to clean) wasn't worth the frustration.

Mine were not as bad as yours to peel. I should add that after the last 2 eggs were in the frig, they peeled much eaiser.
