beef back ribs

On Monday, shortly after we got back from our trip to CA and AZ, I went to the store to get milk and stuff, and they had one package of beef back ribs, 2.30 lb @ $2.49/lb, so I grabbed it. I've been meaning to try beef ribs for a long time, I just never see them.

I stripped off the bone-side membrane, wetted them down with Worcestershire and rubbed with Dizzy Pig's Cow Lick Steak Rub (no sugar). The ribs were on the WSM for about 3 1/2 hrs @ ~240° before I sauced them. I used an unusual smoke mix, hickory plus the mesquite wood that's in the KF charcoal my neighbor gave me. (Gotta use free charcoal sometime.) I sauced with Head Country original, which I like because of its good balance for a ketchup-based sauce (not too- anything; I don't like sticky-sweet sauces).

The ribs were real good. We also had acorn squash and tomatoes fresh from the garden. (We didn't plant the squash, the vine just appeared and we left it to see what it'd be. ) I think the ribs would have been okay with as much as another half hour in the smoker, but they were very tender and juicy. And flavorful.

Ribs look very good John.

I lost my source for Head Country. I think it would make a good base for many blends.
