Beef Ribs

I was watching JB's beef ribs video on youtube. Man those look good. I've never had beef ribs, are they any good compared to pork? Do you cook em any different?

Good beef ribs are a real blessing..but it hard to find good ones in most places. If you got good ones you can just cooke em like a bone in steak where the steak is missing.

Well back from where I come from po white trash was not allowed to eat oxtails for some reason..so I aint never ate any but I seen folks cooking them on TV and they do look good. The old Frugal Prevert was into em purty heavy on his show. I would think that old tail would be purty muscular. I beat it be mo betta to make ox tail soup out of it. Or you could grill it for a while and break out the infamous New Yawk crutch...aka..shudder..tinfoil and a can of Campbells beef broth. Then just cook it till it dies and gives up. That should work. Just guessing of course. Thataway you could just eat the meat and chunk out the soup. Smart thinning Senor Quicks Draw

My grandparents used to make oxtail soup...back when they were cheap (the oxtails not my grandparents...) ...now that are a tad pricey....and as far as the old TEXUS crutch...this Yankee only use foil to rest my meat..
I'm thinking I'm going to give them a whirl some day...Hell I'll smoke just about anything....Seems like those tough muscualr "cuts" of meat respond best to the low and slow...and them tails look to be pretty fatty...

Very tasty, but not as meaty. Plan on cooking twice as much as opposed to pork, in my opinion.

Ox tail is good stuff... Jerk seasoning works well.

Back to beef ribs. Buy a whole bone in rib roast, trim it Youself & leave as much meatby the bone as like.. Boy & they don't take any longer to cook by weight than pork ribs. Just make sure you get at least 1\2 inch of pullback on the small end of the bones
