need help with beef ribs

Had a guy call and wants me to cook brisket and beef ribs for 50 people. I've got the brisket down but haven't done beef ribs but once on a small offset with poor results. Got a Lang 84 now, using hickory, white oak and apple, need some guidance on the ribs. All help appreciated.

Re: need help with beef ribs

I can't help but I'm interested in seeing some posts on this. I was in the Restaurant Depot the other day and they had a special on Black Angus beef ribs. I was tempted to try some but I only have a WSM. Those ribs looked mighty big.

I'm sure you're going to get some help with this from someone here. Good luck.

Re: need help with beef ribs

Finding a rack of beef ribs with plenty of meat is difficult. They shrink up a lot. Beef short ribs may be a better choice.

We do them all the time, never have any problems with them. Fall off the bone and melt in ur mouth delicious. This video uses an oven, but follow the exact same method for the smoker.
