Yeah buy them... Cook them the same and look for the one without the meat cut out from between them.. They are done when the grease stops dripping and the tear apart easy... JB is the Fred Flinstone Rib guy around here. He has many videos of cooking those too.....

I've never done beef ribs before and am thinking about giving it a try this weekend.

Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

That's a good price if they're meaty. You want to look for meaty ribs and not all bone showing. In most cases, they will be overly trimmed at what are called "Shiners". They'll have enough meat to eat, but would be nice if they had more.

Splash with worcestershire sauce, then rub with your favorite rub if you have one, if not salt, pepper and garlic powder work great.

I like to cook them using a 3-2-1 method, commonly used for pork spare ribs as well. 3 hours in the smoke, 2 hours in foil, then another hour to firm up and sauce. Make sure you remove the membrane too.

Hope this helps!

What Larry said but no horsyshire (unless ya like it) foil aint needed for beef ribs due to the area of the cut, I like to use Wolfe rub & no sauce at the end. serve sauce on the side. You don't have to cook em to death either. they can be eaten rare or med rare but they will have lots of grease still in em. Cook to med & thats it, pull em & keep warm till eatin time

You must be eatin' the young lean tender cows. Sure they can be eaten med rare, but who can chew 'em?

Can nearly ghurahntee if them beef ribs come from Albertsons they gonna work best as soup bones. I been shopping in them stores for 25 years and aint never seen a passable set of beef ribs in any of the stores. Now Sam Kane meat packers down at Corpus has good big old thick and meaty beef ribs..yum yum. You got any chopping rights out there Sapo?

Yall do know ya kin buy a whole bone in ribeye rack & butcher out the ribs as meaty as you want..... BOY!.
I would go to a slaughter house & tell the cutter you want an untrimmed ribeye rack, The will cut some of the bone/meat off if you don't tell em not to.
They sell the cut off parts as short ribs. I have also seen them labled as beef baby back ribs

More reading,
Look close to the bottom of the page under plate
