I saw these in the store and bought 3 packs. The price was so low I thought if all else fails I can make broth but I since learned from some Youtubes that these are awesome if cooked like a brisket. There's probably as much bones as meat but it's that good ribeye meat you get when you cook a bone in rib roast. Low and slow for 2.5 hours then wrap and another 1.5 and finally unwrapped for a little more color and set the crust. Guess what I'm doing now?

Heck, Rajun - you folks down in your neck of the woods can make racoon taste good. . . Although, I'd like to see the finished product and hear how they turned out.  The price is right !!!

Thanks!  We do like to eat good food!!!

 

Change of cook times based on the size, they were cut so it's gonna be a shorter cook. I had to run out for a while and the temp spiked to 275°. The meat is pulling away from the bones a little so I wrapped, I added some beef broth mixed with a little soy and Worcestershire in the foil. Probably only an 1/8 cup to start the steaming process. 

 

It was all I could do not to chew on at least one bone, it smells like a prime rib cooking.

Looking Good!  I did some a few weeks back.  Usually smoke pork ribs, but the beefers go on the grill.  Man, now I'm hungry again!

Those thin ones, if they seem tough, just add a braising liquid to the foil and braise them a bit, like crock potting on the grill... then sear in the end...

They were wrapped for an hour and then set on the grill to crisp up a little.

Took them inside and let rest for 20 minutes before slicing them

These came out great!! Beef Goodness is all I can say. Tender and juicy!! I had to eat one before fixing a plate and I'm surprised how much meat these bones had on them.

I really didn't plan sides so I went with boxed fettuccine and a salad, tomatoes from the greenhouse.

I will be buying these again, tomorrow I'm hitting the store and buying out the display if they still have them.

I used a handful of hickory chips. in the beginning. I'm impressed with this cheap meat, I don't think people know how good this is.

This CoonA$$ (with fondness) has presented a beautiful dinner, one after my own heart I might add.  Transparently, I've never been able to get the beef ribs tender enough from the grill.  I need to look up the brazing thing.

Here's how I cook these ribs via a side cut. . .  Dang good eating - dang expensive eating.  I think I pay 7.00 for 4 of these.  Make them asy to marinade - but the cost differential is huge.

Here's all you need to know for tender beef, He's my man crush on smoking. All of his stuff looks awesome.

Okay, bro - this is a good vid.  I will try this weekend, however, I'm thinking the stores around here have learned to make more money with those side cuts.  Heck, they sell Kobi beef under the name Wagyu.  Getting reasonably priced meat near a megapolis like Houston - cost more to drive and find it.

Don't you have a HEB or Fiesta market there? Find a Mexican store or Asian market and see what they have. Just some thoughts but you probably need to plan a trip to buy meat and load up when you find a deal.

 

I'm sure some Texas guys will chime in on where to score good deals.

You have to go to the butcher and ask for plate ribs. If you really want dinosaur ribs. Each rib is like a steak. You cook 1-2 at a time that's how big they are.

Very, very good read - dang, I learned a bunch more than I "thought" I knew. . .  If you go by the marbling, you can get a prime cut that is comparable and a whole bunch more affordable than the Wagyu.  Now that I know what it means - Japanese cow. . . . LOL  Sorry folks, halfway in to this response - I will try the Fiesta - the HEB, while real good, is very expensive.  I don't know how they do things, demography or whatever to bring in certain meats and prices as well.  But Fiesta would probably have the goods.
