Are you ready to embark on a smoky flavor adventure? Look no further than the majestic dino bone beef ribs! I recently got my hands on a massive rack of these succulent beef plate ribs from Porter Road, and let me tell you, they were practically begging to be smoked. With their rich marbling and loaded flavor, these ribs are a true carnivore’s delight.
Simple Preparation, Supreme Results
Trimming off the excess fat from the surface, I kept the preparation minimalistic to let the natural beef flavor shine through. My secret weapon? A generous dusting of my signature Texas-style rub on the top side of the ribs. Trust me, the combination of the beef’s natural goodness and the irresistible flavors of the rub is a match made in smoked meat heaven.
Preparing the perfect dino bone beef ribs takes time and patience, but the end results are well worth it. Here’s what you need to know:
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 5-6 hours
- Smoker Temp: 225°F/275°F
- Meat Finish Temp: 201-203°F
- Recommended Wood: Oak, maple, cherry mix
The Art of Fat Marbling
While it’s not mandatory, removing excess fat from the ribs can enhance the final result. If you choose to do so, carefully use a sharp knife to trim off small bits at a time until you’re satisfied with the level of marbling.
Before and After
To give you a glimpse of the transformation, take a look at the majestic before and after shots. The tantalizing aroma and mouthwatering appearance will make your taste buds tingle with anticipation.
The Rub Magic
After applying the Texas-style rub, I let the flavors meld for about 20 minutes. The rub mixed with the meat’s natural juices, creating a delectable paste that ensures every bite is bursting with irresistible taste.
Time to let the real magic happen. Placing the ribs on a rack inside a pan, I ensured the meat is surrounded by smoke from all sides. This not only reduces cleaning time on the smoker but also allows for easy transportation.
The Perfect Temperature
Set up your smoker for cooking at around 225°F with indirect heat. Most smokers are designed this way, with a plate or water pan between the heat and the meat. If your smoker uses a water pan, fill it up to maintain the ideal cooking environment.
For the first 4 hours, I ran my trusty Camp Chef Woodwind Wifi with Pit Boss Competition Blend pellets on High Smoke mode. This maintained an average temperature of 220°F, with minimal fluctuations. The steady heat ensures the ribs are infused with smoky goodness.
After 4 hours, the beef ribs reached an internal temperature of 160°F in the thickest part between the bones. It’s time to take it up a notch.
Meet the Braising Process
Pouring 8 ounces of beef broth into a foil pan, I placed the ribs inside and covered them tightly with foil. The temperature was cranked up to 275°F, creating a braising effect that yields irresistibly tender meat.
The Final Touch
Now, every rack of ribs is unique, so it’s essential to keep an eye on them. After about an hour covered, check the temperature to gauge progress. At the desired internal temperature range of 201-203°F, the ribs are tender and ready to be devoured.
The Grand Finale
Remove the ribs from the smoker and let them rest in a cooler for at least an hour. This resting period allows the flavors to settle, ensuring a melt-in-your-mouth experience like no other. Slice the ribs right between the bones and serve them to your eagerly awaiting guests.
