First time grilling Australian Grain Fed Beef Ribs on the Big Green Egg! Grilling season 2020 is open!
A couple of weeks ago I bought Australian Grain Fed Beef Ribs at Makro.
I never prepared Beef Ribs before on the Egg but have watched a ton of videos about how to cook them on youtube for years.
To open the grilling season 2020 I decided to prepare them today.
I got up early and fired up the green egg around 10 am.
While it was heating up I prepared the beef ribs. I went for a light mustard coating and a 50/50 coarse pepper/salt rub.
Added some smoking wood to the egg and put in the conveggtor plate. Put in a water pan. Temp steady at 110 Celcius. Time: 11am.
After 4 hours I opened the grill. Measured temp 71c. I decided to wrap the ribs in aluminum foil for the rest of the cook.
6 hours into the cook the temp reached 93-94 degrees and I took them off.
Wrapped them in a cloth (with the foil) and stuck them in a cooler to rest for 1.5 hours.
At 6:30 pm it was time to eat. I took the ribs from the cooler and unwrapped them.
I was very happy how they turned out for the first time. A nice smoke ring and all the fat had rendered nicely.
The taste, incredible!
It was more than enough for me and Bianca. These ribs are intense and fill you up rapidly.
Things to improve on for next time is the bark. I like the salt/pepper combo because it's clean and you can taste the meat but spreading the rub more evenly should result in a more even bark next time. I also wanna add a bit more heat, I think that could work well. Maybe some Cayenne.
But all in all, these things are not to be scared of anymore. Very doable! It takes time and patience but 100% worth it.
