Texas-Style Barbecued Beef Ribs
Why This Recipe Works
When developing our barbecued beef ribs recipe, we wondered what to do with the fatty membrane that runs along the backside of the beef ribs. As it turned out, we achieved the best results—the juiciest meat with the most flavor—through the simplest means: leaving the fat in place, to baste the ribs as they cooked. We determined that the ideal cooking temperature for our beef ribs recipe was a range of 250 to 300 degrees and the ideal time was about 2 1/2 hours, which caused some, but not all, of the fat to render, making the ribs juicy, tender, and slightly toothy.
