Hickory Smoked Beef Ribs n Beer

Pretty simple meal...
I slathered the beef ribs in bacon drippings, sprinkled with cracked black pepper and kosher salt, then onto the smoker with hickory until the pull back on the bone was just how I like it. :)





I forgot to mention... the outside air temperature was 9 degrees F. I set the Memphis Pro to 325F and it worked perfectly! I was very happy with the way it handled the cold weather. :)





I brushed one rack with some Boot Kickin' Q sauce...










I couldn't think of a side dish sooooo it was just beef ribs, beer and lots of napkins!

Beef ribs, bacon and beer...these are a few of my favorite things...

marc said...

Side dish? Don't I see a sprig of cilantro on the plate? That looks like a good side dish for the beef ribs to me.

Drew @ How To Cook Like Your Grandmother said...

Side dish? What's that?

Nick said...

Those look great Jeanie. Mind sharing approximate time and temp?

Thanks, Nick

Big Dude said...

Looks like a good side dish to me. I have a rack of ribs that I cut off a rib roast and I'm looking forward to getting into them.

cowgirl said...

Hahaha... Rawtalent! Now I have that song stuck in my head. I like your version best though.
Thanks!

cowgirl said...

Marc, I like the way you think. :)
lol Thanks!

cowgirl said...

Drew...that's what I was thinking. I had a rib in one hand and a frosty mug in the other. There was no room for a silly side dish! lol
Thanks Drew!

cowgirl said...

Thank you Nick!! I didn't pay close attention to the time but set the Memphis Pro at 325F. The outside air temperature was 9 degrees and I wanted to see how the Pro would handle the cold weather.
It worked perfectly!!
I removed the ribs when the pull-back on the bone was about 1 1/4 inches.

Hope that makes sense Nick!

Thank you, hope you are keeping warm! :)

cowgirl said...

Thanks Larry! Your rib rack sounds great! Hope you post pics of your cook. :)

Nick said...

Absolutely makes sense Jeanie. Thanks. Doing my best to keep warm. Hope you are doing the same. Things are supposed to warm up for the next few days, so I hope we get rid of some of this snow.

Take care, Nick

cowgirl said...

Thanks Nick.. I think the weather is going to warm up here for a few days too. I bet it will be nice to get rid of some of your snow!

Hope you have a great weekend! :)

Capt. Ron said...

Jeanie, those look wonderful. It is hard for me get beef ribs here. Probably just as well, because when I do get them I usually hurt myself.

cowgirl said...

:) Ron, they are my favorite! I love beef ribs. Thanks.. hope you are having a nice weekend!

Chris said...

I think beer is that kind of side dish that fits to every meal. And smoked beer is the queen of side dishes. ;-)

cowgirl said...

Haha.. Chris, I like the way you think! :)
Thanks,
Hope you had a great weekend!

I like the sound of that too Chris! Thanks.. :)

Chris said...

Sorry it was a "Polsterzipf" comment.

cowgirl said...

Haha.. I found it!! Thanks Chris. :)

Chris said...

beef ribs, Polsterzipf it sounds almost the same ;-)

cowgirl said...

:) Chris.. and they both taste so good! :)
I am enjoying your blogs.. I would love to catch fish like that!

Chris said...

Thank you
Yes i love fishing and i love to catch pikes.
Beautifull fishes and awesome fighter.
I thought, you have lakes
Are there no pikes, carps ore catfish?

cowgirl said...

There are no pikes in my area but I catch a lot of catfish and carp.. also some crappie and bass.
I love fishing...and camping!
The pike you catch are nice. Very large fish. They must be fun to bring in. :)

Chris said...

To find the pike is the challange.
But i love the DRILLTHRILLLLLL too!

I think you have the right area for fishing and camping.

Bass and catfish are real fine fishes.

cowgirl said...

:) It looks like you are VERY good at finding the pike. The fish in your pictures are nice ones!
I enjoy going fishing here as often as I can. I only go during the summer though.
Looks like you fish during winter too?

Chris said...

Thank you!!
I like your pictures too!!!
And i like your way of cooking!

I try to go fishing how often i can! At the moment it is not possible, the lakes are still frozen and i have to get my licences..but i´m ready for TAKEOFF!! ;-)
No i´m not so good..but i try to get better with every day i´m out for fishing

cowgirl said...

Thank you Chris! :)

I am waiting for warm weather too!!
I do not have my license yet either.

Looks like you do a great job of catching those pike!
I'm not so good but I have fun trying. :)

Chris said...

Fun is the perfect reason.
There is no need for hurry...only the nature and the silence counts.
A catched fish is the "deposit"
Hope "deposit" is the right word.

i try to do this job as good as possible.....i hope i can catch on of this real big muskies sometimes

cowgirl said...

Yes Chris, that makes perfect sense! I enjoy the quiet and nature out there. If I catch a nice fish, it is a bonus.... or makes my trip extra nice! :)

I'm not sure how big muskies get in your area but the fish in your pictures are great!

I'm going to cook some catfish tonight for supper. I have some saved from camping this summer. :)


Talking with you about fishing has made me hungry for fish! haha..

Chris said...

What do you mean no sides.....you served cold barley soup :) ;)

Those ribs look rocking good!

cowgirl said...

lol Chris! I didn't think of it that way. Thanks! :)

Chris said...

I´m talking about that muskies in America.

pikes in my area a real large with 90cm or a little bit more.
Pikes with one meter ore more are hard to catch.

I saw picutures of your fishes!!! Looks real good

cowgirl said...

Wow Chris, the ones in your area are huge! I've never been pike fishing but would like to someday. I think they are found more in the states north of me. ( I'll have to check).
Some of the flathead catfish we catch in Oklahoma get pretty big. People ( not me) like to "noodle" for fish by catching them with their hands. I'm not brave enough to do that! hahaha..

Thanks about my fish Chris! I cooked some last night, they were so tasty! :)

Chris said...

In Italy there are real big catfish. 2meter and more. But catfish fishing is not so my business. I love pike and walleye.
I read reports about the alligator pike...muhhaaaahaa MONSTER ;-)

cowgirl said...

:) Alligator pike would be interesting to catch too... scary! haha
I like walleye too, there aren't many in my area though.

It would be fun to catch some of those big ones in Italy! :)

Chris said...

Yesss...walleye is the princess of the predators...love them.
my favorit fish in the pan ;-)
I think Italy is the best country in Europe for black bass fishing!

cowgirl said...

Mmmmm..Yes those walleye are nice in the pan! :)

It would be nice to travel the world and try fishing in all countries. I would love that!!
I'd like to try salmon fishing in Alaska too. :)

Chris said...

I´d like musky fishing anywhere it is possible...sweden is a fine country. I heard America is a fine area for musky fishing.
How ever....i´m waiting for better wether.

cowgirl said...

I think the northern part of America has the best musky fishing. Some of my friends enjoy ice fishing up there but I've not tried it.
I'm waiting for warm weather too! :)

Do you grill the musky you catch? I like your grilling BBQ blog!

Chris said...

Thank you
The BBQ-Blog is a teamwork of two friends and me....but not compareable with your blog!!! Whole pigs, big smoker and outdoor grilling...i like your blog!!!!!
I grill the walleyes and pikes or fry it like "Wiener Schnitzel"
Anytime i will travel to America for fishing...but i don´t like flying ;-)

cowgirl said...

Thank you Chris :) I'm glad you like my blog..
I like your bbq blog too, looks great!
You and your friends area great chefs. Everything looks wonderful!

I will look up "wiener schnitzel"... It must be very tasty. I will try it, thanks!
:)

I am a flyer.. I love being up there. :)

Hope you are having a nice day, Thanks Chris! :)

Chris said...

I like it, you show what it is possible on a smoker, grill......
Nooo we are not great chefs....we pale in comparsion to you
I think you will like Wiener Schnitzel, it fits perfectly to beer ;-)

I wish you nice dreams, while i am in the office ;-)

cowgirl said...

Thank you Chris! I hope to try some of your recipes. :)
Do you have a favorite Wiener Schnitzel recipe that I could try?

I had good dreams, thanks! I dreamed about fishing and camping haha..
Hope your day at work went well! :)

Chris said...

It's very simple.
first you have to tenderize the meat. Salt the meat,
coat it with flour, dip it in a egg milk mix and coat it with white bread crumbs.
Fry it in deep hot oil.
rice or fries are the perfect side dishes.
A mix of potato and cucumber salade is also well.
any way....you can serve any side dish you want.
I like rice and some salad.
Don´t forget the beer...it fits perfect ;-)

I´m so proud...it was my first english recipe lesson.
I hope everything is comprehensible.

cowgirl said...

Everything is comprehensible Chris, thank you so much! I will give this a try,
Is it common to use veal or can I use pork?

Your English is very good Chris. :)

Chris said...

Good morning ;-)
You can use veal or pork.
Chicken breast is also a good choice...i love it!!!
btw. you can fill it with cheese and ham.
Than it calls Cordon Bleu...it tasts great.

cowgirl said...

Good morning Chris! I guess I should say Good afternoon to you. :)
I'm not sure if I can get veal here so I might have to try pork. Your chicken breast idea sounds really good too, Thanks!

I am going to town this afternoon, I will look for the veal.

Hope you are having a nice day! :)

Chris said...

fatless pork is ok.
no worry
believe me, i know what i´m talking about...i´m a Schnitzelking

cowgirl said...

Schnitzelking... I like that! :) lol

Any suggestions for a rice side dish? Do you have a favorite rice dish?

I'm looking forward to trying this Schnitzel. Thanks again Chris. :)

Chris said...

Simple boiled rice. I love it.
In a other live i was a Chinese....perhaps ;-)

cowgirl said...

Then I will make the simple boiled rice. :)
haha... maybe you were chinese..

I'm fond of chinese food, that's what I usually get when I go out.

Chris said...

I like chinese food too.
I love duck and the hot and spicy food!

Is your home far from the next town?

cowgirl said...

I love pekin duck and kung pao chicken. :)

I'm about one hour away from town where I shop. I like it out here though. It's nice and quiet. :)

Chris said...

Yes!
Duck and chicken
Good choice!!!!;-)

One hour is a good distance!
Far but not to far.
But far enough from any trouble

cowgirl said...

Do you cook chinese food too Chris?
I wish I knew how to make good chinese dishes. :)

It is nice out here, a lot of room.
Do you live in a town?

Chris said...

In a small village.
Not so much room...but better than in a town.
I would go insane in a town

I try to cook chinese food.
It is ok but it´s not that what I´m looking for!
I miss the last "kick"

cowgirl said...

A small village sounds nice. I think I would go insane in a town too!

My chinese food is the same as yours... it's okay but not fantastic. :)

I do like to make egg rolls. I can put anything inside of them. :)

Chris said...

I love egg rolls but i didn´t try do make it by my self.
I have a little bit worry about the dough

cowgirl said...

I buy the egg roll wrappers at the store. They are a lot easier to use than making them fresh.
Some times I use wonton wrappers too.. I love wontons. I love potstickers too. :)

I wish I had some for breakfast! haha

Chris said...

I have to look for egg roll wraps.
I think this is my way to make rolls.

cowgirl said...

They work great Chris, you can even fill them with BBQ meat! :)

Chris said...

Yeeaaa
Pulled pork in a egg roll

cowgirl said...

:) I like them fried crispy!

Chris said...

who not???;-)

cowgirl said...

haha... You're right Chris! :)

I'm going to see if I can find some veal now. Hope you have a great night Chris!! It's been nice talking with you! :)

Chris said...

I hope you find some veal.
But pork and chicken is also good.

It´s nice to talking with you too.
Now I have learned a lot.

cowgirl said...

I found some veal Chris... I'm so happy! :)

Chris said...

That´s good...I´m hungry ;-)
It´s breakfast time.
I could bear a good Wiener Schnitzel

cowgirl said...

Good morning Chris!
I hope to make the Wiener Schnitzel today. I will definately take pictures of it. :)
Thanks again for your help!
Hope your day is going well. :)

Chris said...

You´re welcome.
I´m pleased when i can help you
I send you an e-mail request.
I guess, thats the way to send you pictures.
I found a fine cake at your blog.
Uhhuuu blueberry pie.....looks real fine.
I´m not a "Naschkatze"...have no sweet tooth, but this could tast good

cowgirl said...

Thank you again! I do not have much of a sweet tooth either, but they are okay every once in awhile. :)
I will watch for your e-mail. That is the best way to send pictures.
I looked at all of your BBQ blog last night looking for the pizza. I didn't see it but the rest of the food looks wonderful!!
I'll let you know when your e-mail makes it!
Thanks...

Chris said...

On the way!!!!

cowgirl said...

Your pizzas look great Chris! Thanks for the pictures. :)

Chris said...

Thank you
But I have something to improve.
And I need better weather.

cowgirl said...

I am going to try pizzas soon...and will put artichokes on top! :)
Thanks Chris!

Chris said...

Yes try it!
Artishokes are very tasty on pizza.
But take care...they change their coloure easy ;-)
Or a few anchovies...I know, not everybody like them

cowgirl said...

I like anchovies if they are small. :)
