Dinosaur Beef Ribs in Baton Rouge

Where can one go about purchasing some Mesozoic era ribs? I might have seen them at whole foods last time I was fondling myself by the meat counter, but I can't recall.

Where do you buy them? You just slap a rub on them and smoke them?

re: Dinosaur Beef Ribs in Baton Rouge
Yeah, i was talking about smoking them. I've figured out the babyback/ spare ribs. Beef ribs are very underutilized in my opinion. I know TJ ribs has them on the menu. Mostly what you see in the store are these Image: http://img.foodnetwork.com/FOOD/2006/06/27/bq0325_beef_ribs2_lg.jpg


which don't have enough fat or meat for that matter, to produce a truly tasty rib.

I think a slow smoke, and quick braise/carmelize with BBQ sauce is in order.

So, whole foods? hat's my best bet? I've never seen them in Calandros.

I like beef ribs better than pork ribs but they are hard to find with a lot of meat on the bone. Make sure to remove the membrand from the back of the ribs, then put a rub on them and then smoke for a couple of hours at about 250 degrees. I don't put sauce on mine.

re: Dinosaur Beef Ribs in Baton Rouge
I like beef better too. The best I've ever had were on a guy's homemade smoker in Red Lick, MS using a wood they called China Ball. All he did was dust them with Tony's and smoke them for 3-4 hours on low, low heat.

The ribs came from a place somewhere around Madisonville. My buddy's dad picked them up. They had more meat on them than any I've seen anywhere. I'll have to find out.

re: Dinosaur Beef Ribs in Baton Rouge
my regular grocery store usually has decent ones. yep, i use a beef rub then just smoke them for about 5 hours or until the meat pulls back and they look done. because the meat pulls back so much they are pretty easy to eye ball

This is the type of wood they were smoked with.

This might have some of the best flavor of any wood I've had anything smoked with.

Calandros is usually happy to order odd stuff upon request. Just let them know what you're looking for.

re: Dinosaur Beef Ribs in Baton Rouge
Im not saying they will be the meatiest you can find but they always have them. Considering they are hard to find im satisfied with the ones oak point has. Keep in mind a beef rib is gonna pull in alot more than pork does. What may not look very meaty may end up fine when they are done
