About this cut
We take the three meatiest bones from the richly marbled plate ribs and cut you perfect strips ~4" long and 3 bones wide (~8"). These beautifully marbled pieces are trimmed to perfection, and are ready for your smoker, grill, or slow cooker.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Grill, smoke, or braise.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

Having ordered this before, I was definately disappointed in these ribs. The meat that was there was great, however he butchering was off. I was skeptical when I put them on the smoker as there was really only meat above the center rib. Almost like a triangle shape. My 2 packs of 3 bone ribs yielded way less than my previous experience. Taste was good but I expected more. From G&B: So sorry these racks weren't up to snuff. Sometimes the smaller ones can be less meaty- but we always want folks to be satisfied. We'll follow up directly to make it right.
This is one of my favorite special occasion meals! I usually use the ginger soy recipe on the G&B site and its so good every time.
I was skeptical - it was a lot of money....but I get it now! eat less & buy better quality :)
Wanted to recreate "dino ribs" at home. Smoked these for 6 hours and they were juicy and delicious. Much more meat per rib than back ribs.
I smoked (hickory chips on a gas grill, meat on the cool side) these yesterday for about 5.5 hours. They'd have been better off staying on the grill for longer, but our schedule didn't allow it. I put a maple bbq rub (McCormick) and the ribs turned out wonderfully. I will definitely be repeating these in my smoker at home.
These ribs were supremely succulent. Cooked in a smoker for 7 hours, they were ... delicious. Melting. Such a rich flavor. And huge. Truly superb. I got 6 packs (2 ribs per person, for 8 people) which was more then enough. So, so good. The ONLY caveat (and it is barely one) is that one of the packages was not completely vaccuum sealed, and had very slight freezer burn, which was not detectable, once cooked. Utterly delicious, would highly recommend.
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
