How to cook a trimmed rib of beef

Cooks in 7 hours Difficulty Easy

Cherished by meat connoisseurs and chefs alike, a bone-in French trimmed rib of beef is the Rolls-Royce cut from the primal rib. It’s a prime roasting joint with an unusual depth-of-flavour, thanks to the main ‘eye’ of meat that has an abundance of fat marbled through it. This not only keeps the meat tender during the cooking process, but also provides a deeply complex flavour.

How to smoke a brisket

Cooks in 8 hours Difficulty Medium

Nothing compares to fork-tender and deliciously smoky beef brisket that’s been barbequed low and slow. For this, you’ll need a kamado bbq or an offset smoker to achieve a low, consistent temperature for a long period of time. Smoking brisket has a lot of connective tissue, so it takes plenty of time to break down. For a 2.5kg brisket, expect a 7-8 hour cooking time (excluding resting time) as standard.
