Cost of Beef Back Ribs?

zackly | May 8, 201606:08 AM     6

What should Beef Back Ribs cost? I’m talking about the rack taken from the prime rib roast when fabricating a boneless rib eye. In my area they are quite expensive and rarely on sale. They can cost as much as $6.00-$7.00 a pound, the same price as beef short ribs. There’s not a lot of meat on an individual rib so the per person food cost can be quite high. Connecticut is not known as a big area for barbecue so I guess the lack of demand keeps the product scarce and expensive. Also, when I can find them they are cut into individual ribs not the whole rack or 3-4 rib sections which would be better for the smoker. I wonder how much they cost in beef BBQ country (Texas etc.) where smoked beef ribs are popular. They should be cheaper than pork ribs but are not around here. Thanks!
