Does anyone know how they used to prepare their beef ribs? IIRC, they did not smoke their ribs and finish on a flame broiler. I do remember something about them claiming being baked in a special way or something like that. Since they were well known for their prime rib roasts, I'm going to assume they used to cut their own ribs with a bit extra meat on them. I would tend to doubt they actually baked the ribs unless they par boiled them. They didn't have that spongy texture as I recall. I'm venturing a guess that they were prepared in draw broilers like steaks and turned once and then basted with sauce. Would anyone know how they did them or any of the chains like The Depot back then for that matter. They had to turn them out pretty quickly for the all you can eat. I don't see that happening in a deck oven or a parboil process.
