Nick is right on. Most Mexican stores have meaty ribs. But you need to ask for the whole slab, or at least not cut thin sliced. Not cheap but good. CF :D

like raw to cook, I mean. we got several great bbq places around here that serve em,
I just want to try my hand at some big thick ones and can only ever find ones without much meat on them.

Go to any HEB, talk to the butcher and ask for cryo-packed beef ribs. When I did, he came out with 2 racks of 4 ribs in one package. They didn't look like what I was expecting, but I told him I'll take em, how much? He had to go look them up in his notebook. They don't sell them like that, the meat department cuts them up and sells the ribs as other cuts. I paid $10 or $12 for the package.

When I put them on the pit, after about 3 hours at 225 degrees, the meat pulled from the bone and bunched up at one end of the bone. 2 ribs is more than I can eat.

Go to a traditional meat market and ask for flanken ribs. Flanken ribs are cross cut to make short ribs which is what you normally find in chain grocers.

Good beef ribs are pricey, and hard to find. I made friends with the local butcher, and he will get them for me as I need. He also knows that I eat beef sausages, so he makes them a few times a year.
