What about brining beef ribs to tenderize - would that work ?

I've never needed to do that.  Mine have always been melt in your mouth good, just like these were ! ! !

I smoked for 2.5 hours, wrapped for an hour then unwrapped for 30 more minutes. Generally beef ribs need to be cooked well past done to get them tender. These were pretty darn tender.

are you suggesting instead of going for "temp" just let em go until if feels like knife could go through like hot butter?'

ive done the shorties and its a hard cook, ive never tried your way though, just curious when you thought,  "ok yeah its time to pull them"?

I've never checked temp on beef ribs, I've always gone by probing the meat. From amazingribs... "And they must be cooked well past well-done, waaaaay past well-done in order to tenderize them".
