Rib Short Ribs sold by the whole plate each have three bones and are about 8 inches long. This is a great item for the smoker and when done it's simple to just cut in between the bones and you have three monster ribs to feast on. Also check out our Flanken or Single Bone Short Ribs if you'd like a smaller portion that is already cut for you. This option is the largest Short Rib you can find. This is a meaty cut!
