Picked up some beef short ribs, those tiny like inch long ones. I think a lot of "good" bbq joints use the full rib as short ribs, so the online search hasn't been helpful. Anyway, thoughts on smoking those. I'm sure they'd be good with the 3-2-1 method, but always open to other ideas, and I'm sick of the anova, so these will be smoked for sure.

Wholesale Club for 8-9" beef ribs and also brisket at great prices.

The plan was to go with a Weber Genesis, but they've priced themselves from my consideration, a four burner LP is listed at $1200, and if I want doors+side burner that's another $700 on top.
Not to mention that the Genesis II is now completely built/manufactured in China and I'd rather not have to play reliability roulette when paying that much.
I would stick with the Weber versus Napolean from personal experience. Their boxes are just better at keeping the heat in. Every spring and fall HomeDepot/Lowes/Rona have their 20% off sales for BBQs and that is the time to buy.

I have a Napoleon and I'd rather have it than a Weber. You really can't go wrong. I have the 3 zone one that isn't made anymore, it's great. My parents have the 4 zone one and it's even better. My grandparents have the 4 zone + sear + rotisserie burner and it's very good as well
I grew up on a 3 zone Weber and I think they're good but overpriced and overrated.
I BBQ all winter, blizzard be damned. Haven't had a heat problem except for my own body

Update: Picked up a Weber Genesis S330 with Sear burner and side burner that was on clearance at HD for $977. HD also had the sign up for our credit card and get $100 off so it ended up being $877+GST.
Went to Barbeques Galore to scope out Napoleon and the new Genesis II series, the sales person didn't give a compelling argument as to why one would get the Genesis II over the outgoing models, and the Napoleon's just couldn't compete on price with that older Genesis. That rotisserie burner on the Napoleon's is definitely nice though....

The only thing I had to buy was the grate + stone to make a diffuser. You could buy the actual one made for it but I haven't seen it locally. I heard the new ones even have the bottom vent sealed up better too.
