My good friend whacked a bear and had to head to Australia shortly thereafter. I had asked him if he shot one if I could get the ribs. Firstly, Tyler is a champ and not only did he give me the ribs, but they were as clean as from a butcher’s shop. But finally, I have to say, the bear ribs are the best ribs of any animal I’ve ever eaten - tame or wild. Never leave em behind!

I shoot bears from 160 to 250, if I can. All great eats. Worse bear, was my big one, great rug, but you can have them.

I just googled a rub, changed it slightly. Was worried it was not quite thawed but threw on the smoker at 210 for 3 hours. 2.5 hours in foil, then an hour out of foil. Insanely good

I left it in foil a little extra to encourage tenderness. As you can tell by clean bone showing it worked. You could eat these toothless.

Do you sauce them at the end or eat them naked? They LOOK delicious!

"I shoot bears from 160 to 250, if I can. All great eats. Worse bear, was my big one, great rug, but you can have them." Big bears taste great, old bears do not. 2 of the bears I killed were really old, they where missing a bunch of teeth and the teeth they had worn down, those bears were disgusting
