      While beef is braising, pierce potatoes with a fork a few times and set aside. The last 1-1/2 hrs of cooking, place the potatoes directly on grill great next to dutch oven.
    • 7

      Pull the Dutch oven and potatoes from grill. Let potatoes cool slightly and then cut in half, lengthwise, using a fork to scrape flesh into a large saucepan.
    • 8

      Smash mixture with potato masher until mostly smooth. Stir in butter and half and half, season generously with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
    • 9

      Pull the beef out of the pot and spoon some of the braising liquid over each rib. Serve with the mashed potatoes and your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
