When people talk about short ribs they are usually talking about Chuck Short ribs (first-5th rib). But there is also the Plate Ribs (6th-10th rib). All are fatty, but I think the plate ribs are fattier (but more tender).

I don't like braising and would rather cook them low and slow (5-7 hours at 250). To my taste, braising makes them more like a pot roast and unless you cook them them the day before and refrigerate, so you can skim off the fat, that fat is harder for some people to digest.

Restaurant Depot and Costco sell the Chuck short ribs either with bones or boneless (although some Costcos don't sell the ones with bones). The boneless has much less fat and cooks beautifully - very much like a brisket with burnt ends. I've never seen boneless plate ribs. I prefer the boneless except when I have a craving for gnawing on some bones.

Here is an article which includes Plate Ribs

Florida Grillin Girl's posting of her link was also very useful.
