Beef Short Ribs

If you follow this blog at all, you know that I love to Barbecue on my trusty Weber Kettle.

I do it just about every weekend.

For awhile ... I've been wanting to try out smoking beef short ribs.

Last week sometime, I was in Sam's Club and saw "Beef Short Ribs" in a 6 lb package, and decided to pick them up to cook over the weekend.

These were cut differently than I expected them. They were cut much thinner ... much like pork steaks generally look.

I looked at many many youtube videos and I didn't come across any that look like the ones I had bought.

So, I wasn't exactly how to go about cooking them. I guess the best way to find out is to just do it.

So I just did it.

I seasoned the "ribs" with Montreal Steak Seasoning on Saturday night and left them until about noon on Sunday.

I set up a snake in my trusty kettle and started a fire to run about 250 degrees or so. The ribs covered my grate and then some. I ended up piling some of the pieces on top of others.

Then, I basically let the whole thing cook on hickory smoke and charcoal for 2 hours.

After two hours, I rearranged a bit so that any pieces on the bottom were on the top. I let them cook more for another 45 minutes to an hour.

Then, I piled the pieces in a covered foil pan, and let that cook for another couple hours.

After cooking in the pan, I pulled them out and let them firm up a bit. On some of them I applied BBQ Sauce and on some I left plain.

They turned out awesome. Everyone really liked them. I think my wife preferred the sauced ribs. My son preferred the non-sauce ribs. I liked them both, but think I slightly liked them without sauce a little more.

I feel like Beef Short Ribs are hard to screw up. These were fantastic.

I will absolutely make them again.
