Feel like a caveman eating these hanging beef ribs. Seasoned with your favorite rub, these are easy ribs to make but with great flavor.
You can smoke multiple racks of ribs at a time, just make sure to leave space between each so they get even smoke. Hanging is a popular method and gets a lot of smoke exposure all the way around the rubs without the use of racks.
When the ribs have finished cooking, simply slice and serve with your favorite BBQ sauce. Turn the leftovers into amazing shredded beef sandwiches the next day.
Hanging Smoked Beef Ribs Recipe
- 2 racks beef ribs
- 1 tablespoon your favorite BBQ rub
- hardwood charcoal
- cherry wood
- Trim the ribs then sprinkle the BBQ rub. Let marinate for 45 minutes to 2 hours.
- Light a pit barrel or similar barbecue pit that allows you to hang. Bring the heat to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C) with hardwood charcoal and a chunk of cherry wood.
- Hang the ribs on the H-frame. Cook for 3 hours then check. The ribs are ready when tested with a skewer that slides in without resistance. Depending on the meat this may be between 185 and 205 degrees F (85 to 96 degrees C).
