Smoked Beef Short Ribs

Smoked Beef Short Ribs may lack the bone but they definitely do not lack any flavor, especially after being smoked and glazed.

The rub is a simple salt and pepper which is a traditional Texas-style seasoning, although simple it works really well with the beef. The wrapping liquid and glaze add additional layers of flavor that add a little sweetness and salty.

This version is cut down to cubes to create a finger food similar to traditional brisket burnt ends, if you would like to serve as part of a meal then don’t cube between the smoking and wrapping sets. This will create a good serving size piece.

Ingredients

Smoked Beef Short Ribs

4.5 pounds (4kg) beef short ribs

cracked black pepper, to taste

kosha salt. to taste

Wrapped Beef Short Ribs

3 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Glaze

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Equipment

smoke

2 chunks hickory wood

2 sheet foil

Recipe Directions

  1. Sprinkle the beef short ribs with the black pepper and kosha salt. Let sit at room temperature for 45 minutes while you set-up, light, and bring to temperature the smoker.

  2. Light the smoker and set at 250 to 275 degrees F (121 to 135 degrees C) with 2 chunks of hickory wood.

  3. Place the beef short ribs on the smoker and smoke for 3 hours.

  4. Take off the beef spare ribs then slice into cubes.

  5. Layout the two sheets of foil on top of each other then place the beef spare ribs in the center with all pieces flat touching the base, thus not piled up). Top the spare rib cubes with the butter, sugar, honey, and BBQ sauce. Wrap the foil layers to create a sealed package.

  6. Place the foil-wrapped beef short ribs on the smoker and cook for an additional 2 hours.

  7. Open the foil pack and check that the beef rib cubes are tender, if not re-seal in the foil and continue cooking until tender.

  8. Combine the BBQ sauce and brown sugar.

  9. Adjust the foil to create a ‘boat’ around the beef. Basically, roll down the sides to create walls to a bowl made out of the foil. Make big enough that the liquid is a low level exposing most of the meat.

  10. Top the beef cubes with the BBQ sauce and return to the smoker for 15 minutes.

  11. Baste the beef cubes with the juices and BBQ sauce that has accumulated in the base of the foil and return to the smoker and cook for 15 minutes. Repeat again.

  12. Take off the smoker and rest for 15 minutes, then serve.
