Beef Short Ribs

I picked up some beef short ribs from my butcher on Monday for the 4 of July dinner. The racks were 7lbs between the two, very nice meaty marbled ribs. $5 a lb and well worth it!



Splashed with Worcestershire, then rubbed liberally with Wolfe Rub Bold.




Cooked indirect with lump and two big pieces of Apple Wood.



Started with a coat of Sticky Fingers Carolina Sweet Sauce after the ribs had cooked for 4 hours.


Final coat of sauce at the 5 hour mark.



Ribs are done and ready to rest while the corn cooks.



Time to eat. The ribs were like butter, very rich, flavorful, tender and filling.




We had homemade potato salad, homemade pasta salad and sub-par corn. You’d think this time of the year the corn would be great……


Bones came squeaky clean. NO I didn’t eat all of these, they were from all three of us. One rib I would consider a serving, that’s how meaty they were. Shawn and I split a second one.

More than likely you won't find them in a grocery store, those are generally back ribs and overly trimmed called 'shiners' cause the only meat you see on them is between the bones. You need to find a decent butcher and ask for 'plate short ribs' or 'beef ribs'. There are also smaller 3-4" short ribs that come from the chuck, which are often available in the grocery store. I think these are better braised, but are still good BBQ'd.

Re: Beef Short Ribs

Larry, count your blessings that you can find meat like that. I would love to walk into a store and buy a couple racks that look like that! And great job cooking them as well.
