Smoked Beef Ribs Recipe.
We had some awesome weather this weekend and I decided to smoke Beef Ribs that I bought from Crowd Cow. These are Wagyu Beef Chuck Short Ribs and they had a ton of intramuscular fat in them which helps to baste the smoked beef ribs from the inside out. This makes them extra tender and they also tend to cook faster in the smoker.
We used the Pit Boss Vertical pellet smoker but any kind of smoker will do. You just want to make sure you are using indirect heat and have the smoker set to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. I used a simple salt, pepper and garlic seasoning for the rub and used some Worcestershire sauce as a binder.
The smoked Beef Ribs cooked for a total of 5 hours. 3 hours in the smoke, 2 hours in the foil. I came out and spritzed them with water at the 1.5 hour mark and then again at the 2.5 hour mark.

beef I’m just going for alittle backyard trim here try to getjust the fat a little piece of meatthere’s not going to hurtjust come back this way it helps if youhave a really sharp knife come back andmake another cut like thiswe goand then I’ll take a little bit of thisoff right here it’s good that I can seeit from the side kind of how deep itgoes so just kind of follow that lineand that is really hard fat so probablymost of that was not gonna render I cancome down right here on an angle therewe gookay that’s all the trimming I’m gonnado on this this backside I’m just gonnaleave it alone we don’t need to trimanything back there and today before Iput my rub on I am gonna use a binder sowe’re gonna use some of this what’s thishere sauce in my opinion it does addsome flavor it’s also gonna help withthat darker bark that we like to get onour beef just drizzle that on rub it inwe’ll get both sidesand for these expensive cuts I don’tlike to go with a real strong rub sowe’re just gonna go with the savory saltpepper garlic you can make your own Ihappen to be using killer hogs todayjust give that a little dose pat it inlet that rub absorb in and that’s goingto turn our rub nice and dark get theedges and now we can get the topsideyeah that’s looking good and I’m gonnalet this rest out here on the counterfor about 10-15 minutes while the smokerstarts to heat up we’ll just give allthose flavors some time to marrytogether let the ribs kind of get themeat sweats and then it’ll be ready forsome smoke and speaking of smoke thisbaby’s rolling let’s get them in thereget this door open I’m going right hereat the center rack level right next tothe latch my water pan is full of waterand I’m gonna put these in so that themeteor side goes towards the back solike thisthe back of the smoker is hotter thanthe front so that’s why I did thatlet’s get this door closed and the gameplan today low and slow225 degrees Fahrenheit I don’t reallyconcern myself too much with thetemperature of the meat but as a roughguideline somewhere around 160 165degrees is where the bark starts to setto where I like it and then I’ll decideif I’m gonna wrap them up or just letthem roll in the smoke and as usualwe’ll come back about once an hour toshow you guys how it’s looking all rightwe just hit about the 1 and a half hourmark let’s get this guy openwe’re not gonna check temperature rightnow we’re
