Introduction: How to Cook Low and Slow Beef Short Ribs

Beef ribs are packed full of natural flavor, so we are going to use a simple rub and smoke these low and slow.


  • Beef Short Ribs
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Step 1: Mix Equal Amounts of Salt and Pepper.

I like to keep it simple with just salt and pepper but also to let the flavor of the meat to sing.

Step 2: Make Sure to Cover All of the Ribs.

Want to choose ribs that have a lot of meat on them and a good amount of marbling.

Step 3: Bring Your BBQ Up to a Temperature of Around 250f That's 121c.

I’m going to smoke these with some Ironbark, you could also use oak.

Step 4: Once Your BBQ Is Up to Temp, Place Your Ribs With the Thickest Side Facing the Fire Box.

Cook for 2 hours.

Make sure you check them every hour and turn them around to help them evenly cook.

Step 5: After 2 Hours the Ribs Should Have Formed a Nice Bark.

It time to wrap them in foil and let then let them cook for another or two.

Step 6: Once the Ribs Are Tender to the Touch It’s Time to Take Them Off

Let them rest for a least half an hour before cutting.

Step 7: Slice Them Up and Serve.
