Beef Back Ribs

Topic: Cooking | Tags:


These ribs are not very meaty but oh boy are they tasty. They come from the bones that are cut off a rib eye roast (prime rib). Since the roast sells for a premium, there usually is not much meat on top of the bones but there is some meat in between each one. I prepare these like I do pork ribs.

  • Add a dusting of salt and let sit in fridge for 12+ hours (optional)
  • Add a layer of rub (if salted first, use a rub with less salt)
  • Smoke for 3 hours
  • Wrap in foil (optional)
  • Smoke for 1 more hours
  • Unwrap foil of they were wrapped
  • Smoke for 1 more hour (5 total)
