Short ribs

TeefusTeefus Posts: 756
Did some short ribs today. No pics because they looked just like all the others posted here. I did a simple salt and pepper rub and laid off the wood chunks to please SWEMBO. She doesn't care for an intense smoke flavor and I want to sneak up on the right level over a couple three cooks. Seven hours at 275 worked well. I'll go eight next time and use pecan chunks too. Any suggestions for a rub that will add a little more punch? I have very little experience with slow cooked beef beyond the occasional brisket.

  • Cmon Man!  I don't care if it's been done a milllion times....   we need pics! 
  • If I was home instead of sitting in a hotel room I could tell you the name of a brisket rub that @Foghorn gave me in the exchange that is awesome on beef ribs imo. I'm sure others will be by with suggestions.

    I'm guessing you're talking about the Fiesta brand "Brisket Rub". Or their "Uncle Chris Steak Seasoning".

    To minimize the rub vs. cook matrix, go with whatever worked with the brisket.  If that is not an option, then once you nail this one, make that the brisket rub.  For me the simpler the better.  FWIW-

    Thanks for the comments. I think I may try the Prime Rib Rub we use on roasts. It's a mix of salt, celery seed, sugar, black pepper, onion, garlic and arrowroot and it makes a decent bark in the oven. That and some more smoke should work out well on the Egg.
