Texas Style Beef Short Ribs Recipe
Let’s begin with rubbing the meat down. Our rub is very simple: Kosher salt and black pepper. Make sure to cover all sides of the meat sufficiently.
Time to light the fire! We are using a Weber Go-Anywhere Grill, which is quite a small grill, so arranging everything on there efficiently is essential. Put the coal on one side, and some tin foil under the other side where the meat will be. We will be adding some maple and hickory wood for extra flavor. Our target temperature is 250F.
If you are using the Go-Anywhere, try to find a spot that is shielded from the wind, as there are a lot of vents on the WGA and the wind can mess with your grill temperature.
Smoking should take from 6 to 8 hours, depending on the thickness of the meat. We want our meat to be toothpick tender when we pull it off the fire, which might take a little longer but is definitely worth the wait.
Now we can transfer the ribs to an empty cooler and let them rest for a minimum of 30 minutes, up to 3 hours. Afterwards we can slice the ribs and serve in our favorite way.
