How To Smoke Texas Cut Beef Ribs
Ingredients For This Beef Ribs Recipe:
- Beef ribs
- 1 pint Porter beer
- 1/4 Cup Worcestershire sauce
- Beef Rub of your choice
- Savory BBQ sauce
- High quality meat thermometer
Preparing Your Texas Cut Ribs
To prepare the Texas cut beef ribs, remove the membrane on the inside of the ribs. This can be tricky some times, but usually after you peel off the first bit with a knife, you can rip the whole membrane off in one piece. If there are any hard chunks of fat under the membrane, remove those too, as they do not render down as easily.
Seasoning Your Beef Ribs
After you have cleaned the ribs, apply a layer of binder to the ribs. For this recipe, mix the beer and Worcestershire sauce. Save the remaining liquid for spritzing later.
Then apply the rub on both sides. When you are done, get them in a plastic bag/zip lock and let them set in the fridge for a couple of hours. This lets the meat soak up the flavors of the spices.
Smoking Your Ribs
You can now put the ribs in a smoker preheated to 250ºF. You can use pecan wood or any other wood of your preference in the smoker to add some flavor. Smoke for about 4 to 5 hours or until the meat between the bones hits approximately 200F. Use a high quality meat thermometer to measure your temperatures. When the smoked beef ribs are 20 minutes away from being done, you can baste with the BBQ sauce.
When done, let the meat relax for a little bit. Then cut them up, and enjoy your smoked Texas cut beef ribs!
