Smoked Beef Short Ribs are a crowd favorite, and for good reason. The smokey, crunchy bark and the tender, juicy rib meat are everything great about barbecue. We’re going to let you in on a little secret, they’re also incredibly easy to cook! Check out Chef Tom’s recipe for Smoked Beef Short Ribs, cooked over charcoal and cherry wood on the Kamado Joe Classic III Ceramic Grill, and as a bonus, a bright and tangy Chimichurri sauce to compliment.
Place a few fist sized chunks of Cattleman's Grill cherry smoking wood on the coal bed. When the chunks ignite, set the grill up for indirect cooking and transfer the short ribs to the grill.
Smoke the ribs until probe tender. There should be very little resistance when probed with an instant read thermometer, and the internal temperature will surpass 205ºF. The length of the cook with depend on the size of the slab of ribs. Our 6 lb slab took about 5 1/2 hours.
To make the chimichurri, place all the ingredients into the food processor. Pulse until all ingredients are chopped and well combined. Adjust consistency with more olive oil for a looser sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning, as needed. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
