We love beef ribs, and with the addition of this spicy citrus marinade they are taken to a whole new level.

Grapefruit Habanero Beef Back Ribs



Place the ribs and Sweetwater Spice Smoked Habanero BBQ Bath in a zip top bag (split rack in half, if necessary). Marinate in the refrigerator for two hours.

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 to 250°F. Remove ribs from marinade. Starting with the bone side of the ribs, apply a layer of Cattleman’s Grill Smoky Chipotle Steak Rub. Allow to soak in then flip and repeat seasoning process on the meat side. Rest 10 minutes then place on the top rack of your Yoder Smokers YS640.

This recipe was prepared on a Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Grill.

Place the mango, grapefruit juice, habaneros, brown sugar and tequila in a blender or food processor and purée. Store in the refrigerator.

After 3 hours of smoking, remove ribs from smoker and double wrap in foil. Place the purée in the foil with the ribs. Turn the smoker up to 350°F and continue to cook until the meat is tender and the meat moves freely from the bone, about 2 hours longer. Glaze with Texas Bird Bath Peach Habanero.
