Doing some beef short ribs this weekend. What's some good pointers and advice on how to prepare them? I've heard just salt them over about a day before they go on and then right before add a rub generously to them. My uncle makes homemade sauce that is a hit amongst those who've had it. I'd like to incorporate that. I'll be smoking them using pecan wood I'm also doing a slab of pork ribs alongside. Or should I do no seasoning and just smoke them and let everyone add sauce later if they fancy?
