    I had a few packages of short ribs in the freezer. I've never smoked beef ribs of any kind before, so I decided to throw them on the smoker and see what happens!

    I cut them into single rib sections and trimmed all the fat i could off of them.

    Dusted them with rub.

    Put them on the smoker at 225.

    After 1 hour.


    After 3 hours.

    I put them in a pan with water and Moore's Marinade, and wrapped them in foil.

    After 1 hour in the pan, they have pulled back on the bone nicely.

    I put them back on the grate, and glazed the with sauce.

    They came out a little tough, but had a great flavor. I'm not sure if I should have cooked them longer or what. They seemed to toughen up as soon as i took them off the grill. I defiantly have to try these again! Thanks for looking! [​IMG]

    The look really really tasty...mmmm    Short ribs can take a good 4-6 hours really low and slow like you did...with basting every hour or so and come out very well.   Prior to smoking i sear them over some coals ...and don't foil. 

    I just did some beef short ribs that went 6 hours....but it was worth it.
