Required Tools

  • 4 Beef Short Ribs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 cup beef broth


  1. Start your smoker and get the temperature stable at 180ºF.
  2. Season the ribs with salt and pepper. Make sure to get both sides.
  3. Place the ribs directly on the grill and smoke for 3 hours.
  4. Remove the ribs from the grill and place them in a disposable aluminum tray.
  5. Gently add the beef broth into the aluminum tray until they are completely covered in liquid. Then, use a sheet of aluminum foil and cover the tray.
  6. Increase the grill’s temperature to 375ºF.
  7. Return the wrapped ribs to the grill and smoke for another 45 minutes.
  8. Remove the ribs from the grill, remove them from the aluminum tray, and serve immediately.

BBQ Hero Tip: Try adding some fresh herbs when you put the ribs into the tray. It’ll add some great flavors! We love fresh Thyme, but Rosemary is a close second!
