 We have been having fun with 'Uncle Joe's BBQ Sauce In-A-Bag." This sauce in its dry form can be used as a flavorful rub. Short ribs smoked low and slow will result in a meaty tasty BBQ treat. We will rub some 'Uncle Joe's all over some large beef ribs and let them rest until the fire is ready. Once your smoker rig is up to 250 degrees add some smoking material. Hickory wood was our flavor of the day. Now the only trick it to be patient.

Four hours later or until the meat thermometer registers 190 degrees remove these dinosaur bones. Be careful because the meat probably will fall off the bone. Let the ribs rest covered for 15 minutes, if you can. "Uncle Joe's Sauce In-A-Bag" provided a flavorful tasty crust to this irresistible hunk of meat. This 'Honey Mesquite' flavored rub was a little sweet with some nice spice. No more sauce was needed. This could be served with some Cole slaw and my favorite vegetable, asparagus. Smoked short ribs are a meat candy treat. So much flavor is coaxed from this meat with the low and slow heat and smoky cooking environment.

Funny I was just looking at short rib recipes last night. Do you eat them off the bone? Seems like they are getting put into tacos these days.

Wow, that looks good. It's only 10:30am and I'm drooling already.

Looks damn tasty! I got impatient with my last batch of short ribs and they ended up being good, but not as melty and tender as they should have been.

That sauce in a bag looks like fun too.

Greg, They fall off the bone. This would be perfect for some tacos.

Zoomie, I wish I still had some left.

food-fire, It does take a time commitment but it is worth it. We have been having fun with Uncle Joe's.

It's been a while since I made short ribs, I've been doing only back ribs. These look extra meaty and delicious.
