Ingredients

  • 3-4

    lbs short ribs

  • 1/4

    cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2

    cup rub (your favorite beef rub, or the one below)

  • For the Rub (you won't use all of this)

  • 1/2

    cup kosher salt

  • 1/2

    cup coarse black pepper

  • For the Spritz

  • 1/3

    cup beef broth

  • 1/3

    cup dry red wine

  • 1/3

    cup Worcestershire sauce

  • For the Braising Liquid

  • 1

    cup dry red wine

  • 1

    cup beef broth

  • 1

    tablespoon rub

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

Directions

Preheat smoker to 225 degrees with fruit wood. Trim silver skin off short ribs, coat with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper (depending on the size of your short ribs you may or may not use all of the dry rub. Just make sure it's applied liberally based on the size of your meat). Place short ribs on the smoker for two hours and prepare your spritz. After two hours begin spritzing ribs every 30 minutes for one to two hours more. Look for the meat pulling back off the bone and a good mahogany color as the indicator it is ready for the braise. When the color looks good and meat is pulling back from the bone (internal temp of roughly 165 degrees F or 3 to 4 hours on smoke), add to an aluminum pan. In the pan add wine, beef stock, salt and pepper, and butter. Cover tightly with foil and put back into the smoker. After one to two hours, use a meat thermometer to probe short ribs, the ribs are done when you can insert the thermometer and the feel is like inserting into warm butter. There should not be much resistance, if it’s not like butter it is not quite done yet, and keep cooking until it is. After you have determined it’s done (roughly 200 - 205 degrees Fahrenheit), remove from smoker and let sit covered for 15 minutes. Remove from bath and serve with your favorite side and wine.
