To get started, we trimmed all of the extra fat off of our beef ribs. It’s important to trim the extra fat from the beef ribs to ensure that the rub has a chance to marry with the meat.

After trimming all of the extra fat from the beef ribs, we applied a generous coat of Wired Cow seasoning to all sides of the beef ribs. Wired Cow is one of our favorite rubs to use on large cuts of beef because it creates an incredible bark on the outside of the meat, allowing all of that delicious moisture to remain inside!

After seasoning the beef ribs, we got our Big Green Egg up to 275 degrees and dropped our short ribs right onto the grill. We let the ribs smoke for about 5 hours, reaching an internal temperature around 205 degrees.
