Beef, Smokin'/Grillin'

The Perfect Juicy Beef Ribs 

Hey Smokin and Grillin Wit AB Fam, we’re diving into the world of beef ribs and trust me, it’s gonna be a flavor-packed journey. If you’re ready to up your grilling game, stay tuned because we’re keeping it simple, delicious, and with a touch of your own signature style.


  • Beef ribs
  • Your favorite rub
  • Barbecue sauce (or any sauce of your choice)


The Meaty Lineup

Start with the star of the show – those beef ribs. Look for the ones with perfect marbling and just the right amount of fat. And remember, keep that membrane on the back; it’s the secret to locking in all that mouthwatering goodness during the cook.

Your Favorite Rub

Now, let’s talk flavor. Grab your favorite rub – the one that never fails to make your taste buds dance. Whether it’s store-bought or your secret homemade mix, generously coat those ribs. Need a binding agent? The W sauce (or Worcestershire sauce) is your go-to. It not only helps the rub stick but adds an extra layer of savory goodness.

Fired Up and Ready to Grill

Preheat your pellet grill to a toasty 250°F (121°C). Place those beautifully seasoned ribs on the grates and let them soak in the smoky goodness for about 3 hours. No wrapping needed – we want that perfect bark to form.

Saucing It Up

Now, it’s time to take things up a notch. Crank up the heat to 275°F (135°C). Mix up your favorite barbecue sauce or any sauce you fancy. In the last hour of cooking, brush or glaze those ribs, letting the sauce caramelize into a flavorful masterpiece.

Temperature Check

We’re all about precision here. Use a meat thermometer to ensure your ribs hit that sweet spot between 205-207°F (96-97°C). It’s the magic number for juicy, fall-off-the-bone goodness.

Rest, Slice, and Savor

Give your masterpiece a well-deserved 30-minute rest. Then, dive in and slice those ribs. Picture this – a crunchy bark, succulent meat, and a burst of flavor with every bite. Check out the Smokin’ and Grillin’ with AB Signature Japanese Damascus Steel 12″ Meat Slicer
