Step by step

Step 1: Meat preparation

One day in advance; Rub meat generously with the Beef or Steak Rub

Step 2: Barbecuing

Depending on factors such as the meat and the (stable) temperature in the barbecue, barbecuing beef ribs can take 7 to 12 hours. Fire the barbecue as steadily as possible at 105 to 115˚C.

Add smoked wood and first barbecue the ribs to a core temperature of 64 to 68˚C. Then wrap in aluminum foil and place back on the grill. At a core temperature of 92˚C the ribs are done. Then remove from the barbecue and let rest in the foil for at least half an hour.
