I cooked some beef short ribs on the UDS tonight. I am working on a recipe for the blog, but I thought I'd share a pic.

Dude, those look sooo freakin' tasty...
PD,
Those ribs look wonderful. I can't wait to see the recipe and hear how they turned out. I'm interested to know how tender they were, and whether they were cooked by a single or combination of techniques. Thanks again!
First, welcome to the site Palapa. I agree with Sampson, salt & pepper on the beef ribs, but I like a bit of garlic as well!

Second, those look good John, as always.

John,

I've never been much of a fan using sugar with my beef. Do you really enjoy the flavor added from the Root Beer? I understand it may be just a personal perference.

Sugar on beef: I'm no fan of it either, but one must consider the source and not condemn it out of hand. I'm going to give this recipe a try myself, then judge it and report my own findings.

As an aside, I found a butcher yesterday who custom cut for me 3 racks of back ribs, leaving a good 1/2" of meat around the bones (at $1.50/lb!). I seasoned them lightly with gran. garlic and pepper then introduced them to Mr. Traeger for 5 hours on Smoke (170 deg. f, oak and cherry pellets). I finished them at 350 for 1/2 hour. Still moist, yet tender. It seems the long smoking period was enough to break the connective tissue down so the meat was no longer rubbery. I'm still experimenting and trying to learn from my experiences. I may try it again, this time on Smoke for 6 hours.

More to come....

The seasoning has plenty of salt, so the sugar isn't even noticeable. Yes, I like the root beer flavor. In fact, I use it in my competition brisket injection. :wink:

Thanks John

I picked up some boneless short ribs at Cosco last night so I'll give them a try on Saturday. They were $2.89 a lb.
