Important Ingredients

Beef Ribs — I highly recommend getting a three-pound beef rib rack from your neighborhood butcher. Because there are several cuts of beef rib, you must indicate that you want a beef rib RACK.

A rack of beef ribs will resemble a rack of baby back ribs, but will be much larger.

Smoked Paprika — This recipe’s smoky flavor is enhanced by the use of smoked paprika. If you don’t have smoked paprika, you can substitute plain paprika. Add a drop or two of liquid smoke to ordinary paprika if desired.

Barbecue Sauce — This is purely a matter of personal preference, so use any barbecue sauce you choose.

My beef ribs were coated in a Kansas City-style sauce, which added sweetness and was extremely excellent! If you like a dry rib, leave the barbecue sauce out of this recipe.

Chef’s Advice

  • The longer these ribs are marinated, the better they will be! If you don’t have much time, put them in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Wait the full two hours before grilling if you have the patience.
  • While the rack cooks, keep an eye on the grill temperature. Aim for a temperature of 200° to 250° Fahrenheit, or as near to 250° as possible. If using a gas grill, make sure the meat is cooked over indirect heat to prevent overcooking.
  • Allow 10 to 20 minutes for the beef ribs to rest off the grill before serving. I prefer to use this time to set the table and prepare my sides. While resting, the meat will absorb any fluids, retaining most of the excellent taste!
