5lbs(8-10) beef short ribsweight includes the bones
Wipe excess moisture off short ribs with a paper towel.
Combine all the rub ingredients in a small bowl; then rub each rib generously with the mixture. At this point you may place the ribs in a sealed plastic bag and refrigerate overnight. This will produce the best flavor but it is not necessary.
To make on a gas grill: Light one side of the grill and when the temperature inside the grill reaches 300 ℉ place the ribs on the UNLIT side of the grill, close the lid and slow roast for about 3 hours, being careful to maintain the temperature.
In the oven: Preheat oven to 300 ℉. Place ribs on a rack in a roasting pan. Roast for about 3 hours.
You may cook them longer if you like your ribs with “fall off the bone” meat. This will probably take an additional hour.
May be made in the slow cooker too. Allow 8-10 hours on low and remove any accumulated liquid throughout the cooking time.
