Smoked Beef Short Ribs

While I smoke baby back ribs all the time, I only tried beef ribs once. Way too fatty for my liking. Then I found short ribs and my life has changed!

So much meatier than pork ribs, and without the fat of full sized ribs, these babies were outstanding! Rubbed each rack with Traeger Prime Rib Rub. Smoked for 5 hours, where they rose in temperature from 40 – 160F. Wrapped one of the racks in foil and added about 1/2 cup of French Onion soup. Let the other ride, with an hourly spritz of apple cider vinegar.

Turned the temperature up to 225 and let ride for another 5 hours until the internal temperature reached 204. Let rest for 15 minutes and enjoyed! The picture above is from the rack that was not wrapped.
