These beef ribs are for you to do in your oven! Since moving to Dallas, I have learned a whole lot more about Texas style barbecue. Now although in Texas they live by the perfect smoke for beef ribs. You’ll achieve the same depth of smoky flavor in 2/3 of the time.

Cooking Tips:

Removing the membrane is a small thin piece of skin, covering the bones. Sometimes it’s already removed.

Only buy hickory liquid smoke. You can find it in the condiment isle near the steak sauce.

Can you make ahead?

Freezer: After you cut beef ribs and the cool off, individually wrap with foil. Then store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the freezer for 5 months max. Thaw 48 hours before using.

Fridge: After you cut beef ribs and the cool off, store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
