BBQ Glazed Smoked Beef Plate Ribs


Featured

Ingredients

4-5 pound rack of beef plate ribs, trimmed and cap removed
Yellow Mustard
Granulated garlic powder
Kosher salt and fresh ground peppercorn, to taste
Oak wood smoking chips or chunks, soaked in water 1 hour prior to use
1 lager beer
Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, Apple Habanero
Fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish

Cooking Instructions

Preparation: Before smoking, remove ribs from refrigeration and rest covered until near room temperature throughout. Using a sharp chef’s knife, remove meat-side fat cap if still present, but leave bone-side silver skin in place. Pat the rack dry with paper towel, brush entire surface with thin layer of mustard, and liberally season with garlic, salt and pepper.

Preheat the Smoker: Preheat off-set smoker or grill (positioned for indirect cooking) to 275°F. Apply soaked oak wood chips over heat source and commence the cook when the dark billowing smoke thins and turns blueish in hue.

Smoking: Lay ribs bone-side down and smoke with lid closed, for approximately 6 hours. Intermittently spritz ribs with beer throughout the cook, beginning after the first hour. In last 15 minutes of smoking brush one caramelized layer of Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce upon another, until the internal temperature reaches 205°F and a probe moves through the meat like butter. Remove ribs from grill and brush one final time with sauce. Loosely tent with tin foil for 30-45 minutes and set aside to rest.

Plating: Carve ribs between the bones and serve individually or family-style. Finish with a simple garnish of fresh chopped herbs, plate alongside your favorite fixins’ and pair with ice cold beverage!
