BBQ Beef Ribs

Greg fired up the Yoder YS640 Pellet Cooker for some low n slow Texas Cut Beef Back Ribs in this week’s recipe from Ballistic BBQ.  Watch the video below if you want to see how to make some moist, tender beef ribs with a killer smoke ring. Some of the Best Beef Ribs EVER right here!


First prep your ribs.  You will notice a very thick membrane on the back of the rack. There are actually two membranes. Use the tip of a butter knife up under that thicker membrane and peel it off using a paper towel, like you would with pork ribs.

For this cook Greg mixed up one pint of toasted porter beer with 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce. He used this mixture as a binder for the rub and to spritz the ribs as they cooked.  Apply the  mixture to both sides of the racks and and then apply the rub.

Let the rub “sweat” while you get your pit ready. Preheat the YS640 to 250ºF,  using hickory pellets.

Put your ribs on the grill.  After about an hour or so, check the ribs to see if they’re looking dry. After about four hours check the ribs to see if they are probe tender.

Once they are tender, baste the ribs with a savory BBQ sauce and let them cook an additional 20 minutes.

Beef back ribs come from the Prime Rib Roast! There is really NO REASON to wrap them during your cook! They have great marbling and it is tender high quality meat. Just keep them moist and let them cook!
