Smokin’ Boneless Beef Ribs

by zydecopaws on July 19, 2009

As I mentioned yesterday, there is a large gravel pile in my yard where the smokers normally go and that I would have to find somewhere to set up a WSM if I wanted to smoke today. Mission accomplished…

As for the menu, there were some beef chuck boneless ribs in the freezer begging to be smoked. The ribs were lightly dusted with salt, pepper, Montreal Steak seasoning, and some granulated garlic.

They were then put on the top grate of the 18.5″ WSM and left to cook for a few hours between 250-275°F.

After about 3 hours they were nice and tender and registered on average 175°F when poked with the ORANGE Thermapen.

I pulled them off, put them in a foil pan, and poured a little A1 sauce over each, then added about a cup of beef broth to the pan. The pan was then covered with foil and put back on the bottom grate of the WSM.

We love corn on the cob steam on the grill, but I’ve never done it on the smoker before. I had already drained the water pan before putting the beef back on the grill, and the corn received the normal treatment for the grill (soaked in ice water for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking). I loaded up the top grate with corn, and 30 minutes later it was time to eat.

The whole meal was delicious. The beef was tender and juicy, the corned steamed to perfection, and the leftover cabbage slaw from yesterday rounded out the meal.

As you can see from the picture above, there was a great smoke ring on the beef. It was tender enough that I could have served it as pulled beef; I may still do that with the leftovers. Not bad for another day of two firsts; first time cooking both corn on the cob and this type of beef ribs on the WSM…
