  • Beef short ribs (By the whole rack) (Usually come in 5-6 bone sections)
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 can beef consommé
  • BBQ Bob’s 7Bones Beef Rub
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • Sriracha sauce


  • Light charcoal and set your grill or smoker to 275°F. (Set up for indirect cooking)
  • Place two chunks of hickory wood into the coals for smoke flavor.
  • Remove the membrane on the bone side of the beef rib racks.
  • Trim any heavy fat from the face of the rib racks exposing the meat.
  • Rub in a little vegetable oil to each side of the ribs racks.
  • Slather on a tbsp. of Sriracha sauce on each rack and rub into the meat.
  • Lightly dust each side with kosher salt then a moderate dose of 7Bones Beef Rub.
  • Place them in the cooker directly on the rack but not directly over the fire.
  • Cook for about 3 hours (you will see the meat receding form the bone).
  • After 3 hours place each rack meat side down in heavy duty foil and pour 3 oz. of beef consumme over them. Wrap each rack in foil tightly and place back on the smoker for approx. 3-4 more hours or until the meat is tender.


The best way to check the ribs for tenderness is to plunge a skewer or meat thermometer probe into the meat. If there is any resistance, the ribs need to continue cooking. (An internal meat temp guide is about 195°F -200°F)
