Clean and trim short ribs. Season generously with Traeger Prime Rib Rub.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 250 degrees and preheat, lid closed, 10-15 minutes.
Place ribs directly on the grill grate and cook for 4 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
Stack two sheets of foil on a flat surface. Place ribs directly in the center of the foil sheets and wrap up like a packet leaving one end open. Pour in ½ cup water and close packet.
Place ribs back on grill for 2-3 more hours or until the internal temperature reaches 204 degrees.
Remove from grill and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing. Cut into individual ribs and serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy!
