Sweet heat is what this meat is all about--these ribs smoke low & slow & are worth every last savory morsel.

      Liberally coat the ribs with the rub on all sides. Cover the ribs in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

      When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat for 15 minutes. Put the short ribs directly onto the grill grate and smoke for 2 hours.

      Remove the ribs from the grill. Increase the temperature to 250℉. Wrap the ribs in foil and cook for 2 more hours. (If they're not tender after that, return the foiled ribs to the grill until tender.)

      While the ribs are smoking, combine all of the ingredients for the sauce in a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
    • 6

      When the ribs are done, brush them all over with sauce, then return the ribs to the grill out of the foil and cook them until the sauce is set. (about 10 minutes)
