1/4 Cup Hot Sauce
Coarse black Pepper
Your favorite beef rib rub or Pit Boss Sweet Heat Rub
4 Pound Rib(s)
If you’re going to make smoked beef ribs, you might as well make them with big, sweet and savory spices. We’ve got the perfect recipe for bold flavors with generous amounts of beef. It may take some time, but this is one recipe you can set and forget for a few hours while you go catch a movie or do some chores around the house.
This beef ribs recipe recommends smoking the ribs at 250°F until they reach an internal temperature of 200 to 205°F or when the probe slides in the meat like butter. Smoking at 250°F allows for the meat to remain juicy as it cooks a little bit faster than if you were to smoke at 225°F. Don’t worry, you should still get plenty of that smoky flavor at this temperature.
In order to get those hot and sweet flavors, we recommend applying hot sauce as a base and then rubbing them down generously with our Sweet Heat Rub, salt, and pepper.
Resting your ribs in foil for up to one hour in a dry cooler will allow all the juice and flavors to settle into the meat while keeping your ribs warm and tender.
Note: It is recommended to use Classic Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.

For even more juicy flavor, spray or mop your ribs with beef broth every hour on the grill.
