GRILLED PRIME RIB THE ULTIMATE WITH WOOD

Yes, prime rib is expensive and likely the reason so many are fearful to take this cut of beef to the grill. I’m going to take away that fear and show you just how your grill will respect this cut and produce the tender, buttery, crusty outside roast you want.

Although there are different opinions on whether to make a roast with the ribs intact or removed, I am someone who prefers to cook with the ribs in. I’ll give you tips on doing a boneless version as well if that is your preference.

Although I love Italian-style meatballs with traditional red sauce as a sandwich, I’m going to change up the flavors by making a Greek version. Then I’ll smoke my meatballs on the charcoal grill using charwood, which is a partially charred hardwood from SmokinLicious® that still retains a core of uncarbonized material to release wood flavorings.

Summary:

Smoked beef bones by using cooking wood chunks over the grill heat shields or gas grill diffusers are easy! The smoke flavor and slow simmer root vegetables are building flavor profiles for this unique smoked bone broth recipe. Simmering food with aromatic vegetables sometimes lacks taste that smoking wood chunks add. Read how easy it is!

One of my favorite cuts of beef to smoke and grill is the beef flank riblet. This is a cut of beef short rib known as flanken. In the flanken style of short rib, this thin cut, which is about 1/2-inch thick, goes across the bones so that each slice contains a few pieces of bone rather than between the bones as is done in traditional short ribs.

This is a popular way to cut the short ribs if you’re going for a Korean barbecue which we are kind of doing with our marinade that has Asian influences. I recommend doing about 4 pounds of flanken style short rib though today I’m doing 8 lbs. which means I’m doubling the recipe. The best part is these ribs don’t take very long to smoke on the grill.

SMOKED ROSEMARY BEEF SHANKS FROM THE GRILL

I’m back with another recipe for beef shanks that takes advantage of seasonal herbs with a simple smoking technique that can be done on your gas or charcoal grill. I’ve been busy in the kitchen with another seasonal harvest so I’m going to cook my beef shanks on the gas grill using my favorite two-zone cooking method that allows me to step away from the grill. Of course, I want some wood flavoring in these shanks so I’ll be using cherry wood chunks in a standard metal smoking box.

SMOKED BEEF SHORT RIBS

listen to this blog

 

Of all the cuts of ribs, this is likely my favorite. Found between the 6th and the 10th ribs of the animal, the meat on these ribs lays on top of the bones rather than between them like with back ribs. Short ribs require a method of cooking that will allow them to tenderize as they have a lot more meat, fat, connective tissue and flavor than pork ribs. Because of all that fat and connective tissue, beef short ribs need to be cooked to an internal temperature of 200°F.

Today, I’m going to cook my beef short ribs on the gas grill using an indirect method of cooking and wood chunks to bring great smoke flavor.
