Beef short ribs (1 lb per person)


3 tablespoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Combine seasoning ingredients for rub in a Ziploc bag, mixing well. Remove what you need and store the remainder.

Wash ribs and pat dry. Rub with seasoning mixture. Place a disposable drip pan under the grates of the barbecue and heat to high. Wipe grates with oil to prevent sticking.

When grates are hot, place ribs over drip pan, cover and reduce heat to low.

Baste ribs while cooking with Honey Smoke Barbecue Sauce (or sauce of your choice). Baste once 20 minutes before ribs are done, and a second time 10 minutes later.

Average sized ribs are cooked rare in 25-30 minutes, medium rare in 35-40 minutes, and well done in 45-50 minutes. These times will vary according to the grill used and the size of the ribs. Small ribs may require less cooking time, while large ribs may need a little more time on the grill. Adjust accordingly.
