First off, you will need
3.5 to 4 pounds beef short ribs
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon chilli powder
1/2 tablespoon sea salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/3 cup GF BBQ sauce (I use my homemade recipe)
2 to 3 tablespoons GF beer (I use New Grist)
Soak you wood chips for 1 hour.
Meanwhile remove the white membrane on the bottom of ribs.
In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, chilli powder, sea salt, garlic powder and pepper.
Place the ribs on a double layer of foil and sprinkle the spice mix over the ribs.
Rub the ribs with the spices using up all the spices.
Fold the foil over the ribs and allow to sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes to an hour.
Prepare smoker according to manufactures instructions.
Remove the ribs from the foil and place them, bone side down, on the racks of the smoker.
Light the smoker and smoke between 225 and 250 degrees for 4 hours.
Mix together the beer and BBQ sauce.
Open the smoker and quickly mop the sauce over the ribs. (I couldn't take a picture here as you have to do this fast so your smoker doesn't flare up)
Close the smoker up and continue to smoke for another 2 hours.
Remove the ribs from the smoker. You can add more BBQ sauce if you like but I prefer them without added sauce.
