Smoked Beef Back Ribs (Pellet Smoker Recipe)

5+ pounds of Beef Back Ribs
Beef Rub of Choice (Steak Rub is suitable)
Worcestershire Sauce
Beef Broth

Wood Pellets for Smoking: Traeger Hickory or Green Mountain Grills Premium Texas Grilling Blend


  1. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs.
  2. Cut away any other excess fat as desired.
  3. Cover the ribs with your beef rub of choice.
  4. Then cover the ribs with a light coating of Worcestershire sauce.  This will help the rub absorb into the meat.
  5. Allow the meat to rest at room temperature for 30-45 minutes.
  6. Set the Pellet Smoker for 180° F.
  7. Smoke at 180° F for 1 hour, Bones side down.
  8. Up the temperature to 245° F, and cook the Beef Back Ribs till the meat temperature reaches 165° F.  This may take about 30-40 minutes.
  9. Wrap the Beef Back Ribs in butcher’s paper that includes a mixture of 1/2 cup Beef Broth + 1/2 Tbs. of Rub of choice.  And continue to cook at 245° F, till the internal meat temperate is 195° F.  And a meat probe pokes in and out of the meat like butter. This may take about an hour.
  10. Allow the meat to rest for 30 minutes.
  11. Enjoy!
