BBQ Beef Ribs

Beef spare ribs are taken from the belly side of the cattle's rib cage above the sternum (breast bone). Beef spare ribs tend to be longer, wider, and sometimes more curved than their pork counterparts, and are cut from the prime rib rump, of which the thicker boneless part becomes the ribeye steak, and the upper tips of the ribs are then cut off and become short ribs.

Beef Ribs are great for barbecue. Prepare and cook beef ribs like pork ribs. Smoke low and slow to get a tender and tasty treat. Use a sweet or savory
(beef brisket style) rub, and complimentary sauce.

Beef ribs are easy to prepare and delicious to eat. The biggest challenge with beef ribs is smoking them long enough to melt away all the connective tissues. Beef Ribs can take longer, but for the amount of meat and taste you get its well worth the effort.
