A Griller’s Guide to BBQing Beef Ribs Like a Pro

Gnawing on meaty beef ribs so tasty they make your mouth water is the main reward of a great BBQ. However, there is a true art to grilling beef ribs to perfection on the barbecue. Here is how to get it right, as well as where to buy the best ribs in Halifax. 

Slow and Low

Most grillers who fancy themselves experts when it comes to BBQing quality meat will agree that the best approach to cooking beef ribs is slow and low. In other words, for maximum tenderness and flavour, it is recommended to cook them on a lower heat for a longer period of time. Ideally, you will want to cook them for around two to three hours on a heat no higher than 325 degrees Fahrenheit (163 degrees Celsius). No open flames allowed! 

Another great tip is to invest in wood charcoal when cooking your ribs over a charcoal grill. This quality charcoal will inject it with that restaurant quality ‘smoky’ flavour that you just cannot fake. The same effect can be achieved with a smoker and a gas-fueled grill. If you are using the latter, soak a few wood chips in water before firing up the grill and adding them to the flame.
