There’s nothing quite like Smoked Beef Short Ribs seasoned with Louisiana hot sauce. It’s a wonderfully primal dish and one of the easiest meats to smoke. Short ribs are loaded with meat and cut from the bottom of the steer’s ribs above the short plate. And best of all, you’re looking at a relaxing all-day smoke to turn these ribs into a tender, tasty meal.
