Preparation Method: Marinate and Smoke

Marinating Time: 4 to 8 hours

Smoking Time: 3 to 4 hours

Smoking Temperature: 225°F to 250°F (107°C to 121°C)


  • 3 pounds of beef ribs
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  • 1 bottle of your favorite beer
  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil


1. Start by seasoning the beef ribs with salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Make sure to coat the ribs evenly for maximum flavor.

2. Preheat your smoker to a temperature of 225°F. Place the seasoned beef ribs on the grill, away from direct heat. Close the lid and let the ribs smoke for about 3 hours. This slow cooking process will infuse the meat with a delicious smoky flavor.

3. In a large pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until they become fragrant and golden brown.

4. Next, pour in the beer and beef broth. Stir well to combine all the flavors. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

5. Transfer the smoked beef ribs to the pan, making sure they are fully submerged in the braising liquid. Cover the pan and let the ribs braise for another 2 hours. The low and slow cooking method will make the meat tender and juicy.

Once the beef ribs are fork-tender, remove them from the braising liquid and transfer to a serving platter. Let them rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Drizzle some of the flavorful braising liquid over the sliced ribs for an extra burst of taste. Serve with your favorite sides, such as coleslaw or cornbread, and enjoy the succulent, beer-infused beef ribs.
