This chipotle beef ribs recipe yields flavor-packed ribs that are smoky and a touch sweet with an addictive heat that keeps you coming back. Like any good beef ribs recipe, this one starts with a dry rub which helps develop flavor and exceptional exterior texture while the sauce adds another dimension. Immediately upon biting into a rib, you’ll notice how tender the meat is. Then, your taste buds are greeted with sweetness, tang, earthiness, smoke and every bite ends with just the right amount of spice. Flavor aside, indirect cooking is the key to perfecting the beef ribs recipe. Using indirect heat is a far gentler cooking method that surrounds the ribs with heat to effectively cook thicker cuts without burning the exterior and creating an unpleasantly bitter taste. Instead, the sugar in the rub caramelizes as do the sugars in the sauce and the result is nothing short of impressive.
