Dino Bones | Beef Short Ribs

Dino bones, brontosaurs ribs, or beef ribs? No matter what you call them, this recipe is a guaranteed hit! You’ll get a subtle red wine flavor with our special braise, but still have that rich, deep down beef flavor. Add a special twist with our Gold N’ Bold mustard sauce.

Ingredients - Braise

  • 1 Cup Beef Broth or Stock
  • 1 Cup Red Wine
  • ¼ Cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter

Ingredients - Spritz

  • 1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Apple Juice


First, score the uncooked ribs and trim off any fat or non-uniform meat. Once trimmed, pour olive oil over the membrane side of the meat. Next, coat ribs in our Grilla Grills Beef Rub and spread evenly.

In a deep-dish baking pan, combine beef broth, red wine, Worcestershire sauce, and butter to create the braise. In a small bowl or spray-bottle, combine apple cider vinegar and apple juice to create cooking spritz.

Preheat Grilla or Silverbac to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and place beef ribs directly on the rack. Every hour spray ribs with the spritz combination. Leave on grill for roughly three hours.

Once cooked, remove the ribs and place them meat side down in the braising mixture. Seal dish tightly with tin foil and place back on the grill for an additional 2- 2 ½ hours or until the internal temperature reaches 200 degrees.

Pull from grill and flip ribs so the meat is facing up. Sprinkle with beef rub and let sit until cool.

Cut, serve, and enjoy!

What Is a Beef Short Rib?

Forget about wondering where the dinosaurs came from or how they became extinct. A bigger question for beginning pitmasters is where beef short ribs come from.

The beef short rib comes from the beef chuck, which encompasses the upper leg, shoulder blade and even some areas of the neck. The meat is naturally a little on the tough side but can become very tender when cooked low and slow on a Grilla Grill.

What Goes Well With Dinosaur Beef Ribs?

Your side dishes should complement the flavors of your beef short ribs. If you’re going bold with your dino bones, you want your accompanying recipes to have a bit of a milder taste. Otherwise, the intensity is just too much.

Consider hearty breads and lighter salads as partners with your BBQ beef short ribs. Looking for a quick casserole dish? Baked beans or mac and cheese can be just what the dino bones doctor ordered. And if you want to include more color and vitamins in your meal, make a medley of sautéed veggies to serve with your grilled beef short ribs.

For dessert, go for the gusto with a decadent apple pecan cake grilled in your smoker. Or try something a little lighter and grill up some fruits to serve with vanilla pudding, icy yogurt or homemade whipped cream.
