They’re smothered in a quick homemade sauce with some fabulous liquid smoke and then cooked low and slow to complete and utter deliciousness.

These BBQ Shortribs will win the heart of any BBQ lovin’ fool, (like me). I served mine with a quick homemade broccoli salad and some mashed potatoes.

The sauce that these Shortribs are cooked on needs to be drizzled on whatever you serve them with. It’s that good. And if skip drizzling it on anything and just spoon it right into your mouth, I won’t know so I won’t be able to tell 😉

I used Stubb’s liquid smoke in the sauce and it gives such a good smoky flavor. If you skip it, you’ll lose a little bit of that depth of flavor. So don’t skip it!

These Shortribs are great for tailgaiting or parties because they have such a long cooking time. You can cook them early and keep them warm until serving, you can serve them immediately, or you can even cook them a day ahead and just reheat them in the oven in the sauce or throw them on the grill because you can’t get enough of the flames. You’ve got options, kids. And options are always a win. Enjoy!
