Dino Ribs (aka Plate Ribs, Beef Short Ribs, or Bronto Ribs), cooked on the Weber Kettle is a super easy barbecue cook for any level of cook!


  • Beef ribs
  • Salt
  • 16 mesh black pepper
  • Granulated garlic
  • Apple cider vinegar (ACV)


  • Start by preparing the beef ribs. Trim any excess fat from the top cap of the ribs, leaving a thin layer for flavor and moisture retention.
  • S/P/G rub. Use a ratio of 2 parts pepper, 1 part salt, and 1/2 part granulated garlic. Mix well.
  • Generously season the beef ribs with the S/P/G rub, ensuring all sides are coated. Don't forget to season the sides 
  • Fire up your Weber grill and aim for a temperature range of 275-300°F (135-150°C). Arrange the beef ribs on the grill with the thicker side facing the coals.
  • Place wood chunks on the coals to add a smoky flavor to the ribs. You can use your preferred wood 
  • Cover the grill with the lid, ensuring that the vents are positioned above the meat for optimal airflow. This helps maintain a consistent temperature and allows the smoke to circulate around the ribs.
  • Let the beef ribs cook for approximately 3 hours, checking occasionally. If the ribs appear to be getting too crispy on the surface, you can spritz them with apple cider vinegar (ACV) to keep them moist.
  • Continue cooking the ribs until they reach a probing tender stage or an internal temperature of around 200°F (93°C). 
  • Once the beef ribs are done, carefully remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C).
  • Slice the beef ribs between the bones to create individual portions. 
  • Enjoy the smoky and savory flavors of these tender beef ribs. Dive in!
