Smokey Oven-Cooked Beef Short Ribs with Cowabunga Seasoning & BBQ Glaze - by Shane Mcbagely

September 9, 2016


"Smoked Beef ribs are pretty much my death row meal. Though it can be a faff firing up the smoker and baby sitting it for half a day. I've made this recipe using Cowabunga Seasoning and Smokey Schweet BBQ which when used correctly gives you a pretty smokey taste and a nice crunchy bark. It really does taste like you've been drinking & barbecuing all day" - Shane. 



1 x 4-bone Jacob's Ladder from your butchers (also known as beef flat ribs)

1 hefty handful of Tubby Tom's Cowabunga Seasoning

1 generous glug of Smokey Schweet BBQ Sauce

1 roll tin foil





- Preheat your oven to 140c


- With a sharpened knife, score the top fat of your ribs


- Sensually massage your Cowabunga seasoning into the beef.


- Line a tray with foil, place the ribs bone-side down and place in oven until very well browned/ borderline burned, (for roughly 1 hour)


- Once you have good dark crust on you ribs remove from oven, drop the temperature to 110c. 


- Using your fingers, cover the ribs in Smokey Schweet BBQ sauce, wrap in foil and return to them to oven for another 4 hours


- Take a nap


- Wake up


- Make a salad


- Throw salad in the bin


- Remove ribs from oven and allow to rest for 30 mins, 


- Dribble some Scorpion Slammer all over it if you fancy living life on the edge.


- eat.
