Burnt ends BBQ - Perfect, juicy and delicious cubes of ribs


  • 2 kg short ribs without swearing
  • 4 tbsp grill rub
  • 2 tbsp sriracha chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter

I grill all year round and this dish is perfect for me at all times. Now, just before Christmas, you can also buy cheap ribs in the shop and it's perfect. Delicious, juicy and good cubes of ribs become magical after a few hours on a pellet grill. This recipe also has a video which you can see at the bottom of the recipe.

Step 1

This is not a difficult recipe, but it does take some time. Here, low and slow applies and then it is perfect to use a pellet grill/smoker. Start by removing any fat from the ribs and divide into large cubes of approx. 3 cm x 3 cm. Sprinkle over the barbecue ribs and give them a little "massage" so that the seasoning is distributed evenly on the pieces of ribs.

Step 2

Now move the pieces onto a wire rack. I grease the grate a little first with neutral oil. This means that they are not stuck later when they are to be moved into a baking dish. Move the rack with pieces of ribs out into the grill, which I have preheated to 130 degrees. Here they will now be able to enjoy themselves for 2 hours.

Step 3

Now transfer the pieces to a roasting tin and add honey, butter, chilli sauce and brown sugar. Mix well again and cover with aluminum foil. Place back in the grill and leave for 30 minutes. Then remove the foil and turn the pieces a little with grill tongs. Leave for 5-10 minutes without foil so they dry up a bit. Transfer to a tray and serve piping hot. These are so incredibly good and tender. Check out the video below.
