Beef Short Ribs

Beef Short Ribs
Dry Rub
Salt and Pepper
BBQ Sauce

Marinate Short ribs in a dry Rub of your choosing overnight

Add salt and pepper to your level preference about 15 mins prior to cooking.

I set my green egg at 225-250 degrees and smoke for 6 hours. The last hour I baste the ribs with sauce every 15 mins. Make sure you cook the ribs with the bone side down. The short ribs will be done when the meat starts to fall off the bone.

Turkey Chili

  • Ingredients
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 Chopped Bell Pepper- I mixed green, red, and orange
  • 2 Fresh JalapeƱos chopped....Add more if you like it spicy
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 (28 ounce) can canned crushed tomatoes...I used fire roasted from Whole Foods
  • 1 (16 ounce) can canned kidney beans - drained, rinsed, and mashed
  • 1 (16 ounce) can of Black beans
  • 5 Cloves of chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons Jess Hall's seasoned pepper
  • 1/4 stick of butter


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Place turkey in the pot, and cook until evenly brown. Stir in onions, bell peppers and jalapeƱos and cook until tender. I add the chopped garlic towards the end of this process b/c it usually cooks quicker.
  2. Pour water into the pot. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for a few hours. The longer you cook at a low temp the better it will taste. 
  3. Garnish with onions and Cheese if you desire
