Units Scale
  • 4 lbs crosscut ribs or chuck short ribs, 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard


  1. Place the rib strips on a rack and apply kosher salt all over the meat.
  2. Brush the meat with yellow mustard, place it in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Pour a 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce in a foil pan.
  4. Put the ribs in the foil pan, ensuring there’s some space between each rib.
  5. Pour an additional 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce over the tops of the ribs to wet them and give them a little more moisture as they cook.
  6. Preheat the smoker to 225°F with indirect heat.
  7. Place the pan of crosscut ribs with the sauce on the grate to infuse them with the flavor of the Worcestershire sauce as they smoke.
  8. If you have a pellet smoker, smoke the meat at the smoke setting or the lowest setting for one hour and then crank up the heat to 250°F for the remaining duration.
  9. Once the ribs are done, pull them off the smoker and serve immediately!
