Big Green Egg Ancho Espresso Beef Ribs

Recently, I have noticed quite a few people who I follow on Instagram posting about a new line of BBQ Rub’s from Lane’s BBQ in Bethlehem, GA. The pictures caught my attention and I wanted to try some of the delicious flavors on display. I reached out to Ryan Lane and he was kind enough to send me some of his rubs to try. This recipe uses his Ancho Espresso rub, which is really delicious and goes perfectly with beef! I wanted to cook something I hadn’t tried before and that came in the form of Beef Back Ribs (or Dino Bones). Now sit back, grab yourself a cold Stout, and enjoy this recipe for Big Green Egg Ancho Espresso Beef Ribs.

Beef Ribs come in two varieties: Back Ribs (meat between the bones) and Short Ribs (meat on top of the bones). I have done braised Short Ribs before but have never tried Beef Back Ribs.

For this recipe I borrowed from one of my favorite blogs Nibble Me This his Beef Back Ribs recipe. For my ribs I used a little Worcestershire and Lane’s Ancho Espresso rub… simple enough!
