Slow Roast Kahlua BBQ Beef Short Ribs.
At one time these small joints of beef bones were cheap and used mostly for making stock or roasted brown sauce. Now they have become extremely expensive and have become a prime short rib menu item. Braised or slow crock pot done they are hard to make a bad meal with.
Most restaurants just chop up an deep fry them like chicken wings or pork rib bites. thekitchenman likes to brine the small portions in bourbon, scotch or rum to break down the tissue and the sugars when BBQed low and slow for several hours. The choice is yours to which liquor you choose. Kahlua or Tequila works well for making the meat great for a fajita. After a good 6 hours in a soaking session rub in some salt pepper, beef base, mustard powder, wasabi or horseradish paste. Massage each piece and let rest while the bbq or oven is preheating to a continues 275 degrees and holding. Place each portion on a part of the grill that is not over the fire. Indirect heat for the next 4 hours. Open only if you should see extreme smoking. Checking quickly once and hour is permitted. Don’t forget to have full tanks of fuel. After the 4 hours the meat should appear crispy and with some sugar bark charring. Now is the time to choose your favourite sauce and just before serving apply generously and place over the flame to get short ribs that will make you smile and do a fist pump.  I like a few portions along side some garlic mashed potatoes and some of the pulled meat with wilted spinach.
