Pit Master: BBQ Beef Ribs

Join CHI’s resident Pit Master, Chef Bill Twaler, for this class designed to transform the way you think about barbecue ribs. In this course, Chef Twaler will teach you how to smoke intensely flavorful beef short ribs to ensure you make the most of an expensive cut of meat. You’ll also learn how to use the 3-2-1 method for slow cooking beef back ribs from the ribeye section of the cow and what to watch for if you’re cooking Texas-style beef plate ribs.

During class, you’ll produce rubs, sauces and side dishes to complement the smoky, flavorful beef ribs you prepare over the course of six hours. Register to wow your family with an unexpected and impressive meal as the weather warms up for grilling season!
