Short Ribs with Red Wine

The rich rib meat and peppery sauce goes great with a nice full California Zinfandel. This recipe works well smoked or in the slow cooker.

This recipe takes 2 days so plan ahead. In this recipe we use both a smoker and a slow cooker. If you want to use only one method, I prefer the slow cooker. The wine adds a nice richness.

Short Ribs with Red Wine


    Prep
  1. Place short ribs in a zip top bag with ½ jar of Big & Tangy sauce.
  2. Marinade for 24 hours or more.
    Cooking
  1. Get your smoker going (or you can use a smoker box on your grill).
  2. Remove the meat from the marinade. Place ribs into the smoker, or on the grill off the heat with the smoker box on the heat.
  3. Smoke for 2-3 hours to partially cook the meat.
  4. Remove from the smoker and place into your slow cooker.
  5. Add remaining sauce and red wine.
  6. Cook for 6 hours on low or 4 hours on high until the meat in tender.

The marinade time is variable depending on your schedule, so it could take 30+ hours total time for this recipe.

Sticky Sweet Pulled Pork

This has to be one of the easiest and best tasting pulled pork recipes you'll ever try.



  1. Prep pork by cutting away excess fat.
  2. Dissolve brown sugar into vinegar. Fill turkey injector with solution. Inject throughout pork into thicker parts of the meat.
  3. Rub pork with BBQ spice rub and place in fridge for 30-90 minutes.
  4. Start smoker and remove pork from fridge.
  5. Place pork on the top level of the smoker. Close it up and let cook for 2 hours.
  6. After 2 hours check meat temperature by placing thermometer into thickest part. If it isn't 100 degrees put it back in until internal temperature reaches it.
  7. Once pork reaches 100 degrees start basting with grill glaze. Go lightly at first since you'll be doing this for a few hours.
  8. Continue cooking and basting until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
  9. Remove from smoker and place in a pan to rest. Once slightly cool begin pulling apart into shreds.
  10. Toss with remaining sauce and serve.

You'll need a turkey baster and smoker to make the most of this recipe.
