Blue Smoke • New York City Chef Ken Callaghan was inspired to make Blue Smoke's peppery beef ribs after eating his way through Austin. He finalized the recipe in his own smoker in his New Jersey backyard, then put them on the menu at Blue Smoke. You can also use pork ribs, which are more readily available.  More Great Comfort Food Recipes

How to Make It


Preheat the oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix the pepper with the sugar, salt and smoked paprika. Sprinkle both sides of the ribs with the pepper mixture. Place the ribs, meaty side up, on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 2 1/2 hours, or until the meat begins to pull away from the bones. Transfer the ribs to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut the racks into individual ribs and serve.
