These Smoked Beef Recipes Have Loads of Flavor!

If you have plans to smoke back ribs, a roast or a brisket, one of these smoked beef recipes might come in handy. Some cuts are best cooked to rare or medium rare using a higher smoker temperature. Others require hours of low and slow cooking. Either way, beef is a good option for the smoker.

There are lots of beef cuts great for smoking. Some of my favorites include chuck roasts, rib eye steaks and tri-tip roasts, and that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the number of available cuts.

Some of the tougher cuts, like briskets, chuck roasts and ribs need to be cooked low and slow in order to bring out maximum flavor and tenderness. Cuts like rib roasts, tenderloins and steaks are best cooked at a higher temperature, and served at rare to medium.

Flavors used with these smoke beef recipes can be as simple as a dash of salt and pepper, or might include marinating for hours, then resting with a coat of dry rub seasoning for up to a day before going into the smoker.
