Looking for a Way to Kick Off Grilling Season? Try the Ultimate Beef Rib Sandwich Recipe!

As the weather gets warmer, grilling season approaches. Whether you’re cooking for your family or your friends, this beef rib sandwich recipe is the ultimate start to the season.

Although this recipe is easy to follow, the seasoning and the slow roasting combo make it taste gourmet. Start this recipe before noon so your soft and delicious ribs will be ready by dinnertime.

This recipe only requires checking in with the meat every hour to spritz it. It’s bound to become a summertime tradition for your friends and family.

For easy execution, use The Cooking Guild’s fillet knife, the Meater+ meat thermometer, and a reliable grill.

Using these three tools will guarantee that your ribs come out perfect every time.


  • Beef ribs (one rib per serving)

  • Chick-fil-a sauce

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Garlic powder

  • Black gold truffle rub

  • Garlic (3 cloves per serving)

  • Sourdough bread

  • French fries

  • Caramelized onions (¼ cup per serving)


  1. Trim off the fat from your beef ribs. The easiest way to do this is using the Cooking Guild fillet knife.

  2. Once you remove the fat, use Chick-fil-a sauce as a binder by rubbing it all over your ribs and seasoning with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and black gold truffle rub.

  3. Place a meat thermometer in the ribs (we recommend the Meater+) and smoke them at 275º F for 6 hours. Make sure to spritz the ribs every hour.

  4. Then, wrap the ribs at 165º F. Once the internal temperature reaches 203º F let the ribs rest for 30 minutes.

  5. In the meantime, roast some garlic and prepare french fries to assemble the sandwich.

  6. Once the ribs are done resting, spread the roasted garlic over toasted bread, add french fries and Chick-fil-a sauce, caramelized onions, and most importantly: your beef rib.

  7. Pull the bone from the rib and enjoy!

This recipe makes one serving per rib. Scale the recipe up or down to your liking. Prepare extra so you and your family can have delicious, easy-to-make leftovers the rest of the week.
