This marinade adds a lot of flavor to your beef ribs. The acid from the lemon juice and vinegar will keep beef ribs nice and tender as they smoke.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: Makes about 1 cup


  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


Mix all ingredients. Place ribs in a container large enough to lay one rack flat. Pour marinade over ribs, coating completely. Let rest over night. Turn ribs over occasionally to allow marinade to soak in. Prepare smoker. Remove ribs from marinade and place in smoker. Boil remaining marinade for two minutes and use as a baste for ribs.

See Marinating Beef for marinating times.

Great recipe, marinades add so much to cheaper cuts of meat. In this economy it can really stretch your grill dollar. I use a bottled marinade called Dales Seasoning WOW. Saves me time and people love my ribs or any beef when I use Dales. But I love this recipe.
