There’s nothing better than eating good food with friends around a campfire. Sometimes that meal might just be a boil-in-the-bag stew. But sometimes it’s fun to make something truly impressive. Something like beef ribs. While preparing such a large, dramatic cut of meat may seem daunting (you might be thinking: Does this involve a lot of equipment?), the opposite is actually true. Beef ribs are incredibly simple to cook and don’t require much more than fire and time. Wes Siler is going to show you how.
