  • 3-4 lbs short ribs (about 6 nice ribs)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoons Swerve brown sweetener or Lakanto Golden sweetener
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


  1. Mix all the seasonings and then rub the mixture all over the ribs.

  2. Heat the smoker up to 270°F and cook the ribs for about 3-4 hours until the internal temperature is 200 - 205°F. If you want them less browned use a 230°F smoker for 2-3 hours.
