Beef Rib Philly cheesesteaks are a game changer! Full plate beef ribs, smothered in cheez whiz and grilled onions. Yes please! Check out the recipe below.


  • Full plate of beef ribs (typically about 6lbs)
  • 1/4 beef tallow (optional step)
  • 2-3 Tbsp of your favorite all-purpose seasoning
  • Cheese Whiz (or cheese of preference)
  • Hoagie Rolls
  • 1 Sweet onion, diced
  • 1-2 Tbsp Oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • Aluminum Foil


  • Using full plate beef ribs, trim any fat/silver skim from the top before
    seasoning with your favorite all purpose rub. I make my own using 1 part black pepper, 1/2 part kosher salt, 1/2 part seasoning salt and use about 3 Tbsp worth to season the ribs.
  • Season your beef ribs heavily, like you would a brisket and then place
    them on the smoker at 250° for about 8 hours. I don’t touch my ribs or wrap them through out the cook. It’s a really easy cook.
  • Once your beef ribs hit 203° and are probe tender, pull them off and let
    them rest in your Titan by Arctic Zone™ High Performance Hard Cooler for 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, add a 1/4 cup of beef tallow and let it rest in your cooler for
    another 30 minutes.
  • During the last 30 minutes I start to prep for my sandwich. Dice your onion and sauté them over medium heat in 1-2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter.
  • While your onions cook, heat up your cheese whiz according to package
  • Once your onions are done and your cheese is melted, slice your beef
    ribs. I remove the membrane and then give them a rough chop (personal preference). Slice the bones.
  • To a hoagie roll, add your beef ribs, onions and cheese whiz. Wrap it tightly in foil for a few minutes before slicing. If you want to impress your friends, add your bone into the sandwich, and then after its’s wrapped, slide the bone out before slicing.
