A great base needs a good counterpart. Freshly harvested elk short ribs, Chanterelles, and green beans pull in the sweetness of our cherry wood and only require a simple seasoning of salt, pepper and butter.

    Remove the ribs from the grill and wrap them in a double layer of foil. Place the ribs back on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook the ribs until the internal temperature reaches 125˚F then remove them from the grill. Do not let the ribs rise above an internal temperature of 130˚F or the meat will become extremely tough.
