  5. Prepare charcoal or preheat gas grill to 450°F / 230°C. Clean and lightly oil the grill grate.  For the best flavor, I recommend using charcoal instead of the gas grill.  When you add charcoal to the grill, pile the charcoal to 1 side.  We will use both indirect and direct grilling for short ribs.

  6. Remove the short ribs from the marinade and let any excess drip off; discard the marinade. Grill the short ribs directly over charcoal until nicely seared, flipping once to sear the other side.  After searing, move short rib to the grill surface not directly over the charcoal to keep grilling (about 5-6 minutes total). Transfer to a serving platter.
