    Made my first attempt at smoking a prime rib for Mother's Day and have to say I may never order from a restaurant again.  Turned out amazing.   Used the Jimmy J's Au Jus recipe to finish it off.

    Applied a light rub the night before and then pulled and let get to room temp at 630am.

    Put on the smoker at 10am and randomly checked IT about every 1.5hrs.

    Smoked for roughly 5 hrs @ about 210 using mesquite and cherry wood.

    Pulled when IT hit 135* and then let it rest in the cooler for about an hour.

    What a fantastic looking prime rib.  Congrats on such a fantastic smoke.  That comment highlighted in red above is a VERY common result of the delicious creations we smoke in our backyards.

    That's Great, and Thank You!!

    I thought it looked familiar.

    I don't think taking it to room temp in 3 1/2 hours is a good idea though. I would go right from the fridge to the smoker, and not probe it for the first 3 hours.

    Just FYI.

    Tasty looking prime rib! The only way to make it better is to dry age it then smoke it. Oh man is that good! Search here for Mr T's dry aged prime rib.
     
  9. Beautiful! At what point did you foil it?

    Thanks,

  11. That looks great man!  [​IMG]   Nice job  [​IMG]  

    I agree with Bear - I wouldn't let your roast warm up like that before putting it in the smoker...

    Ken, with Prime Rib, you foil it for the rest stage after it has come off the smoker.
     
  13. Well what a beautiful meal you prepared! That must have been fantastic, and the photo really looks wonderful too! A fabulous holiday meal I bet! Great job! Cheers! - Leah

    Terrific looking piece of beef. As someone who worked on the road a lot, home made is always better! Keep on smoking!
