Prime Rib ?

Discussion in 'Beef' started by titus0327, Dec 29, 2009.

  1. Im gonna try my first prime rib for NYE (along with some ABTs and a Breakfast Fatty for New Years Day....cant wait), anyways, once I pull the prime rib (im gonna pull it at 120....i like it rare), im gonna foil / towel / cooler it for a half hour. My question is, do I then need to let it rest out of the cooler for awhile before cutting it (so the juices re-distribute) or is this the purpose of putting it in the cooler? Basically, can I cut right out of the cooler??? Im just trying to time dinner the best I can.
    Thanks for the help.
    And if this goes well Im hoping to get some QView up as well.

    Good luck on your prime rib smoke! As with any meat that's pulled from a very warm setting, I'd let the roast rest for at least 5-10 minutes before slicing.

    That's my $0.02

    I believe this allows the meat to finish cooking without drying out. Then you want it to rest for 10 minutes or so to allow the juices to redistribute.

    Yeah let it rest a few minutes before you cut it after you take it from teh cooler...10 minutes or so
