one of my wife's friends asked me if i could do a prime rib for her, it will be a x-mas gift for one of her friends. I told her i've never done one before but i would sure give it a try. it's a small slab a lil over 4 lbs. from what ive have read in the forums, smoke at 225 and give it between 50 min to an hour per pound to get it to 130 degrees. which would make it a rare cut. once it sits for about 1/2 an hour it should rise to about 135 or so which should be a lil above rare.
so far i gave the meat a quick rinse and patted it dry, than i gave it a light rub of olive oil and sprinkled on a mixture of garlic powder, black pepper, salt and a lil parsley flake and wrapped in saran wrap and placed in the fridge til noon tomorrow.
if there are any other tips...please let me know.....i will be using cherry wood for flavor in the MES 40. Thanx
