OK after all of the posts about smoking a rib roast, I got the itch to do one. Albertson's was having a grand opening near the house and whole choice ribeyes were on sale for $3.99 per pound. I picked a few up...thinking of doing two 5 pounders or so for mother's day this weekend. I have a few questions...how many people does one 5.5 pound roast feed? I am having 8 adults and 8 kids over for dinner. We are planning to do sides (mashed taters, salad) and desert also. I was thinking I may need to do two 5 pound roasts. If I decide to do two five pound roasts will it take approximately the same time as what yall have been posting (about 4 hours or so)?
Any advice will be appreciated.
