Last minute prime rib - Q-view of course

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

This is probably my 5th prime rib smoke.  I recently bought a stockpile of prime rib roasts @ 5.99/pound.  I was trying to figure out what to have for dinner tonight and I thought 'Why not prime rib'.  So I took a 4lb roast out of the fridge and put some seasonings on it (salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme) and put it in the smoker at 12:30 @ 225.  My excuse is that I am doing 10 pounds for Christmas Eve so I'm taking this opportunity to do reconnect with smoking prime rib.  Usually I prepare the meat the night before and let the spices meld into the meat overnight, in the fridge.  However, this was short notice so I didn't have time.

2 beers (Yuengling) and a cup of beef stock.  No carrots because I was out.  Simply onion, celery, salt, pepper, and thyme.

I love this perforated pan.  I use it for all of my beef.

Simply Pecan and Mesquite mixed.  The mesquite is on the bottom.

4 hours later I pulled it at 135 and let it coast to 140, wrapped in foil with a few spoons of the juice.  I put a bit too much pepper in the juice but it was still very good.

All in all it was a very good piece of meat.  The lack of marbling worried me but it was great for the price.

I am so jealous. You are eating prime rib and I ate some frozen chicken sandwiches. I  am still waiting for prime rib to go on sale around here.

I think I'm going to my butcher for the Christmas Eve meat.  It is $10.99/lb but it will be a much better quality product and I know that it comes from 20 miles away, grass fed. Sorry for the poor pictures; I used my phone.

Prime rib looks delicious! They just went on sale here at Publix for $5.79. I was hoping they would go lower, but I picked up 4 - 5lb. one's yesterday. Might go back & get another 4 today.

It tasted great.  It wasn't my typical melt in your mouth prime rib but it had a great flavor.
