They had prime rib on sale and I bought my first one to try on the smoker tomorrow. A five pounder. I have got a pretty good idea on how to cook the prime rib since I have done a roast before and it turned out very well. I also picked up the makin's for Chef JJ's au jus and had a few questions about the au jus. What's the best way to thicken the au jus if I wanted to do that? I was thinking that some mushrooms would be good cooked in the au jus. Has any one tried that? Is it better to smoke the meat on a rack over the au jus pan or could I lay the roast, rib side down, in the pan with the au jus.

As Gary said Corn Starch or Reduction or you can make Gravy by combining 1Tbs Flour and 1Tbs Butter for each cup of Jus you have, plus 1tbs each in a seperate pan. Stir this Roux over med heat until it turns Blonde. Whisk one tablespoon of roux at a time into the strained, boiling Jus until desired thickness. Simmer 5 minutes to cook out the starch and serve with the Beef...JJ
