All rubbed down and ready for bed. Removed the popper and seasoned with McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning then topped off with a decent amount of Kosher Salt.
The Prime Rib is waking up and so am I!
Here's another pic after a night of resting and with the plastic wrap removed. I let it sit out for roughly 2 hours while I got the WSM ready.
I didn't lift the lid until everything was done but this was the temp when I placed it on the grill.
Here it is before I let it rest. I covered this pan in foil and let it rest for an hour while the taters finished up. The smell was AMAZING!
And now to the goodies! I decided NOT to reverse sear the meat and just smoke it. I smoked this prime rib for roughly 4.5 hours at 230 using only pecan wood. My wife took these pictures and outside of one pic being a little blurry she did an excellent job. EVERYONE loved the food!! My oldest daughter after a couple of bites said "this is like a religious experience" which got a good laugh from everyone LOL! Enjoy!
