I had a kryo packed standing rib roast in the freezer for about a year now. It's time. I ordered a prime rib kit from Curley's Sausage kitchen this winter and that is what I'm going to use. It came with 2 bags, a marinade and a rub.
I trimmed up the log and injected the marinade. I will start the smoke at 5 AM and plan on eating at 1 PM. I'm going to take it up to 145-150 because I have people who feel Prime Rib is raw meat and I want to be able to make it again. The directions are for cooking this in the oven so I e-mailed Keith Curley and went over my plan. I'm going to have a water pan under the roast through the whole smoke. If it looks like the bark is not the way I want I will pull the pan early.
When I injected the mix it smelled awesome. I could have started eating raw meat! Now I'm ready for putting the rub on and start smoking tomorrow. I expect this will be one of the livelier forums at 5 AM. I'm also making Hasselback potatoes that I learned how to make from C Farmer and Smoking B's Cookie Cheese Balls. The rest will be brought by my family. Happy Easter!
