Well here goes nothing…yesterday it was 60* and sunny, today, not so much! 37* and rainy…. Well that’s normal here in the Pittsburgh region (Seattlesburgh).
Wanted a bone in prime rib, but my local butcher was gone for the day Tuesday when I wanted to buy so I bought the size I wanted but had to go with boneless…no big deal, but I like the bone and the flavor better.
Rubbed it Tuesday with a little SPOG and added some sweet basil, oregano, and then into the fridge for a 2 day nap. Here it is on the smoker with some hickory chunks running at 240*. Under is a onion, garlic, carrot, garlic, some rub seasonings, and a little beef base with some H2O for the Smokey au jus in the drip pan!
TBS rolling and off we go…I’ll plan to pull it at 130*, rest for 45min while I push the grill up to 500* and hit a nice sear for those who don’t like the mid-rare that it’s SUPPOSED to be served at… I’ll post up later… Great holiday long weekend with some awesome smoked meat…Happy holidays to all the smokers out there!
Here she is, the final work! Tasted pretty good, but i think I try a lighter wood next time, maybe a cherry/apple combo...happy smoking!
