First attempt at a Christmas Prime Rib with Q-view

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I purchased this 5.5lb boneless Prime Rib at Walmart and rubbed it with Lea and Perrin's, salt and pepper.  Then wrapped it up and stuck it in the fridge overnight.  I don't have enough seasoned logs for my log burner so I'm trying out my brand new WSM!  I'm going to try to hold the temp at 225 - 235 and pull the meat at 135.  Wish me luck!

I'm reading that I should pull the meat at 127° or so. Any suggestions? It's only been on the smoker for 1.5 hours and its already at 109! Seems fast. I think my Maverick is playing tricks on me.

I did one last year that did finish faster than I thought it would. Could try to lower the temp but it may also stall before you get to the temp you want.

Good luck with this.

Thanks for the info. My smoker temp is at 223 and has been for the past hour so i'll lower it a little. It looks like the meat is going to be done way too early, what should i do to keep it warm until dinner at 6:00?

Can't help there. Had ppl come 2 1/2 hrs late even tho they said they wanted rare PR. Unfortunately it was overdone but still real good.

Good luck to ya.

Pull it from the smoker and either put it in the oven or a cooler to hold for a while.    Put it back on the smoker later to finish.

Too late, i went ahead and pulled it at 133 and reverse seared it. We will have to eat early!

That's one option.   Another is to let it rest and cool just a tad (halt the carry over cooking) then wrap in foil and just leave it alone.   It will hold for a couple of hours and will still be nice and warm for dinner.

Thanks, i will try that. It has been resting in tented foil fo 30 minutes so now I will wrap it tight in foil and put it in a cooler until everyone is hungry. Sound good?

Pics taken after the reverse sear...Now I'm going to wrap it up in foil and towels and stick in a cooler for later.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words. If it wasn't for this website, I wouldn't have pulled it off.
