Double Smoked Ham & Prime Rib
I will be using Bearcarver’s Recipe and method from his “Step by Step”
Christmas Eve – Start getting everything ready
Charcoal in Smoker, Propane Tank & Weed Burner Ready
Rub down and season Prime Rib, wrapped and back in the fridge.
Christmas Day: Outside Temp 27°
5:30 – Make Coffee
5:45 – Fire up weed burner, lite charcoal and warm up smoker.
There was a thread on refillable grill and smoker starters
“ Mine is refillable” Texas Size
6:00 – Start trimming Ham and preparing for smoker
6:30 – Smoker about 200 ° Put ham on (Note) I had planned on doing just as
Bear had suggested with putting the fat in a pan above the ham, I didn’t
have enough head room and had to pull my top rack. Since I had
already trimmed my ham, I took several of the bigger, fattier pieces
and laid them back on the ham, using toothpicks to keep them in place.
7:00 – Temp steady at 225 °
7:30 – Put on the Prime Rib
8:00 – Added another split and some charcoal. (Note) I put my charcoal in my
chimney, sit it on my side burner and start it that way, Quick, Fast and
in a hurry.
8:30 – Checked internal temps, Prime Rib 61°, Ham 89° Smoker at 210°
9:30 - Checked internal temps, Prime Rib 77°, Ham 95° Smoker at 225°
Added a little more charcoal. Sunny, warming up outside temp. 44°
10:45 – Internal temps Prime Rib 110°, Ham 106°
11:15 – Internal temps Prime Rib 119° Ham 118°
12:20 – Internal temps Prime Rib 132° Ham 122° pulled PR and wrapped in
foil. Waiting on Ham
1:00 – Internal temp Ham 135° Put on Glaze (Bear’s Recipe) Opened up
damper to raise the temp, about 270°
1:20 – Hit 140° finally, everybody was starving, eating as fast as I could cut
it up. But !!!! Well worth the wait
Used hickory and pecan splits with charcoal
Picked these up the other day
$6.99 a lb.

Ham ready to be carved
Prime Rib ready to be carved
Aha Nuff said
Ham is fantastic
Gary's Rib bones for later, (Didn't offer to share)
#1 son cutting Prime Rib,, Cut a slice, eat a slice etc.
Oh yeah Had some pulled pork wife cooked in slow cooker the other day
had to put it on the smoker. (save for another day)
These were FANTASTIC! #1 son said he eats prime rib all the time buy this was hands down
the best he had ever had. The double smoked ham was super really kicked it up, everybody loved it
When #2 son, daughter-in-law finally got here, he couldn't stop eating them both.
I would like to thank Bear for his "Step by Step" on both of these.
This was some of the best ham and prime rib I have ever eaten, not because I was the cook
but because of Bear.
Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas
