Smoked Prime Rib and Double Smoked Ham
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 along with charcoal

Aahh Nuff said
FANTASTIC double smoked ham
Rib bones foe Gary ( Did not offer to share)
#1 son cut a piece, eat a piece
Oh yeah, had some left over pulled pork my wife did in the slow cooker, had to smoke
it for latter on.
This was out a doubt the best prime rib I ever had, #1 son said he eats PR all the time and it was the best he ever had.
When #2 son showed up he couldn't stop eating it.
Thanks Bear for the wonderful "Step by Step" on both, Fantastic !!!
Thank you for looking and Merry Christmas
