First Prime Rib- MES 40

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

First time posting and first time smoking a Prime Rib!


A big thanks for the tips from the great community, especially @Bearcarver! The Prime Rib was a huge success! So everyone deserves a pat on the back!



15lb Rib Roast

MES 40 Gen 1

AMNPS with Hickory Pellots

Rubbed half with just Salt and Pepper

Other half with Jeff's Texas Style rub recipe

Smoked 5 hours at 220

Then put the thermometer in for the remaining 2 hours until meat hit 130 degrees.

Pulled, rested and slice.


Enjoy the view...

Congrats Andrew, that's a fine looking hunk of Prime Rib.

Wow.  This looks amazing.  I like that color pink.  Is that considered medium?  So 130F for medium?

Yeah I would call it right at the line of Medium Rare/Medium. I believe 130 rested is Medium Rare and 135 rested is Medium.

How long did it rest for?  Does it coast for another +5F during resting?

It only rested probably 10-15 mins (couldn't wait any longer) I dont know the exact temp at cutting but was pulled out of the smoker at 130 degrees. But yes meat will continue to rise during resting period but if i was guessing it probably stayed at 130-135 degree ballpark
