Birthday Prime Rib

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Long time lurker, first time poster (love it here, thanks!).

 

 

Wife's birthday so decided to do something special and smoke a prime rib roast for the entire family.

 

It's her favorite meal, and she was skeptical about putting the juicy meat in the smoker (was relatively unsuccessful with brisket last weekend). 

 

 

Let me tell you though, this will not be last time we do this (but boy that price tag).

 

 

 

 

first time using new maverick 733 - found that the smoker display was overstating temp by 25-35 degrees (which may explain why last week's 7 lb brisket took 15+ hours and pork butt goes for over 18 at '230')

 

 

Used mostly cherry wood with some pecan. Spritzed outside with cherry juice every hour for last 3 hours. 

 

 

Went to internal temp of 120, then rested for over an hour under foil (family was late)

 

 

Came out better than I could have expected. Smoke was subtle, crust was perfect and meat was as juice as I've ever had 

 

 

Pretty basic I suppose, but thought I would share. Feel free to say not worth it.

 

Thanks!

Thanks! She did! Was definitely impressed although no necessarily sold on merits over just using oven (but i was).

Tell her she really doesn't want to be THAT person.  Good looking roast and wouldn't have the same flavor from the oven as it does when you spend the extra time and effort to produce it for the person that means the most to you.  Literally a labor of love.  (Explain it to her that way and maybe she'll let you keep playing with your toys.)

Didn't the house stay cooler?  Didn't she not need to cook?

Valid point particularly on the second one!

I may have go that route, although either way will keep playing with the toys.

 

 

 

 

Side question: what do you guys think about the marbling on that meat? The meat was packaged and priced as USDA certified prime. I didn't take a good look it at the butcher's as I trust the guy, but when I got home, the marbling was less than I expected. Any thoughts on that?
