    New to this forum. I have a 4' smoker on wheels with 4 rotisserie racks and the fire box at back. Set up to rotate over the fire and racks set to make meat drippings fall on the racks below to cook in their own juices. Have cooked boston butts, burgers, chops & a few vegetables. Going to cook aproximately 25 to 30 ribeyes this Wednesday for the fellow employees. Planning to just used Cavendars seasoning this week, not enough time to do much. Any advice on the perfect cooking temp. or length of cooking time for the perfect ribeye?

    Yeah, I'll try to get some pictures. There is a guy in Kennett, MO that builds them. He has built some 8 footers and some with fryers mounted on them. He farms and builds them on the side.

    Welcome to the SMF Mike, IMHO ribeyes are not smoking steaks, unless your gonna do a whole roast. Ribeyes are my favorite steak and need searing heat for 5 to 7 mins a side for medium rare. Look forward to seeing that pit[​IMG]

    Completed the ribeye dinner. The ribeyes turned out great. Tender & juicy, could cut with fork. Smoked them for about an hour and a half to 45 minutes at about 250. Also threw on some of those baked potatoes with the olive oil, garlic& herb seasoning and a couple of open foil pans of bbq beans. had some corn on the cob to go with it and we were all stuffed. No one wanted to do any work though yesterday afternoon. Thanks for the encouragment.
