i picked up a 14.16lb boneless ribeye at the store yesterday. I have never smoked one of these yet so I am going to give it a try and looking for any helpfull tips. Also i saw on another post smoking potatoes. how do you prep them? how long to smoke them? Also I am going to put onions, garlic cloves, and a broth in a drip pan below. Any other ideas or tips. How long does one of these usually take? I am looking for it to be a rare- medium

This is just a guess go by the thermometer but if temps are in the 225-235 range the whole time my guess would be 45-50 minutes per lb but as I said that's just a guess

How many are you cooking for?

If I had it, I would cut it to size for the number of people helping eat it. I would figure about 1 1/2" per healthy eater, with a minimum of about a 4" or 5" made at once. I only say this, because it's much better right out of the smoker than heating leftovers the next day. If you do the whole thing at once, that's enough for about 10 or 12 people (IMO).

To me that is like a Prime Rib without the bones.

You could also cut it into steaks, but I don't think that's what you're thinking of.

In that case you got some good info from the others before my post.

Don't forget the Qview---We all love Prime Rib & Ribeye!

Here's my new weekday smoker, look familiar?  Learn your smoker and you don't need a expensive one. Now I don't condone owning a big smoker if you want one.  I grew up with a built in outdoor patio.

Looks GREAT!

LOL----A man after my own heart!

I always figured it was worth burning your finger tips a little, by breaking off some of that tasty stuff along the way!

Can't wait to see some slices,

Nice job, Bowaddiction!  


I have a 14 pounder I plan on smoking next weekend for a family get together.

Not really sure, but I’m thinking I’ll dust it with coarse sea salt, coarse black pepper, and garlic powder and smoke it with a bit of apple or cherry.

so i rubbed it down with some mustard then beef rub and some other spices then i injected it with a creole garlic marinate then i put it on the grill at 500 each side for 5 minutes then smoked it the hickory chips for 8 hours and every hour or so i would spray it down with a mix of apple juice, jack Daniels and worcheshire sauce. So here is the final pictures it was incredible i also had a drip tray under it with beef broth, sliced onion, diced mushrooms, and chopped up fresh garlic cloves and made a sauce to go over the meat and made the rest of it for the mashed potatoes gravy i think next time i will smoke it for around 6:45 to 7 hrs for alittle more on the rare side other then that i dont think i would change a thing

It looks great 
I recommend a thermometer placed in it because no two pieces of meat will cook at the same rate the best way to get the same results every time is with the thermometer
