    Hey gang-

    Looking to do something special this year...maybe prime rib in the smoker, but what else? What are some of the more interesting ideas you guys have for the holidays?

    Smoked Goose is another unique idea.  I like the suckling pig notion too.  So many meats, so little smoking time!!  [​IMG]

    For Christmas I usually do prime rib & goose.
  7. Well... I always do a prime rib as I will again this year, but thinking of adding a ham also. 

    If you smoke it.....they will eat.

    Once you go prime rib you'll never go back. Their some of the best meat I have ever eatin out of the smoker. Now there's a bunch of different meats that you can smoke. I have gone with Goat, Duck, Goose, and alot of venison. The coice is yours and the world is at you beckin call.

    Anyone have a good prime rib method for the smoker?

    Rub or no rub?

    Do a search for Bearcarvers prime rib. While I have not used his recipe yet, it gets rave reviews, but dont tell him or his head will swell up

    Christmas Eve Prime Rib, planning to smoke it, Cioppino. Christmas day, any prime rib left ?, Salmon, big Costco fillet, smoked or grilled; Braciole, Italian stuffed flank steak, braised in tomatoes, garlic and dash of wine, that's it - makes its own amazing sauce.    always Scotch Eggs for Christmas morning. great with beer!

    Portion wise, do you figure a pound per person, before cooking?
  18. Lots of great suggestions here. How about a nice pork loin rack roast maybe even a whole ham with a nice sweet potato or yam dish? It's hard to beat prime rib though.
