Well the in-laws where over for Christmas today and I smoked up my first Prime Rib. They paid for the meat and I smoked it sounded like a fair deal to me. haha. We just got back into town this morning so I didn't have time to rub the roast until an hour before it went on the smoker. I used some Worcestershire, pepper, sea salt, garlic & onion powder. Next time I will rub it and let it sit at least over night. I smoke it in my UDS at around 250-275 with some hickory chunks and I took it to 136 then pulled it and let it rest. It was very juicy and just the right amount of pink. Being this was my first prime rib I was very happy and the mother in law said it was the best prime rib she had ever eaten.



Just going on the smoker.



About to take a quick rest.



Ready to slice.

Yea I was going to rub it before I left but I got busy and it just never happened. Next time I will do that or at least put a bit more seasoning on the outside. We didn't want to put too much on being it was our first one. I figured I can always add a little extra salt on the meat on my plate if I need but I can't really take it off.

I didn't realize that prime rib can taste just as good heated up the next day. Now I am really pissed I didn't stock the freezer. I better go out today and see if anyone still has a sale going one. Why is it that it's always around Xmas time they have sales but never any other time?

WOW, now that does look perfect!   


I'm going to have to see if I can't find a prime rib on sale today since I'm off work all week!  Excellent smoke and great Qview!

I solve that problem by not including any salt in my rub.

I add a little before I eat it, but Mrs Bear doesn't.
