First Prime Rib

    Started out with an 11lb four bone in Prime Rib. Made up a mixture of cubed butter, kosher salt, cracked pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Mixed contents and coated the prime rib. Scored the fat cap and cut small openings big enough to insert garlic cloves just beneath the fat. Placed in pan and added beef broth. Applied rosemary and thyme allowing the extra to fall in the broth. Got my Weber going to about 450-500 and placed pan over direct to get a decent sear. Left it on for about 25 minutes. While that was cooking I made another pan with broth, garlic cloves and onion and placed in smoker with my cooking grate over the top. Smoker is at 220 at Bears recommendation and holding steady. Here’s a few pics to look at. Hopefully all goes well 846C5DB3-38DF-4220-A895-F64B64945ADB.jpeg 5A2F3459-A619-45A2-B809-57D31160559A.jpeg 4A690246-69F8-419E-B207-6D5C5940E54B.jpeg 2F65F5F4-06DC-417B-AA99-5565E82392BF.jpeg ACCB7F6F-E7ED-4F6D-9676-0964E8FDE843.jpeg 0B7EAD1F-51B2-4BE5-875F-DE038A7CD0AB.jpeg E8D15FDF-1E4E-4920-82AD-77CA12A12B0C.jpeg FFBEB2FB-0ED9-4400-9826-714135E5FDA2.jpeg B57F2491-095F-4C30-A725-F202D937B90A.jpeg 0229FA8F-7E3C-407D-864C-DA063BDCCC99.jpeg 6B616AC7-BEAC-454C-928A-34A59772726A.jpeg

Two hours in and This thing is cruisin like a Cadillac. Very excited to see my investment paying off 3E0D31DE-53FD-469C-943D-4FE10BDEAE04.jpeg
