    I am looking forward to pics too. I have a 7 lbs rib roast (Choice not prime) I am going to do in my Bradley tomorrow. This is also my first time trying this. I used a recipe I found on the web, it used salt, garlic,black pepper, thyme, and olive oil. I put it on the roast Sunday, and it is in the fridge waiting. Can't wait to give this a try.

    Wife and I purchase the netting in bulk, helps keep a roast, turkey, chicken, etc. together in one peice and works great for hanging to smoke.

    ok this PM is cooking alot quicker than I anticipated almost 3 hours, started @275 droped to 220 after 1st hour, now i am sitting @ 109 internal temp. Any advice on how to keep it low until about 500 pm, i want to pull and tent @ 130 internal? Man I hope I don't screw this one up.

    Last two prime ribs I have smoked I brought to 150º and refridgerated for 2 and 3 days then heated back up with it tented and they were excellent. The first one I did was a test prime rib for X-Mas knowing for X-mas the time I had to smoke was only on Sunday and serving was not until Tuesday. The pre X-mas test and the X-mas prime rib were great.
    For you just to put the temp at a low setting for a few hours should be just fine.

    MossyMo,
    That's what I did, let it hang around 111 from 200 till 345 and have cranked it back up. Glad to hear that has worked for somebody. I let you know my results.

    no kink, just havent had thermometer to long, the cord still curls from the way it was packaged , but it did make me get up, go back and look again.
    what will a kink do anyway, break the wires inside? Thanks for watching out though

    not eating yet, I should have factored in my in-laws ever constant need to be late, I promise I will get more Qview of the slicing and all. After tenting it rose to 140, and has dropped and is staying right at 137. They better hurry or theyare gonna be eating th leftovers.
