Well after a chat session with Pinneywoods last night I comited today to a 6 lb chunk of prime rib. Man that is impressive piece of meat. Today is our 13 wedding anaversary and a woman that put up with me for that long deserves this. Plus I get to smoke it. Started off with a rub of EVOO followed by sea salt black pepper and a half a finely chopped garlic. Slobbered her up good and into the smoker. running 225-235 but mostly 230. I am using a touch of hickory but mostly pecan. Wanted to use a fruit wood but forgot to buy some while I was out today. Picked up these non fancy instant potatoes Jerry introduced me to while I was at his place this year. Dont laugh they are fantastic for $.49 a pack I know where are the pix... I actually took some but I am too dumb to get them off the camera. LOL it is new and they are HD gotta have the wifes help. Tossed a brisket in for good measure.. Hate to waste that heat. First thing I was really supprised about was how fast this thing is moving up on temp. I am used to pork buts that barely move in a half hour. I put it on about 4:00 and right before walking in the house it was already bumping 95 deg. this thing will be done by 8:00 I bet. Headded to 135 deg.
