I've done oven-roasted rib roasts for Xmas in the past, but obviously had to smoke one this year after just buying my first smoker last month (GOSM). I used mesquite, and this 12lb badboy turned out a nice medium-rare, but I was actually aiming for medium (140F) for my wife's family who prefers it that way. I pulled at about 130F hoping for some carry over heat, but after 20+ mins of resting it only went up by 1 degree! I threw it in the oven at 450 for another few mins for a better sear, and also to get the temp up a little bit - Final temp of 136F and then served soon after. I'll know better in the future that the low and slow method doesn't allow for much carry-over heat I guess, and I'll also definitely buy a better piece of meat. Bought from Albertson's Grocery Store - Choice, but I find the Costco Choice is WAY better, and I had the Costco PRIME the day before at my family's Xmas party and the difference is obviously totally noticeable. Anyways, still a popular piece of meat at the Xmas party though. Check out the QView!
