Pre-Christmas Prime Rib
I just couldn’t take it any longer, seeing all the great PR post just pushed me over the edge.
I pulled a nice 3 bone out of the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge. Seasoned that sucker up yesterday to smoke today.

I am not going to go into a lot of detail because I use Bearcarver’s Step by Step

All Thawed, a little scoring and ready for the seasoning

I used Bear's seasoning  Thick Lea & Perrins ,Salt, Pepper

Onion and Garlic Powder

Wrapped up and back in the Fridge till Tomorrow

Waiting on the Smoker to come up to Temp

Holding steady at 225º

About 2 hours in

Dialed her back to 200º

Here is a shot of my fire, I saw where one member was

having trouble getting a low temp. I burned a split at a 

time and used my dampers

Man oh Man Look at all that Goodness 

Believe it or not that wasn't me it was my Wife

And the First Slice  Way to big so my Wife and I

Halved that slice

My plate

Closer Look

Grandson's Slice

Ribs for another day

Thanks for Looking
Hah-hah-hah!!! Uh...I mean, um...Ho-Ho-Ho!!! Another smoked PR Die-Hard!!! Lookin' mighty tasty. Gary!!!

That's what our traditional Christmas dinner is based on, as well. I have an 18lbr to share among 11 adults and a handful of youngsters...hmm, little ones aren't real enthused about meats like this. Ah, I just had a thought about adding a second meat in the form of a boneless ham to the charcoal rotisserie, with smoke, of course...should suit the little ones just fine.

Thanks for sharing, and thanks for getting my wheels turning on how grampa is gonna feed the little guys!!!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!

That looks to be perfectly done!  My wife is on me to make one for NYE, so I guess I too will go with Bear's procedure.

Thank's Guys and for the Points Charlie   Got another one on right now !!

That looks amazing Gary.  I can't wait to try mine on Sunday.

You are Welcome, I usually around if you need help. Be looking forward to seeing your smoke.

Hey send me a few pics of your smoker, the firebox and looking into the firebox

This is the best that I have right now Gary without going home and taking better pictures.  But I just noticed something.  I said that I usually have the bottom vent on the FB door wide open.  I just realized that when I do that, it closes up the 1" hole on the top of the door.  Maybe if I were to only open the bottom halfway it'd work out better for me.
Thanks DS  got another one going right now
