PRIME RIB (New Best Ever!)

I figured it was about time for another one of the Prime Ribs I got on sale at Christmas time to take one for the team!
These Prime Ribs have been turning out so good, it's really hard to believe!
This one is the best one yet!
There is soooo much difference between a Smoked Prime Rib, and one not smoked!!!
BTW: This Prime Rib was 5.71 LBS.

Prepping (8-16-2011):

2PM-------Rinse, Dry, and Score through the surface fat.
2:10-------Coat with Worcestershire Sauce (Thick), and rub with small amounts of Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Onion Powder.
2:15-------Cover with Saran Wrap, and put in fridge for an overnight rest.

Smoking (8-17-2011):
12:00 Noon-------Pre-heat MES 40 to 230˚.
12:00 Noon-------Fill 1 1/2 rows of AMNPS to the top with Hickory Pellets, and light well with propane torch.
12:30 PM----------Put Prime Rib on second shelf, and place AMNPS on bars to the left of the chip burner assembly.
12:30 PM----------Also cut heat setting back to 220˚.
3:30 PM------------Sterilize & insert Meat Probe in center of roast.
3:35 PM------------Internal Temp is 110˚.
4:00 PM------------Internal Temp is 120˚.
4:15 PM------------Internal Temp is 125˚.
4:30 PM------------Internal Temp is 129˚.
4:45 PM------------Internal Temp is 133˚. Kill Power, cover with foil, and remove from smoker.
5:15 PM------------Uncover, take pics, slice, more pics, plate with sides, more pics & eat.
Meat coasted to 139˚ internal temp.
All Pictures can be zoomed in on.

Thanks For Looking!

Bear



Start with these things. (Click to Zoom in to see price on label):

All rubbed & ready for night-night:

This is the heaviest smoke you can get from an AMNPS, with only one end lit.
In my opinion, any more than this would be too much.
There are two ways of getting this much smoke.
One is filling it to the very top, as I did here, and lighting one end.
The other is to fill it "not as tightly", and not quite all the way to the top, and lighting both ends.

Finished smoking. I just killed the power.
I called the amount of pellets needed pretty close---I figured I'd be close, but......................
Zoom in & see there are about only 3 or 4 pellets unburned. LOL Shoulda played the lottery that day!!!

Looks Great as always!

We did a rib roast per your instructions last Eeaster and it was requested for every Easter going forward.

Your meat rationing is way better than mine, I would have mowed thru all those roasts WAY before now!!!

That looks delish!  Looks like your smoker is ALOT bigger than the mes30.  I can't fit my AMAZEN beside the smoke box like in your picture!  I couldn't zoom in when I clicked it only opened the picture in another window, what is the price on that bad boy?

Looks great.  I need to do another one soon.  Since I started smoking them I have stopped ordering them at restaurants because they just don't measure up.

Soo much better than restaurant PRs.

Thanks Biteme!!!

There is a reason to my madness----I try to make them last until the next sale!!  


I got one left, and I think Thanksgiving is the next big sale time.

You're killin' me Bear!!!!! That is one awesome breakfast! 

My dad asked me the other day what I thought about smoking a prime rib... I told him I might screw up an expensive piece of meat! (Had to throw in that disclaimer) After seeing this I hope I do get the chance! Woohoo that looks good!

Double Thank You very Much, Joe!

Bear

Thanks Willie!!!

I keep trying to get down to Al's temp. I pulled this one at 133˚ & it only coasted to 139˚. That's getting closer!!!

Thanks Buddy!!

I think the new AMNPS will fit right in there for you. It is 5 3/8" X 8". Your space should be 5 1/2" or maybe 5 9/16".

I don't know why some can't zoom in by left clicking. I'm not much with PCs, so I can't explain why. I can zoom in on anything that was bigger than the posted pic before it was downloaded, if they used the SMF "insert image" thing.

The MES 40 I got is usually between $349 & $399 (All Stainless) at Cabela's.

The one that Sam's has (Black outside walls & top---all SS interior) is usually $299.
