    Yes I left it in the pan the whole smoke. It was sitting on the bones so the meat was above the liquid. When I foiled it I kept it in the pan as well, I just put a piece of foil over the roast & sealed it up around the edge of the pan.

    I used a combination of hickory, oak, and pecan. I think you could use just about anything & it would be good. It is such a good cut of meat.

    I got two full roasts frozen  from a steer we butchered a couple months ago.   I was saving one for xmas and wondering what to do with the other one.

    I now know what I am going to do with the other one!

    Thanks Al  looks like a total smoking victory.

    Congrats on a great looking PR there Al....I know you've been waiting to pop the cherry on one of those, glad it worked out so well for ya. Can't believe there are no comments from your 'pals' on here about your cardioligist being on stand by etc. with all that red meat consumption and cheesy potatoes to top it off....lol. Did I miss a pic of Judy gnawing on a beef bone?? LMAO over your comment on calling it a 'beef pop'...classic
  6. Nice Al. I love me some prime rib. That one looks to be just right. [​IMG]

    That looks cooked perfectly to my liking. Bet it was tasty. How long did it take and what temp? Did you use a thermometer in the meat? Did I mention- YUM YUM YUM?!?!?[​IMG]

    Hot dang! That's rare, like you said! Looks pretty tasty to me, though!

    Man, you can't beat a good beef & taters meal, IMO...if there's some veggies on the side, that's OK, too. Well, I am rather fond to lobster, shrimp, scallops and clams, but around here, it's raw/frozen or pre-cooked/frozen, so not the best to work with. You can get live lobster in a handful of surrounding stores, but don't forget to ask to borrow their butcher's saw so you can leave a limb on the counter on your way out the door...wicked prices. But, hey, I live in beef country, so...

    I take my PR's to 145* myself, and it still has a good dark pink tone and plenty of juices at that temp. The family is slowly turning more towards the rare side of beef. It used to be that I couldn't get the wife or my girls to touch a steak that wasn't well-done. I finally convinced them that med-well wouldn't chew like shoe-leather and would have much more juices. I've almost got them eating medium steaks now, and med-rare rib roasts...takes time for sure. My 2 oldest boys like beef the way I do (med-rare), while my youngest boy is about where the girls are. I guess that's part of what parenting is about...teaching them how to enjoy the finer things in life when they have them.

    BTW, our whole beef ribs are in the 8-9 dollar range here with sales for 5-6. It wasn't long ago when we could get it for 2.99 on sale...now a really good sale is 4.99. Just be ready for everything to go up, if you haven't already been seeing it...it's coming, unfortunately. So, eat well, when and if you can, while it lasts, I guess.

    Very nice smoke, Al! Taters & all!

    I smoked it at 210, and it took about 3 hours to get to 125. Then I foiled it & set it on the counter. It took another 30 minutes to coast up to 135. Then we sliced it. Yes I used a therm in the meat. I didn't insert it until about 2 hours into the smoke.

    Thank-you guys for all your great comments. FYI if you live in the South & have a Winn-Dixie store in your area, their ad just came out yesterday & they have rib-eye roasts for $4.99 a lb. I might just have to get 1 more for the freezer.

    $4.99 per pound?

    Was that "One more rib roast for the freezer" or "One More Freezer for the rib roasts"???

    Yea I know Bear. It's getting out of hand, but you know how long I have been waiting for this sale. I'm going to go look at them then decide.
  19. Awesome PR! it's exactly the way my family likes it,Heck my teenage daughter looks at everybodys beef when we cook and gets a ill if somebodies is more RED than her's , guess we raised her right. Can't wait for the PR to go on sale around here!
  20. Great looking Prime! Excellent job and nice pics Al and bonus points for the Black and Tan!
