the prime PR i recently cooked as well as the first time around came out medium rare throughout, which is great for my culinary tastes. I wonder though, both times I smoked it, was bone or length side parallel to the floor.

If I somehow hooked the rib perpendicular towards the floor, would the top most portion of the rib cook warmer than the med rare of 139f? Let's say 143f?

I use the ECB.
