Prime Rib (Tied with best one I ever ate)

Mrs Bear & I had our own little Super Bowl Party.

This one tied the Best Prime Rib I ever ate.

I won't bore you with the details this time, because I did everything just about exactly like the one in my signature below.

The only changes I made were to use the rack & pan seen below, and I used Hickory Dust in my AMNS, instead of Cherry.

If you want to see a "Step by Step" on the one this tied, go to the bottom of this post & click on "Prime Rib", in my signature.

Rack & pan makes it easy to catch juices, and if anything sticks real bad, you can throw them away.

The pans are only about 40 cents each, and the 8" X 10" rack with feet are only about a buck a piece.

Made for each other:



After rubbing & resting over night---Ready for smoker:



Fresh out of smoker:



Closer look:



Ribs on left---Slices on right:



Closer look---Wanta see something really good---Left click on this picture, and zoom in!!!!!



Thanks for looking,

Bear

Thanks JMK!

I'm so glad I learned how to make these just right.

They beat every one I ever ate, and that's a couple hundred Prime Ribs over better than 40 years of searching for the perfect Prime Rib!

Perfect pink all the way through!  Great job.

When I left click on the pics it opens a new window that shows a smaller pic?

Thanks Dave!

That's weird what happens when you left click. Maybe somebody else can explain why???

It should open a new window with a larger picture (The size I put in).

Bear, for this time it looks like you smoked the roast in the pan.  Is that correct?  I went to the link for your full method and it didn't say anything about it there.

Yes, I'm trying to make it easier to clean up after smoking.

I didn't mention that, because the pictures show it, but I will edit this one & fix that.

I think using the pan makes it have less bark, but the taste is still just as good.

Thanks,

Bear

On Edit---I was going to change it above, but I noticed I already did say " [color= rgb(24, 24, 24)]The only changes I made were to use the rack & pan seen below, and I used Hickory Dust in my AMNS, instead of Cherry."[/color]

Looking good Bear - you must have found a forturne as much as you are making those - did you start a snow removal business? LOL

Thanks Scar!

This was only the second one I ever smoked, the first being a few months ago.

I just had the third meal from this 5 pounder, and I think there are at least another 3 meals left---maybe 4.

Since we don't eat a lot at one time any more, that means a Prime Rib Dinner costs us less than $5 per meal.

That's cheaper than McDonald's!

You've certainly got that down to a science...
Thank You Steven,

Great job Bear. I think I am going to be doing another one as well very soon. Probably for Valentines day. Where the heck do you get those racks for $1? Or are you just pulling my leg on the price?

Great Job Bear!

Questions:

1. Did you like Hickory or Cherry better?

2. Is Mrs. Bear liking smoked meat now?
