Another very fine smoke, Bear! You mentioned somewhere in a reply, something to the effect that the bark may not be quite the same with racked meat in a pan, and that is true. The pan tends to baffle the heat somewhat, and with liquid moisture real close, it tends to steam a bit more...really humid invironment.

My last ribeye was open grate all the way, but with a wet stock water pan as I didn't really want a bark. I do find certain dry rub bases can effect the bark as well, with some developing a good bark in a slightly dryer environment, and others which don't promote bark development at all, staying softer and some even getting sticky.

Anyway, I LIKEY!!!

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! 


Bear
Agreed. I'm still eating USDA Prime NYS for ~$5 a meal as well. I've been paying right around $10/lb for Prime ribeyes or Prime strips. And I've adjusted to better quality meat, so I'd rather have a smaller portion (8oz portions) of better meat, more often, than having a large Choice steak once or twice a month. 

Sure beats eating McDonalds for the same price, any day! That's for sure. 

Looks like a healthy dinner, that's for sure! Thanks for sharing.

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?
RB---They're called "Cooling Racks",

I got mine local for almost $2, but I only bought 3 of them.

Below are two places I found on the Web.

They are selling the 8" X 10" cooling racks for $1.53 and $1.35 each.

I'm betting if somebody was to call them, and agree to order 50 or 100 at one time, the price would be around $1 Each.

$1.53 Each:

These are actually "Choice". I wrongly call them Prime Rib like just about everybody does. My "Choice" Prime Rib is much better than any restaurant's PR I ever ate, even if they used "Prime" Prime Rib.

I know, and it's ok. 


The PR looks fantastic, no matter the grade.

Great Job Bear!

Questions:

1. Did you like Hickory or Cherry better?

2. Is Mrs. Bear liking smoked meat now?

Todd
Thanks Todd,

#1   Hard to say---I think maybe the Cherry.

#2   No---I cut the outer inch off of hers, so she doesn't get much smoke. Then I eat the trimmings from hers.

She gets all perfect pink meat without smoke or fat. I get the best stuff.

Thanks Rick !

I was pricing roasting pans, with a wire rack in them, and I thought "You gotta pay all that money for them, and you still have to wash them!!"---Why not get throw-aways!

This looks really good but a little pricey for me maybe if I find one at Costco I'll give it a try... What kind of rub did you use?

Just CBP, garlic powder, and onion powder, on top of a coating of Worcestershire (thick).

I got 6 meals out of this hunk of goodness----That's about $5 per meal---Cheaper than MacDonald's!
