Rib Roast: For mother-day

    It all started out last year around Thanksgiving. The local grocer had bone-in rib roasts on sale for a tad under 5.00 dollars a pound. So I stocked up on three of them. Normally I don't like freezing raw meat for later usage but I couldn't resist these. Since the the wife had already cooked two of them, and they came out pretty good - but they weren't real good. So I finally got my chance to earn my keep. I break out the WSM and fired up some RO(first time using the brand) and a few chunks of hickory. I will agree that RO does burn cleaner and longer then KBB. So a big shout out to @noboundaries a.k.a the Charcoal Nerd for the tip. I also got the chance to use the inkbird for the first time. The inkbird worked great as expected. My only complaint was trying to read the display. My old eyes aren't what they once used to be.

    Now off to the races...

    Couldn't honestly tell you how big this one was, but it had 4 bones. Added some L&P, salt, pepper, onion and gralic powder to the outside. Set the WSM up to run between 225 and 230* and let her fly.

    After about 5 plus hours I pulled her off at about 135* and let her rest a spell.

    Another shot...

    First slice...for mama.

    and my future slice
    Had too much grate space wasting away so I added in a quarter ham from Mckenzie's for some double smoked ham salad.


    Sorry no plated shots, but it was served with twice backed potatoes, and a broccoli cauliflower melody.

    Thanks for taking a peak.

    that is delicous looking, that should keep you in good graces for a while!! I always freeze meat when I get a deal on it I really don't see a difference in taste.

    That looks great Chris. Points on that cook for sure. I could eat rib roast every day if possible.

    Oh and shout out on that PBR I saw lurking in the background!

    Thank you very much bear - much appreciated. Two of our favorites also.

    p.s. I have been known to take a little peak at your recipes every once in a while - for inspiration purposes.

    Thanks Jim appreciate it. I don't dislike freezing meat, I'm more of a spur of the moment type of cook. I don't like planning ahead. I prefer to go to the grocers on the day of the cook and pick up what I feel like that day.

    Thanks Vol for the kind words and like. Maybe not everyday but pretty darn close to it. Yeah that dang PBR can keeps sneaking into the picture. Kinda like a where's Waldo syndrome.

    Thank you chop, it was to much for just the wife and I but we enjoyed it.

    Thank you Ray for the compliment and like appreciate it. I probably should have bought more then ten bags. They won't last all that long around here if we ever get nicer weather.

    Thanks Joe, I don't mind Med, but the wife like her steaks on the rarer side.

  11. You nailed it!

    Thank you both for the kind words and like. I really appreciate them. It tasted great, and I'm pretty sure I have taken over cooking the rib roast duties from my wife.
