This Thanksgiving Sandy and I stayed home and prepared a bit non traditional supper. The menu was: Prime Rib, Shooters roasted taters and mushrooms, asparagus, Sandys homemade apple pie and french bread. Pan drippings were fortified with concentrated beef broth for the au jus and the Prime was seasoned with sea salt, CBP, juniper, and garlic. I foiled in pan at 120 and pulled at 140F and was perfect medium rare. Not shown was horseradish sauce for me. LOL

Standing Rib Roast rubbed down with seasoning after olive oil slather night before

It may not have been the traditional meal but with as good as it all looks, I would have to say the heck with tradition.

Very nice spread.

Rick you did another fine job. I know that prime rib is not the typical thanksgiving day treats but you not quite right anyway. I do think that it is mighty good thou. Then I can tell by your growing waistline that you haven't lost your touch.

Rick, looks excellent, wondering what temp you pulled that rib at?  And how long did you smoke it?  What wood or woods did you use on it?

Awesome looking spread there Shooter!

I started drooling the other day, when you told me you were smoking one of these "Bad Boys".

I knew it would be perfect!

Taters look super too!---and the PIE!

Nice Qview too,

Great looking spread Rick, prime rib is one of my favorite cuts, but it's hard to get good PR in a resturaunt so one must do it at home for it to be right & yours looked right. The spuds looked absolutely mouth watering, any chance for a recipe?

I pulled the roast at 140F.  Was a near perfect medium rare.  The wood was Pecan.  Took just under 5hrs at 225-250F.  At 120 I put in foil pan and dumped a can of concentrated beef broth in to make the Au Jus with afterwards.  I sealed the pan with foil until finished.

Potatoes.  Russets,  sliced about 1/4 inch.  Mushrooms, sliced.  No real recipe for season but I use Lawreys Season salt, garlic , red pepper, and the traditional other italian herbs-thyme, oregano, and one stick butter melted.  At the last 10 minutes in 350 F oven I give it a sound shake of Parmesan cheese and let brown.   Stir carefully about 1/2 way through to insure all is coated.  Will take about 45 min or so to roast.

Another pic or so for good measure:

one question about carving. do you remove the bones before slicing or slice between the ribs?
