    I smoked a 7 lb. rib eye roast (pretty much prime rib) on my drum today. Gently massaged it with EVOO, then coated with Double Q rub. Double Q makes killer bark.
    Fired off the drum with a load of lump and half hickory, half cherry for smoke. The drum smoothed along at 250°-275° without me having to babysit it. The ball valve for air control is the deal.
    Smoked the roast to 135° internal, pulled it off, wrapped in foil and let it rest 45 minutes. Perfect medium rare. And killer bark!
    I smoked 9 fattys also.
    Some pics -
    After we ate I sliced it and vac sealed two slices to a pack, fine eats later on!
    And did I mention the bark??? Killer!
    The slice on my plate is the end slice, my favorite because one side is all bark. It gets a bit more done though. The closer to the center the more rare.
    Oh, and I smoked some taters. Rubbed generously with bacon grease and rolled in herb rub. They eat fine!

    As the label says "A Kansas City Original". Here is their site -

    It wants to install a Microsoft add on when you go to it, be aware.
    I have not tried their sauce, bet it is good though. The rub is my favorite.
    They have some recipes on their site also.
