Smoked Ribeye Roast in the SI#4

Discussion in 'Beef' started by paidin, Feb 18, 2015.

  1. My first cook in the Smokin-It #4.  7.7# Ribeye roast bought a while back for $4.99 a pound.

    covered in worchestershire sauce
    sprinkled all over with Montreal Steak Seasoning

    Sprinkled all over with garlic powder
    let it sit overnight in the garage since I did not have room in fridge and it got below zero outside tonight.

    put in smoker at 11:30am during lunch break from work
    foiled the cover of the smoke box and the floor of the #4
    put about 5-6 chunks of hickory from the bag of hickory at walmart
    plugged the unit in at set the temp a hair below 225 degrees
    went back to work
    called the wife to put in potatoes and egg into smoker because I forgot
    got home at 4:10pm
    cleaned the maverick probes and put one probe in the cabinet and one probe in the ribeye roast

    Time     Cabinet Temp     Meat Temp
    4:20     162                    129
    4:21     176                    129
    4:22     198                    129
    4:24     208                    131
    4:31     216                    133
    4:34     210                    133
    4:37     208                    133
    4:42     217                    135

    Pulled the meat and wrapped in foil to await company for dinner.  Tonights dinner was inspired by the Bear ;)

    Thanks for looking!

    It was cold outside today!  This is not how Tennessee should be like...  By the way, the smoker is under that black cover.  I bought it this past saturday and only had a chance to do the initial break in before the storm came down on us and said NO to any further smoking lest I expose the nice stainless steel cabinet to the elements.

    coated the ribeye in worchestershire, montreal steak seasoning, and garlic powder

    The first peace of meat ever in my Smokin-It #4!  7.7 pounds of meat does not look like much in that gigantic cabinet.

    I forgot to put the eggs and potatoes in so I called my wife had had her do it.  This is what I came home to.  I then put the maverick probes in the cabinet and in the meat.

    Right after I brought it inside the house from the smoker

    smoked egg peeled and ready to eat!

    super yummy

    sliced it open, perfecto!

    another view of tonights dinner.  With 7 people including 3 kids eating tonight, the meal came to about $200 per person, not including the meat!

    Thank you for looking

    That looks great. Was that a boneless roast?
  4. Yep that was a boneless ribeye roast.  I bought it on sale a couple Christmases past but sealed it up good in the freezer.  Still tasted awesome.
  5. Very Nice !  The one thing you could do next time to make it perfect ---------------------- Invite Me !!!        Great job  [​IMG]
