Thread: Prime Rib!

  1. #1

    Default Prime Rib!

    Spring is here and though I don't really need an excuse to smoke, I wanted to try out a prime rib to see how it would turn out.
    I started out by seasoning the meat about a day before with kosher salt and seasoned black pepper, I ended up trimming the fat cap to allow the salt and pepper to better penetrate the meat. Then just before smoking, I rubbed the top of the roast liberally with butter, garlic, thyme, and rosemary.
    I used 2.25oz of apple wood (Next time I will use less)
    Smoked it at 200F until the roast reached an internal temp of 125F. I pulled it off and tented it in foil to rest in an old camp cooler for about an hour.

    The cook was a perfect medium-rare, but the smoke flavor was a little strong for my liking. I think next time I will try cutting it back to about an ounce of wood to just give it a slight kiss of smoke.

    Have you tried prime rib on a smokintex?
    Is there anything that you might do differently?

    I really like the way this turned out, just a bit too much smoke.

    Thank you! I was really happy with it for my first attempt. Didn't want to screw up a pricey chunk of meat.

    She is a great helper. She's even figured out how to open the smoker a time or two and help me clean it out if I ever forget to wipe up those tasty drippings!
