15 pounds charcoal briquets
2 pounds hickory wood chips
1 (4 pound)
standing rib roast, bone in
Simple but the flavor is out of this world! For real bone-deep flavor, cut the roast off the bones, slice back the fat cap, then rub seasonings all over the meat, put the fat cap back in place and tie the bones back on with cotton kitchen string. Not only will the flavor get all the way to the meat, but just cut off the strings and carving will be a snap!
It was good, but the meat was done in half the time the recipe said.
My husband cooked this for our mothers on Mothers day. This was such a hit that we rcvd calls days later thanking us for the wonderful meal. This is something that we will cook again!
Note that it does take alot of time but is WELL worth the wait!
I recommend cooking at 225 to 250 degrees F 10 minutes per pound for rare, 15 minutes per pound for medium, or 20 minutes per pound for well done. Use a meat thermometer to confirm doneness.
Patience is a virtue. Now I know where that proverb originated . . .
I prepared according to the review by Vorcha--seasoning under the ribs and fat cap, then tieing back. I let it cool overnight in the 'fridge.
Cooking took me 10 Hrs but I stalled it after about 6 Hrs because I used a small, upright smoker and the meat was almost to temperature much quicker than I expected. So, for the remaining 4 Hrs I smoked the Prime Rib with those amazing bourbon-soaked hickory chips.
I brought it back up to temperature in an hour for Christmas dinner and perfection!
instead of hickory chips, try apple chips, the flavor is amazing!!
Superb! My husband and I tried this recipe this past Memorial Day, and it was absolutely magnificent. Thank you for sharing this one, it was well worth the wait just as you mentioned!
Even tho I don't eat red meat, I must admit, this was gorgeous and my family savored and devoured every last piece. Thanks Ed!
