  1. Picked up a 15 lb Rib Roast for Christmas Dinner, what do you guys use for a rub, just salt & pepper or do you go for more spices?

    Personally I rub with evoo the use salt, pepper, garlic, and sometimes rosemary. It's such a great cut of meat keep it simple and let the meat speak for itself. Some members really like using Montreal Steak Seasoning on it

    Right now I'm getting "Prime Rib" at $3.49 per pound. Basically salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a bit of paprika. I like bearcarver's recipe with the worsterchester sauce.

    What Piney said! Too good a cut of meat to overpower with seasonings.

    Wih a cut of meat like a Good prime rib you don't want to mask the flavors in the meat itself. So just a littl personally flavoring/seasonings should do just fine. Salt, Pepper, and alittle fresh Garlic. and smoke.

    I agree s&p and maybe rosemary and a little garlic.  Let the meat taste as good as it is
     
  9. 12:24 pm the roast has been in the smoker with hickory for about 3 1/2 hours and the internal temp is at 117º, probably another hr or so to go[​IMG].[​IMG]
