    well after a weekend off without a smoke and with the recent aqquisition of a huge rib roast the smoke is on!!! i divided the roast into sections, the two ends which weigh aprx 8 lbs each, and from the center cut i saved 4 ribeye steaks 2" thick. the steaks and one roast went to the freezer. i marinated the roast for 2 days in SuperVmans marinade. any who havent given it a try its great!!! thks V...after the marinade i made a basic brown sugar/salt/paprika/pepper/red pepper/smittees/gran onion and garlic rub.
    is in smoker now running at around 225, plan is to take to 130-135, foil and wrap and throw in cooler. hoping for med rare center with the ends more to medium doneness. this is my first rib roast, never made one indoors either so hoping for the best!!!!

    I pulled from smoker at 135 deg and foiled and wrapped in towel and coolered while waiting for ribs to finish there last hour of cooking. i think next time i pull at 130, was just a tad more done in the center than i had in mind. but roast turned out well, the tenderest roast i ever had and nice and juicy with a BIG beef taste. For a first rib roast i have to consider it a success. Its actually a fairly easy cut to smoke. so anyone out there dont be intimidated!!!!

    slice picture, i had planned it to be a lil more like med rare but apparently the time wrapped in cooler it kept cooking a bit...


    thanks for ckin my qview!!!

    Very nice Erain. Looks nice and tender. You may be looking for that "pink center", but the fact that ya marinaded it for 2 days in a dark marinade, may have taken some of the red out of the meat. Maybe not, I'm just thinkin out loud.

    Looks real nice though.[​IMG]

    good point dan!!!, as juicy and tender it sure didnt seem overdone but i was lookin at pics of yours from mebe a month ago and thats kinda what i had in mind. yep that marinade did change the color of the whole roast and may have gone that deep. i was too busy eatin to think that far LOL!!! thanks Dan!!!
