  1. Double Smoked Ham & Prime Rib

    I will be using Bearcarver’s Recipe and method from his “Step by Step”

    Christmas Eve – Start getting everything ready

    Charcoal in Smoker, Propane Tank & Weed Burner Ready

    Rub down and season Prime Rib, wrapped and back in the fridge.

    Christmas Day:      Outside Temp 27°

    5:30 – Make Coffee

    5:45 – Fire up weed burner, lite charcoal and warm up smoker.

                 There was a thread on refillable grill and smoker starters

                    “ Mine is refillable”  Texas Size

    6:00 – Start trimming Ham and preparing for smoker

    6:30 – Smoker about 200 ° Put ham on (Note) I had planned on doing just as        

                 Bear had suggested with putting the fat in a pan above the ham, I didn’t

                 have enough head room and had to pull my top rack. Since I had

                 already trimmed my ham, I took several of the bigger, fattier pieces

                 and laid them back on the ham, using toothpicks to keep them in place.

    7:00 – Temp steady at 225 °

    7:30 – Put on the Prime Rib

    8:00 – Added another split and some charcoal. (Note) I put my charcoal in my

                 chimney, sit it on my side burner and start it that way, Quick, Fast and

                 in a hurry.

    8:30 – Checked internal temps, Prime Rib 61°, Ham 89° Smoker at 210°

    9:30 -  Checked internal temps, Prime Rib 77°, Ham 95° Smoker at 225°

                 Added a little more charcoal. Sunny, warming up outside temp. 44°

    10:45 – Internal temps Prime Rib 110°, Ham 106°

    11:15 – Internal temps Prime Rib 119° Ham 118°

    12:20 – Internal temps Prime Rib 132° Ham 122°  pulled PR and wrapped in

                   foil.  Waiting on Ham

    1:00 – Internal temp Ham 135° Put on Glaze (Bear’s Recipe) Opened up

                 damper to raise the temp, about 270°

    1:20 – Hit 140° finally, everybody was starving, eating as fast as I could cut

                 it up.   But !!!!  Well worth the wait

    Used hickory and pecan splits with charcoal

    Picked these up the other day

    $6.99 a lb.

    Good marbling

    Smoked ham

    Another view

    Getting ready to be prepped 

    Rubbed down and ready to be wrapped 

    Wrapped and ready to rest until tomorrow

    Texas grill lighter

    Everything ready for the big day

    It was cold this morning 27 degrees

    Trimmed up ham

    Rib Eye patiently waiting

    Prime Rib went on at 7:30 Ham at 6:30

    Another shot

    Frost everywhere 

    Around 10:00 AM

    This is how I start a chimney of charcoal

    Pulled Prime Rib, Ham still smoking

    Prime Rib getting ready to be foiled and wait on the Ham

    Ham finally ready

    Had to get a shot of wife's brussel sprouts with bacon

    Ham ready to be carved

    Prime Rib ready to be carved

    Aha   Nuff said

    Ham is fantastic

    Gary's Rib bones for later, (Didn't offer to share)

    #1 son cutting Prime Rib,, Cut a slice, eat a slice  etc.

    Oh yeah  Had some pulled pork wife cooked in slow cooker the other day

    had to put it on the smoker. (save for another day)

    These were FANTASTIC! #1 son said he eats prime rib all the time buy this was hands down

    the best he had ever had. The double smoked ham was super really kicked it up, everybody loved it

    When #2 son, daughter-in-law finally got here, he couldn't stop eating them both.

    I would like to thank Bear for his "Step by Step" on both of these.

    This was some of the best ham and prime rib I have ever eaten, not because I was the cook

    but because of Bear.

    Thanks for looking  and Merry Christmas

    Everything Looks fantastic, I'm with you on cut a slice, eat a slice. lol... MY PR wasn't as much of a hit yesterday, I loved it... tons of beefy flavor, but most of the family don't like rare, I said then you don't like prime rib... you just don't cook  PR well done. Probably should have served it shaved...

    I guess I'll start cooking London Broil to an internal temp of 2,000°

    Quick story...I made some pineapple habanero, peach, bacon, chicken skewers on Manday that I overcooked, was almost jerky like. Anyhow I was going to trash them when I seen they were all gone I said, "wheres that chicken"...the wife unit and daughter ate them and said how wonderful they were, surprised they didn't break their teeth.
