    Hopefully you have an accurate meat thermometer. To get the best prime rib you are going to need one so you know when it's done. Other than that prime rub is pretty easy. I like to use a simple rub of Salt Pepper Onion And garlic. AKA SPOG. We like ours on the rare side so we pull ours out of the smoker when the middle hits an IT of 130*. We then foil it and let it rest for 30-45 minutes before slicing and serving. We prefer bone in prime rub, and so do our dogs! A good Au jus recipe here is Chef JJ's smokey Au Jus. I'd post the link but my phone won't let me. Use the search feature to find it. It is awesome, the Au jus that is. Cherry is my go to for beef. I like to run my smoker at 265*-270* for prime rib. Good luck and post some pictures, we all like to drool!

    My only suggestion would be to start out with a cheaper piece of meat. Lol. Hope all goes great for you. With a good therm you should be good. Don't forget to share some pics with us.

    I plan on getting a good wireless thermometer. I guess carry over cooking is when you take the roast out and cover with foil and let stand for 30 to 45 min?
     
  6. Yup - it's when the IT of the meat continues to rise after you remove it from the heat source...

    carryover cooking is when meat will continue to cook after you pull it...the heat energy continues from the outside in and the larger the cut the more you'll have.....5-10 degrees.

    Ok starting with the jalapeños and some chicken breasts,brined chicken in mixture of brown sugar kosher salt black pepper for 2 hours.then dry rub of kosher salt,brown,sugar,thyme,black pepper, and minced onions. Let set for 30 min smoking with cherry around 2 1/2 hours,pulled the cork in a bottle of pinot put them in the smoker and cranked up pandora.smells great.


     
  10. That smoke vault is so shiny.  I forgot what they looked like new!  Don't worry though, it won't stay that way for long.

    One thing I have learned about my smoke vault from my first smoke,while you are smoking,burning wood the first hour or 2 you have to make adjustments to maintain a 225 to 240 temp, but once the wood has done its theming it will pretty much hold a constant temp.
