    First time posting and first time smoking a Prime Rib!

    A big thanks for the tips from the great community, especially @Bearcarver! The Prime Rib was a huge success! So everyone deserves a pat on the back!


    15lb Rib Roast

    MES 40 Gen 1

    AMNPS with Hickory Pellots

    Rubbed half with just Salt and Pepper

    Other half with Jeff's Texas Style rub recipe

    Smoked 5 hours at 220

    Then put the thermometer in for the remaining 2 hours until meat hit 130 degrees.

    Pulled, rested and slice.

    Enjoy the view...

    Wow.  This looks amazing.  I like that color pink.  Is that considered medium?  So 130F for medium?

    Yeah I would call it right at the line of Medium Rare/Medium. I believe 130 rested is Medium Rare and 135 rested is Medium.

    How long did it rest for?  Does it coast for another +5F during resting?

    It only rested probably 10-15 mins (couldn't wait any longer) I dont know the exact temp at cutting but was pulled out of the smoker at 130 degrees. But yes meat will continue to rise during resting period but if i was guessing it probably stayed at 130-135 degree ballpark
