I've decided to christen my new 30" MES this Sunday with a Prime Rib, but I've never smoked anything before, and I have several newbie questions -- 1) Wood: I've seen Cherry recommended in other threads, but I don't think that I can find any here. Would Apple work? I want something sweet but not overpowering. I think that Mesquite would be too much, and my only other option is Hickory ATM. 2) Rub, Crust, and Cooking Temp: I've never rubbed a Prime Rib before, and while cooking one in the oven, I blasted it at 500* for 1/2 hour so the crust would brown and then turned it down to 325* or whatever for the remainder. I'd like to add a light garlic rub to it this time, though. Do any of you have any tried and true rub recipes? Also, what temp should I smoke it at in order to get a good crust? I don't want to transfer it to the oven for that. 3) Water tray and Spritzing: Should I??? 4) Pull temp and resting: I'd like it to be closer to medium than medium-rare, so I'm thinking that I should pull it at 145*, wrap it in foil, and let it sit for 1/2 hour or so. Am I correct about this? I really do appreciate any help on this!
