    Well, the other day my buddy came over and dropped a prime rib and asked me to smoke it. Thank god all of you on here have posted so much information cause I am still new to all this. Especially Bearcarver...thank you sir.

    So i scored through the fat in diamond pattern. Then I cooked down some balsamic and worcestershire sauce to thicken it up a little. Let it cool down and slathered it all over the meat. Then I put the simple rub of sea salt, black pepper, onion/garlic powder, and cayenne powder. I wrapped it up in plastic and put her in the fridge from 1400 til 0930 the next morning. Preheated my MES to 240 and kept it there entire time. I used the Jack Daniels wood chips because they have an AMAZING aroma.

    My friend requested it a little less rare than most people do it so I cooked it til it was 144 internal, took 5.5 hours. Took it off and wrapped it in foil for one hour and sliced it up. Was 148 before i sliced it. Blew my socks off.

    Nice job.  Last step is to bring your buddy over from the Dark Side and convince him that mid rare or even medium tastes SOOOOOO much better    :)   (Apologies, couldn't resist :)  )
