    Got a good deal on a 4.4 lb standing rib roast.  Decided it was time to smoke my first rib roast on the WSM.  Based on this, it will NOT be the last!

    Acme runs a sale on these once in a while.....


    Rubbed down with olive oil and some Montreal Steak seasoning....


    Smoked at about 230 in the WSM with some hickory.  Pulled it when it hit 130, foiled and rested....


    Sliced.....nice beefy juicy goodness!




    My wife and I loved it.  We WILL be smoking more of these!!

    Happy 4th everyone!

    Looks Super[​IMG]

    Could be the center-fold in a "Meat" magazine.

    At 230˚, how long did it take to hit 130˚ internal?

    Thanks Bear!

    It took just over two hours to hit 130.  Temp may have been a bit higher than 230 for just a bit -- but I'd say it averaged 230, and the WSm holds it well.  It cooked much quicker than I expected.  I may go a bit longer next time.  I love it bloody, but my wife likes a bit more "medium rare."
  7. Looks wonderful....but is that a great price on that ...... $11.59 a lb ?

    Look at the red sticker -- he paid $6.99/lb which isn't bad for PR at all.

    Also, nice looking PR, there, JAK!  A little rare for my taste, but most people like it that way. [​IMG]

    It looks awesome John  [​IMG]

    What I do is place the thermo probe dead center and take them to 135 then the crowd that likes them mooing can eat the center pieces and those that like it a bit more done can eat the outer pieces and I can sear a piece for those like my father who won't eat anything less than med well.

    Yes sir there John you did one heck of of job there. I really do like a good hunk of meat like that from time to time. You really did it right and I like what jerry told you about the probe and some folks like their meat on the more done side. I guess they will come around soon enough of.

    Thanks Barney.  11.59 was the regular price -- I guess they want to make sure you see how much of a deal it is.  The sale price was 6.99.  Well worth it!

    Thanks mm!  It was a bit rare for my wife -- but she liked the ends.  

    Thanks so much Pineywoods.  I did use the probe as you described.  I pulled it at 130 -- next time I'll take it to 135.  My mother in law is somewhat like your father in law.  She won't touch anything that isn't....well done!  I will make this when we have her over, but I'll be putting her slice back on to ruin it  cook it well done for her (well, that's just my taste speaking!)

    Thanks mballi!  I'm not sure my MIL will come around....but that's ok!

    Rob -- thanks so much!  That's my favorite too.  Photography is my other passion -- and I'm now trying to combine the two (cooking and photography).  They say we 'eat with our eyes" -- I think it's so.  Good photographs goes right along with that.

    Thanks again for the comments everyone!

    i used to want to be a photogragher........until i found out that most of them lived a hungry life!

    Same here Rob.  Now it's just a hobby that I enjoy.  I have a couple of friends that have gone into the photography business.  It's hard to make a living at it.  So for me, it's just something I do for enjoyment.
