    I just got a small Traeger and I'm having a blast with it.  My kids are getting a little sick of my spatchcocked chicken (which I love to make and say!) but it is really wonderful.  I'm doing a prime rib this weekend.  I have a 3-4 bone cut aging in the fridge now.  I normally rub with Penzy's English Prime Rib Rub.  I'm debating whether I should give it a sear in cast iron on the range first.  Then I am thinking about going to about 275 on the dial and letting it go for a few hours.  Feedback?

    Hi Kelly Ann! First off, welcome to SMF where everything you need or ever wanted to know about low and slow cooking can be found.
    I like to do beef roasts in my mini-WSM at around 250° using maple and cherry wood for flavor. After the roast as been in the smoke for 3-4 hours, I jack the chamber temp up to 350° and put what we call a 'reverse sear' on the meat. Not sure about the temp controls are for a Traeger you may or may not be able to do the same thing.
  3. Hey Kelly, hello and welcome from East Texas Prime Rib sounds great, I am a stick burner, so not familiar with the Traeger
