    This prime rib weighed in at 4.5 lbs without bone. Simple rub of SPOG and nutmeg for color. Following Bearcarver's step by step took this to a final IT of 139 followed with a short rest before serving. Tender, juicy and full of flavor that is had to beat.

    For the first time I used the Pitmaster Choice pellets in my AMNPS.[​IMG]  Will do this again.

    Seasoned and ready for the smoke.

    This is a Gen 2 MES and have had some trouble with the AMNPS going out in the past. (Have tried all the tricks)

    As a trial I removed the factory vent and added this elbow with some holes in the temp. foil cap.

    AMNPS was steady and gave the meat a great smoke. Will finalize this mod. for future use.

    Saw this idea in another SMF post and it does work.[​IMG]

    Midway and the AMNPS is going strong.

    Sliced and ready for the taste.

    Fresh spinach salad with bacon, and some tomatoes to round out the meal.

    This year my Cherry Trees made it past a late freeze and produce enough for several future pies.

    Stayed ahead of the birds.

    This is an oven baked pie by by the Mrs.and some more cherry's to pit.

    Enjoy and Thanks for looking.

    Really nice PR . The color of the meat says Rare , come bite me [​IMG]  .

    How much did you pay /lb.[​IMG]   Why Nutmeg , personal preference or was it just for color , did it leave a taste[​IMG]

    Now , how about a recipe of that Cherry Pie  ( one of my favorites.). Thanks in advance .

    Old School.

    Prime rib was $9.99/lb. Not cheap but well worth it as this was a Celebration or my Retirement.

    Added the nutmeg just for color and fun. Could not taste it in the end.

    As for the cherry pie fix-ins, The Mrs. uses Betty Crocker as guideline and then adds her own special talent.

    It was great.
