Rib Roast - Start on MES, finish in oven?

Discussion in 'Beef' started by smoking in ft. collins, Dec 28, 2015.

  1. I'm cooking a rib roast for dinner and want smoke flavor. I would like to start it on the MES and finish it in the oven.

    Plan is to smoke for 2 hours on the MES at 240* and then move to the oven for the remainder for temp control.

    Will 2 hours give enough flavor?

    You can, but why? Rib roasts don't take that long to cook in the smoker. I'd let it go the entire time. You probably will be looking at 4-5 hours depending on the thickness.
  3. More control over the temperature.

    You can do that, but I like to give mine light smoke the whole time, which is about 4-5 hours, like Case said.

    If you can control the temp for 2 hours in your MES, you can do it for 4-5 hours.

    Below are two of my favorites:

    Why do you need "more control of the temperature" over what the MES can provide ??
