    Smoked Prime Rib (Panned #3)

    Thought it was about time to smoke another Small Prime Rib, so I pulled the smallest one (5.18 LB) from the Freezer.

    I’m killing two birds here, as I am also in the middle of putting a New MES 40 Generation #2.5 through some tests.

    So after 3 days of slow thawing in my Fridge, it was time to get it going:

    Prepping (9-21-2015):
    Rinse, Dry, and cut a block pattern through the fat cap to the meat. Then give it a good coat of Worcestershire “Thick”, and put it on a Wire Cooling Rack, in a Foil Pan. Then apply some CBP, Garlic Powder, and Onion Powder. Then cover it with Plastic wrap, and put it in my fridge until Next Day Smoking Time. I used to add some Sea Salt at this time, but I cut way back on Sodium since a Dr ruined my Kidneys (among other things).

    Note: Worcestershire “Thick” is now sold under the label “Lea & Perrins Bold Steak Sauce”.

    Next Day (Smoking Time):
    11:15—————Preheat MES 40 to 220°.
    11:30—————Fill 2 rows of AMNPS with Hickory Pellets, and light one end.
    11:50—————Put Smoking AMNPS on left end of Smoking Rack in bottom position, just above empty water pan.
    12:00—————Put Roast on wire cooling rack, in foil pan, on Smoking Rack in 3rd Position of 6 position smoker.
    3:00—————-Wipe my clean Meat probe with an alcohol wipe & insert in center of Roast. Internal Temp is at 124°.
    3:30—————-130° IT.
    4:00—————-136° IT——Cut heat back to 140° and open door to get heat down to 160° quickly.
    4:45—————-138° IT——Remove Prime Rib from Smoker.

    Slice, plate, add sides, Take Pics, and Eat.

    Note: Putting Prime Rib Roast on a wire cooling rack in a foil pan did not seem to show any loss of smoke flavor, and makes for less clean-up needed.

    Also: We can’t believe this one was even better tasting than all the others.

    Thanks For Looking,


    5.18 lb Prime Rib after being at Zero Degrees since 12-27-2014 finally gets it’s turn in the Smoker:

    I don't know what to say. Your a master at prime rib.

  7. I think Bear should throw a couple of those PR's he has in the freezer into his pickup along with his MES and head down here to East Texas so I could have a hands on PR cooking lesson

    Sounds like a good plane to me !!

    Looks spectacular from the new unit. [​IMG]

    Any thoughts on the GEN 2.5 performance.

  10.  Another fantastic PR. Reading your posts is what made me smoke a rib roast and I never did thank you for that, so I will now.


  11. Where is the au-jus  or horseradish sauce ???

    Bear I see I am a little late for the party,but that is another fine cook ya did there.


  14. looks great bear! I have two smaller prime ribs still in the freezer, but I'm thinking about buying some more, as the market near me has them on sale for 6.72/lb for some good looking CAB "standing rib roasts".

    making my mouth drool!

    Ever since your step-by-step turned me on to smoked prime rib I am addicted to them. I check the price every time I am at the store and when they go on sale I quickly snatch one up.

    Actually, Both Mrs Bear & I have said "This was the Best One Yet" the last 5 or 6 times I smoked a Prime Rib"!!
