I have just finished my prime rib. It has hit my target temp but it is nearly an hour till dinner time. I know its good to let one sit for up to a half an hour , but how bout a whole hour?? should I bring the temp way down on the egg and keep it out there or bring it in and foil?? Thanks for the help


  • CentralPork,[p]Actually, you're just on target, IMHO ;) Wrap it in foil, and put it in a insulated box (cooler)... just like a brisket. Let it sit for that hour and it will be all the better for the rest.

    Wrap it in film 905 & place it in a styrofoam container. It will hold temp for about 2 hours.[p]BBQ contestants place it back in the smoker at a low temp to keep it warm until they turn it in for judging.[p]

    CentralPork, I'm doing my 1st PR tomm. How long did you keep yors in the cooler, and how dit it turn out?

  • Borders,
    I didnt actually cooler it. I put it on the slicing platter and covered it completely in foil. I held it there for 45 minutes before slicing and it was very juicy. It was not "piping" hot, but was very warm indeed. It was an eight pounder and I had seven guests. There is about 2 small (thin)slices left, so I beleive the consensus was it was very good. Good luck with yours tomorrow. Today was my first prime rib. If you have done butts, etc, prime rib seems to be a cake walk.
