Doing a 5.5 lb bone-in ribeye roast this evening, w/Charcrust Roto Roast slight dusting plus olive oil peppercorn and kosher salt rub all over. A few questions, as we like em' rare to med. rare:
Recommended dome temp? 325-350?? or lower and slower?(we don't want to cook it for more than 1 1/2 to 2 hours)[p]Polder through the meat ends or through the sides with fat or bones?[p]Going indirect over an inverted plate setter on top of a v-rack with taters cooking in the pan and juices below. Love to hear from my Egg friends on this. Thanks in advance and .... Happy Sunday!!

p.s. Smokewood is combo of a little hickory, apple, and some wine-soaked oak.


  • Big Murth, I did a boneless rib roast last night about the same size.[p]I put it in the v-rack on the pizza stone (my plate setter is in the mail) and cooked indirect @ 375. Took about 2.5 hours.[p]I put the the polder top dead center of the roast, but I also took a "stick" thermometer and put it horizontally in one end to ensure I was getting accurate readings throughout.[p]Once it got close, I placed the stick thermometer in various places to ensure there were no raw spots. Pulled it at 135 internal dead center. Middle was med rare and the ends were a bit more done for the kids and wife's tastes.[p]Verdict: AWESOME[p]Did Gordon Weiss' red potatos as a side dish and they were equally delish.[p]Good luck!

    Skwerl X,
    Thanks Skewl-dude!! I'll probably pull at 110-115 and let it rest before carving. You/anybody else have suggestions on bones up or fat up??? Methinks fat up would be better for some self-baste action.

    Big Murth,[p]This is exactly how I always cook these. I do one for Christmas at my daughter's and get all kinds of raves. We do like it rare.
