My First BGE Thanksgiving

<p />I did a roaster and a prime rib for the Thanksgiving meal. Both were excellent. I can't wait for Christmas! I think that I will be doing another prime rib and a mess of ribs. Here Santa - Santa!

    <p />And the prime rib. Nothing fancy. I did rub the rascal down with crushed peppercorns, Kosher salt, garlic and added a few juniper berries for fun.

    Zeke, Your presentation looks better than mine did. How did you keep the wings in like that? My bird was laying there all spread eagle-like.

    RRP, like you I played the cards I was dealt. I did nothing except coat the bird with olive oil, Tsunami Spin and smoked using a small piece of apple wood. If this makes a difference, the roaster was a Perdue.

    Both look great! How did you time them...did they cook at the same time and temp?[p]QBabe

    QBabe, I did the roaster first because I wanted to have the dogs meal ready for them early so they would not pester us during our dinner. They love chicken. Both were cooked at 350°. The roaster took about 1½ hours and the prime rib was on for almost 2 hours.
