prime rib success!!

On Wednesday my buddy shelled out $60 bucks for a 5 lb prime rib that he wanted me to cook on the BGE. Wow, the pressure was on--I had never cooked prime rib before. So, Thanksgiving day, I took the rib out of the fridge, seasoned with salt, pepper, and a little porter mustard. Fired up the Mini and the Medium simultaneously. Brought the Medium up to about 250 and held her there. Then, brought the Mini up to lava temps (800 F). Seared the prime rib on each side for 90 seconds, then transfered to the Medium which was set up with firebricks and drip pan, mesquite chips in the mix. Cooked at 250 - 300 for about 2hrs 45 minutes. Removed at a polder temp of 135, let rest until 140, sliced and served. Man, was it absolutely delicious. Maybe just a bit more medium than medium rare, but some in the crowd appreciate that. I would encourage everyone to do one of these--and even better if you get your friend to buy the meat!
