Prime Rib/ Pics

Today I cooked my first prime rib. Went to Publix this morning and picked up a 4.7 pound bone in. After checking out Thirdeyes site and getting a few tips from Grandpas Grub and RRP I went for it.Gave the roast a lite coat of mustard and worcestershire to anchor the rub. Rubbed it down with Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express (awesome rub Chris). Got egg going to 240 with the Digi Q2. Went indirect until roast hit 125 internal, pulled and foiled while getting the egg up to 500 for the reverse sear. At 500 I hit each side for about 3 minutes and pulled. This was probably my favorite cook in the year I've owned my egg. Extremely moist and the flavor was to die for.Thanks for the help guys. Enjoy the pics and Happy Memorial Day!

    I loved rib roast on my egg. We never use the oven for roasts or turkeys any longer. It looks great well done. ;) B)

    Looks good!!! Glad GG and I could give you some help. Are you open to another suggestion? When I have a bone in piece while still raw and not rubbed I take a sharp long knife and separate the bone except on the large end so it will "hinge". Then rub the piece all over, including under that "bone hinge" and using butcher's twine I tie the bone back. It's easier to serve with the bone off after cooked. BTW don't give Fideo that bone first - most times it has some good gnawing potential over the sink! :laugh:

    Thanks for the info. It was kinda hard trying to slice it away from the bone. I knew there was a secret. Thanks again.

    Great job. I am a BIG fan of the bone in rib roast on the egg. I prepare it basically the same way you did. It's tough to beat.

    Pretty nice. I'm about 5 miles from it but its the first one I come to going toward Athens. I usually dont buy my meat there. They are usually a little high on everything. Im a star market guy myself.

    Great cook! Haven't done one of those in a while, and I'm inspired to do another one soon.
  • More great advice in the nick of time, the roast is getting that treatment and going on the egg very shortly.
