Thanks, thirdeye! Credit is all yours!

It got a little done cuz part of the family was caught up in traffic and had to detour. Put EGG as low a temp as possible and took it out at 130 instead of 125 degrees. I don't like cold prime rib and had to wait until everyone was here. Everyone had a great time, though.




  • Awesome...Made one myself and need to post some photos...That just looks fantastic!!

    Looks fantastic! Did you go direct or indirect?
  • Thank you all for your nice words! I did this indirect. "Age" the meat for four days. Meat was from "prime" from costco. Boneless so I had the fat down.
  • first time I used a Maverick remote, too. It worked great! I would otherwise be poking the meat every so often!
  • Thanks, Molly! why didn't I know of the BGE last year??!!
  • Thirdeye was coaching me via email! Thanks, again.
  • coming from you - that is a compliment!
  • And if you do that lots of juice drips out... best to keep the probe in (or out) as much as possible! Actually I don't even put a probe into the roast at first. Last 1 or 2 hrs is when I put it in..

    Nice lookin' cook, and thanks for the kind words. But let's face it.... you asked plenty of questions, did all the research, then did all the work.

    Doing that test cook the week before was a good idea.... and then pulling the trigger on a prime grade prime rib roast for the big day was a good decision as well.

  • doing the "trial" was good but choice grade was disappointing. Nothing beats prime grade! Thanks again. :)
