Mid-Week Rib Roast

edited April 2012 in EggHead Forum
Yesterday the family had asked for a rib roast.  I normally do reverse sear method but did not have enough time for the low-n-slow part.  So I went with an indirect setup 500* for about 20mins and then knock the vents and let it ease down to about 375*.  I also had a few hickory chunks in the fire.

It was seasoned with some EVOO, salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary.

Overall I was very happy with the results.

    That's my favorite way to cook the roast.  Cooked one earlier this week and it came out great.I'll have to try the rosemary next time.

    Turbo Rib Roast?

    It looks very tasty!  How long would you say it took using that method?

    I don't know if I would call it turbo.  Maybe "normal" vs. "slow".  I say this is more "normal" because sear-then-roast was the way we cooked them in the oven before I got the egg.  It probably is a point of view thing.

    The roast was bit over 4.75 lbs.  I did not keep a close eye on the time but it was probably 1.75 hours(ish).

    @Mickey - next time I'll send you an invite.  But, by the time you get to VA the food will most likely be gone :)
