    hahaha - what a masculine title.

    Personally, I don't care for a smokey flavor in my standing rib roasts - I think it distracts from the lovely roast beef flavor.  I do like smoke for most everything else.  I think the mild smokiness from the lump is sufficient.  I'm sure other people will disagree.  I can't recall seeing "smoked prime rib" on a menu before either, not that there isn't anywhere....

    Blue Smoke in NYC at least used to do a Smoked Prime Rib as a Friday or Saturday night special .. I've had it .. it's very good.  That said, I agree with Nola - keep it to a minimum.  I would use maybe just a couple chunks and I would steer away from hickory, oak or nut woods. I would lean towards Apple and other fruit woods or maybe even Alder.

  • Cherry is a good flavor with prime rib or any beef.
    Evans, GA - 250 Reverse Flow (trailer), Large BGE, custom built cedar table (by me). When in doubt, smoke it.
  • It would be a costly experiment to try it with a rib roast if it did not work out. I would probably not try it just because of that - what if it did not turn out.....The mesquite was great on the prime rib steaks though.
