  • I love Oak on beef. don't over do it thought with a good cut like a rib roast. One good sized chunk is plenty

    If you have the Jack Daniels chips, that's the way to go!

  • Agree with Cen_Tex; if you are doing a rib roast the cook time only needs one chunk.  Oak is a good choice.  Good luck!

  • Let the meat speak - it has a very loud voice and likes to sing solo. No smoke other than the lump is needed.

    Another for light oak. The touch of pls or helps pair the beef with a good oaky Cabernet very well. One of my favorite combinations.

  • I love lots of hickory and ribeye. I just did a 10 lb prime rib with Dizzy Pig Raise the Steaks rub plus some extra kosher salt at ~250 plus a reverse sear. It was great. 10 pounds for 10 people and not a fiber left.
