Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos finally....28 days. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos all trimmed up. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos removed from the bones and retied back up for easier slicing and rubbed down with a paste of EVOO, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic, onion powder. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos after Egg, rest, and sliced Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos served up with mini Yorkshire pudding, creamy polenta, and sautéed green beans. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos best beef ever. the aging process is so worth it. much more concentrated beef flavor. started with 9 lb roast and after drying and trimming, ended up with 7 lb 3oz. Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

  • Looks great. What did you trim off?

  • thanks...I trimmed a sliver off the very exterior from pretty much the whole thing. the meat there is what turned very dry, and dark. too dry an leathery to be what i consider edible...it's part of the (mine at least) expected loss when dry aging.

  • That looks amazing! Do you use a separate refrigerator? If not, how do you keep it from tasting like the fridge?

  • Wow! Are thee any food safety concerns when aging beef like this. Looks awesome!

    i do have a second fridge that i used so it was separate from regular fridge stuff. key is keeping it cold and not opening too often.

  • ha...i kept him from the cookies, but he (both really, we have 2) loved a few pieces of the dried beef trimmings...from a dog's point of view, that might be the best possible treat.

    You're right on this one...not sure if I can keep waiting. The small egg was a surprise, I was expecting SV.

  • I love Yorkshire Pudding, and I never get it.  No really I do.  Oh, nice beef too
    :D





    OK only kidding.  I just asked the wife if I could buy a dorm sized fridge for aging beef.

    Small egg is better. Keep the egg and sneak the SV in later. (Sooner).

  • sneaking would be easier and faster, but too much risk of upsetting my wife...what works out better for me is a persistent full court press of nagging that I want something and she eventually caves and lets me spend to get me to shut up about it.

    Perfect. Pretty much what I meant. Just start pestering and then it will happen.

  • post dessert treat...I cut the bones away and tied back on before cooking...well, after the roast was carved i threw the rib bones back on the 250 egg for a couple hours. yum! image

    the good thing is I've been pestering for a while so it should happen soon.

  • With your creativity, you'll really enjoy it. Check with NOLA and get the $500 rig he suggested. That's the way to go.

  • Great stuff.

  • Wow, I think.... WOW That is the.... WOW. Excellent..... did I say WOW

    Wonderful job. It looks like a regular roast, a very good roast, but a regular roast. I'll bet the taste was incredible.

    As everyone else has said awesome job!! I was going to try my hand at Yorkshire pudding this year but I chickened out. The SR roast cost too much and this was first time cooking it on the Egg, so I used the KISS principal for the rest of the meal this year. Your pictures have encouraged me to put Yorkshire Pudding on the menu next time for sure.

  • Thanks, MQ !  I didn't know what Yorkshire Pudding is, so I looked it up.  Turns out, it's the same as popovers but with the PR drippings at the base.  My wife had made popovers for Christmas, and we did have PR.  I wish I had used the drippings.  Next time.

  • Thanks guys...the Yorkshire Pudding was easy and a big hit in addition to the beef....what's not good about popovers cooked up in a little beef fat?

  • When I put pictures of that prime rib in the new frames my wife got for Xmas she's going to be upset. Probably not as upset as when I hang them on the wall wife the rest of the family! Great cook. Very impressed/jealous!

    ha.....that's great, thanks! although my hope was that maybe I could inspire some to try the dry aging not end up on a wall with family portraits.
