Going to do a prime rib. We had prime rib for Christmas which I did in the oven. Did it at 250 on surround roast then a sear on the egg since it was hot already. They were beautifully browned already so I'm not sure I needed the sear, but did it anyway. I did a prime on the egg in the past and it took on what i felt to be an unpleasant smoke flavor. I did it at 250-275 and dd not use much wood. Did I do something wrong or does a prime pick up lots of smoke flavor easily? Maybe I didn't let the fire go long enough before starting my cook, or maybe a prime in the egg is just not for me. I have been afraid to try again because I hate to ruin a beautiful piece of beef that I know will come out great from my overpriced but very nice Miele oven.
