First Prime Rib Cook (Pic Heavy)

I cooked my first Prime Rib ever today in the LBGE.  The roast was a 4.5 lb choice bone in standing rib roast.  First, I made a paste out of salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, garlic and onion powder to use as a rub.  Next, I got the BGE to a steady 250 indirect without using any wood for smoke (I didn't want to use too much and ruin the flavor).  I also put in a drip pan with three cups of beef stock, a sprig of rosemary and a couple cloves of garlic.  I let the roast cook for about two hours, until the IT read about 120 degrees.  Then I cranked up the BGE to about 550 degrees and took the plate setter out to do a reverse sear on each side for about a minute.  The IT ended up being about 129-130 after resting for 20 minutes or so. 

While the roast was cooking, I prepared twice baked potatoes and green beans with garlic, onion and bell peppers all cooked in bacon fat.  After the roast finished and was resting, I strained the drippings from the drip pan and made an au jus with onions and mushrooms.  I carved the bone off of the meat and served sliced with the au jus and horseradish cream sauce and a bigggggg cold glass of Milo's sweet tea.  Too good.  Couldn't have turned out better!!  Thanks for all of your ideas!  As you can see, my dog even tried to get in on the action.....

    Nice job, looks great. I think cooking a rib roast with the ribs on is the only way to go. I hope that chocolate lab ended up withthe bones.

  • @td66snrf I agree.. It was absolutely delicious.  Haha that's my weimaraner.  He was going crazy the whole time.  He actually got his paws on the first paste rub I made.  Went to check the egg temp and came back to him licking the bowl clean.  And he did get both ribs

    Looks Great! hard to beat a twice baked potato from the egg imo. Have you tried the smoked gouda recipe from BGE cookbook yet?
    ·
  • Thanks everyone!!!

    @r270ba I used a combination of garlic, onion powder, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper then poured some olive oil in the rub to make a paste then spread it over the prime rib.  Tasted really good. Next time, I will use more herbs and less salt though. 

    @hapster I cannot wait to cook this again!

    @Brownie No, I haven't tried that.. Is it a cold smoke? I am nervous about that, I'll find a way to screw it up haha

  • @calracefan Haha man that was part of a present my girlfriend gave me for my birthday.  She gave me a bucket that had wooden skewers stuck down in the bucket and each skewer had cigars and mini liquor bottles attached to it.  It was the ultimate "Man Gift" and probably the best gift I've ever received.  This is the same girl that gave me the LBGE for Christmas!
