About 5 pounds. Made a paste of garlic, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, beef base, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Going on indirect at 250 until 120 then will sear.

More pics to come!

    Looks awesome.  My wife bought one of those today, but she had the butcher cut it into steaks.  I plan on doing a reverse sear on the steaks tomorrow night.

  • Cut and plated. Delicious. Made a sauce with the drippings, red wine and beef broth. Photos make it look more rare than it really was.

  • Looks very nice, congrats on a great cook, enjoy. 

    For the past couple of years, I've had the butcher take the bones off, tie the roast into a more circular shape, makes for a very even cook and the bones make wonderful au jus.

    Great looking. My wife would disagree but that is why she gets hamburger instead of prime rib. :)

  • @skiddymarker - the bones also make a wonderful snack for the cook! @4runner - your wife is nuts...hamburger over prime rib...really??? @socal_griller - about 90 seconds per side

    I will say, I love a good Tri-Tip. What I have done, is get the egg to about 300, reverse sear to 115, then pull your Tri Tip and cover with foil. Open the vent on the egg, get egg temp to 700 or so and put your Tips back on to sear. This will only take about 90 seconds a side at this point. When internal temp on your Tip measures 125 or 130, pull off your Tip and let rest for 5 minutes. It should be a perfect medium to medium rare.

  • That looks great to me.  Not too underdone at all, for me.

    Rib roasts during the holidays are always our favorite because I'll splurge for prime beef whereas during the summer I'd just get a choice rib roast.
