Hey all,
Time for my annual update post. Hope you all have been well. Jo and I returned from China with our second adopted child, Ellie, in September, and except for a brief bout of pneumonia, she's adapting well. Everyone is excited for Christmas, and my egg is about to get another workout.[p]I'm still in Pennsylvania working at the VA Medical Center and directing one of the Primary Care programs. No time to lurk around and peruse the posts in my former stomping grounds at BGE.com! But life is good, with a great wife, 6 wonderful kids and a large green monster on the deck.[p]I picked up a 10 lb rolled prime rib yesterday (to the tune of $93! Gulp!) and a remote Polder. Unfortunately, my ceramic grate sustained several compound fractures during a recent high temp cook, and had to be discarded. I was able to find the old iron trivet that we had been touting a couple of years ago and got the egg ready without much trouble.[p]Does anyone have a reliable, "this is the God-honest best stuff I've ever tasted" recipe? Also requesting temp suggestions for a tender prime rib. If non are forthcoming, I'll go with one of the already posted recipes.[p]Congrats to my old friend, Nature Boy, for his recent competition successes![p]Good to "see" you all again, and hope to cook with you in Waldorf this spring. [p]Brad

    bdavidson,
    Well I always like mine done by slow cooking at a 250 dome till the center is 125, remove from egg and rest about15-20 minutes, during the resting I get the egg to sear temps and sear the roast. You can always adjust the sear time by seeing what cooking later than normal, so everything come out about the same time.
