Thank you

    I agree with the Thirdeye approach - yet for the last two I've done I hot tubbed them for 45 minutes and that has made a world of difference!

    It's a type of Sous Vide more commonly called Hot Tubbing on this board. At least 1 hour before you plan to egg the meat submerge the meat sealed in a plastic bag into a container of hot water from the tap. The desired temp of the water should be checked from time to time during the hour and should be over 100 degrees. I find my tap water runs about 125 degrees. I also find that I have to change the water at least 3 to 4 times in that hour. This way your internal temp will be somewhere around 90° when it goes on the grill. The finished prime rib - if pulled off at 134° will be medium rare, but a nice pink throughout and not blue and cold.

  • It means to submerge a piece of meat in roughly 100 degree water(hence hot tubbing)in a ziploc bag(or similar) in order to bring the meat's temperature up. It can significantly reduce time on the grill and loss of moisture. The technique is most often used for steak cuts that are seared and served fairly rare. Mark
  • We always do a rib roast at Christmas.Now I know how I'm going to do it....if I can wait that long :laugh:
