last night\'s prime rib: another success!

We had a hankering for a nice prime rib meal last night and lots of it at that! So...I picked up this 2.5# 3" thick chunk. Kinda looked purdy huh?

After hot tubbing for 55 minutes I rubbed it with a favorite home made concoction, smeared with mustard and put it in the egg at 325° dome.

After 70 minutes or so it had reached 125° internal so I then did a reverse sear at 625° for just a few short minutes and got this brown nugget.

After a 5 minute rest my sharp knife revealed this nice medium rare thoroughly cooked prime rib!

Needless to say we pigged out on the beef!

    You're right sure is purdy.

    Nice cook. What kind of crust did have before the sear?

    It was a light brown and traces of the yellow mustard were still visible since at that point it had only been an indirect roast. The sear made a tasty but not hard bark.

    Great looking PR RRP. I've only done one and it was the best thing I believe I've done. I don't know why I have waited so long to do another :ermm:
  • Another great cook Ron...

    RRP, the thought of "hot tubbing" meat seems to go against all of my cooking and egging instincts. But I have to hand it to you. That is some fine looking Prime Rib.
