Christmas rib roast

I got the Egg stable at around 500 for about 30 minutes.


Then put in an 8 lb roast coated with salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme.


Set the vents for 350, it dropped to 325 for about an hour then settled in at 350. When the roast was almost done it crept up to 370.


Pulled it out at 125 internal and rested it under a foil tent while I made the potatoes and Yorkshire pudding with the drippings. I also made some corn with poblano and red bell peppers.


Was a pretty amazing Christmas meal. -RP

    Outstanding cook and great pictures. Love it when you guys are able to tell the "story" of the cook. I usually just take a "money shot" at the end of the cook. I'm curious..what kind of camera are you using? You're pictures always come out so clear, even as web images.

    curious on your cook time. I am doing an 8lb roast in the morning and plan on pulling at 125 as well, thinking 2-2.5 hours?? how did it work out for you and how long did you rest? (if you didnt already say that, I will re-read)..

  • Excellent cook, Randy. Are those Yorkshire pudding?

    Looks fabulous. I bet parsley and sage felt left out though.

    Love the puddings! My last try at those I wound up with flat, dense, little hockey pucks.

    Hope you guys had a great one out west.
  • I've never made Yorkshire Pudding. My son-in-law is from London. I'd like to surprise him some day. I'm curious about the drippings in that picture under the roast, in the Pyrex dish...Is that enough to make the pudding, or were there lots more drippings before or after that picture was taken?

    It took 2 hours and 15 minutes to reach 125 internal. -RP

    That was the end of the cook, I had plenty of drippings to make the puddings and roast the potatoes. The potatoes were boiled for 5 minutes then cooled. Then I scored them with a fork to give them ridges and spooned the drippings all over them. Baked at 400 for 50 minutes then salted them. Came out like fat french fries, awesomely good. -RP
  • Randy, that is one really nice looking rib roast. Happy Holidays to you and your family. John
