Best Prime Rib I Ever Ate!!

With help and encouragement from Stike, davehemp, Little Steven, thirdeye, Big Polish and RU Eggsperienced, I put 10 lbs. of the most gorgeous rib roast on the BGE for the first time today. 250* for 4 hours, pulled it at 140*, foiled it, wrapped it and rested it for 30 minutes before slicing. Absolutely the best rib roast I have ever tasted in my life. I keep turning out weekly masterpieces that I can't believe I grilled. And I'm no master griller or chef. As a matter of fact, I'm a Klutz!! Only goes to prove that even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while. But, it's gettin' to be routine for me!! My family thinks I am "gifted!!" (Or, maybe they just think I'm an Egghead!!) Thanks, guys. Appreciate the help.

I love my Egg!!

  • Thanks 2fat.......I tried to get hooked up on photobucket I have so many pictures to post it ain't even funny. But, I'm not real computer savy and I'm having trouble doing it with no one to help. Sooner or later, I'll learn the trick........In the mean time, bear with me. I sure do enjoy spending time with all of you in the forum.......and I absolutely love my Egg!!
  • Thanks, Hoss. It came out a beautiful medium rare, and I have never had one come out so completely consistent internally as this one.....I mean, crispy outside, medium rare from edge to gray......melted in your mouth.......and the flavor the charcoal was just enough to enhance it to perfection. Nothing but EVOO rubbed on with some sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. It was Killer, Hoss.

    :laugh: You'll get there. It takes time I know. I kinda like watching you and reading and all. I know your having a great time and eating food you cooked and seeing your family and friends eyes light up when they eat some food you cooked and... :P :) :woohoo:
  • Hey Steven, I would never have been able to do it so well if not from the help and encouragement from you guys. Most of what I learned about grilling, I learned on this site from you guys. So, I can't keep any of my succes a secret. Plus, I'm too damn proud of it not to boast a bit!!
  • I got news for you.......I am the most surprised of the whole group!! Can't believe I'm grilling stuff that tastes like this!! Gotta be the Egg. I've been doin this all my life on every kind'a grill you can imagine. But, I've never had success like this.....hell, I'd rather stay home and grill than eat out anytime!!

    Man that is a good feeling when you cook a prime rib so good that just makes eyes roll back in the head... :) Hard feeling to beat...
    All the talk of La. has me thinking about my favorite bbq shrimp po-boya at Liuzza's By The Track in New Orleans...
  • And Dave, it's a great shrimp season, too. My wife boiled up a bunch Friday night and they were outstanding.
  • Did the same cook at my son's house yesterday (no pics) except I pulled it at 118 and foiled for 20 minutes while I finished making the garlic creamed potatoes and cedar planked spinach with gargonzola cheese.

  • Good lookin' eats, Frank. Yall gettin any decent looking mud bugs over there?
  • Bugs are good - little pricey but that is to be expected with the current gas prices.
  • Hi Jack,

    Great to hear. That is absolutely my favorite cook.. Wish I could afford it more often!!

  • SmokeyPittSmokeyPitt Posts: 9,860
    Congrats, Jack! Also one of my favorite cooks. I just checked out your previous post and all the pics from the eggsperts are making my mouth water! Reminds me of the holiday was torture around here!

    I think my next rib roast is gonna be low n slow.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    second best you ever ate, you mean. next thing you'll try is dry aging it, and THAT will be the best one you ever had ;)

    glad you enjoyed it. it is an easy cook, and you are never in danger of burning the fat cap when searing, and there's no less crust. in fact, an aged one will have a great texture and crust from the aging. mmm mmm

    Just remember -- if there are not pictures it didn't happen! You only get a couple of grace periods....

  • Ain't exactly a cheap cook, is it Jerry!!
  • I'll never do it any differently than I did it Sunday. I could eat one right now!!
  • absolutely gorgeous!!
  • Bob.....there are are talking to computer klutz here. I have tried the photo bucket thing more times than I can count and I can't get to first base with it. I have thousands of photos saved on my shutterfly account, but I was told you had to use photobucket to upload .......and I can't get photobucket to work for me.. So, when the timing is right, I'm gonna ask one of those younger whipper snappers to teach this old geezer how to upload photos to this site and yall won't doubt me ever again. Hell, I'm liable to put a picture of myself on this site comin' out'a the shower and scare yall to death!! Careful what you wish for!! You might get something more compromising thatn a rib roast, fellas!!
