    most are probably gonna say let the meat shine.  I actually prefer oak on prime rib.  just a small chunk or like 1/2 a cup of chips.  that with some good oaked cabernet is out of this world in my book.

    @u_tarded how long do u think do u think it will take to cook a 5lb'er at 220?
  • I did a 4lb. prime rib a couple of weeks ago. I went indirect at a little higher temp - 270* or so - for a little over an hour to get to 120 IT. I took the meat off the egg, removed the plate setter and let things heat and then seared the meat on all sides for another minute or so per side. The only seasoning I used was s&p and a little garlic powder; no smoke.

    It came out great.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
