prime rib

edited 12:50AM in EggHead Forum
After looking at all the great recipes on prime rib and cooking with the BGE, how could I go wrong? I like leaving the bone in tact, it takes the heat. My prime rib was 4.5 pounds and it was finish in 2 hours and 20 minutes at 350 to 400 degrees. I did not use a drip pan and only open the EGG twice to check the meat. I used the BGE gauge to check the meat and it seem to be right on(145 - 150). Meduim on the outer meat and nice and pink on the inner meat. I was amazed at all the juices in the prime rib as I began to cut it. I place potatoes on the last 50 minutes. The BGE is something else.

    Master Diver,
    Interesting. Was it in a V rack over the fire with no drip pan or just bone side down on the grid? Mine had a lot of jucies in that pan when it was done, I guess yours turned out fine. I agree with you about leaving in the bone. It was really simple to cut them off anyway, one cut and they all came off (I had 3 bones on on and 2 on the other). [p]Tim

  • Tim M,Just bone side down. It was very tender with a lot of juice left. This was the first prime rib for me. I'll try a drip pan next time.

    Master Diver,
    I am not sure you need one. If it came out the way you liked it, then maybe I will try it without one. I have only done two prime ribs and one was a little under cooked (took it out too soon) and I would have like a little more searing so maybe no drip pan would work if the fat dripping wouldn't do any harm.

    Master Diver,[p]I'm so proud. Only the second time you fire up your egg, and you do a prime rib. I'm getting a little misty eyed (let me compose myself)'re boldly grillin' where other divers have yet to grill.[p]Now go get a Polder.[p]Beth (where you got egged) said she wants to have an Egg blow out here in Panama City Beach. She said she would provide the flesh, however, you and I have to hire ZZ Top to perform (would have been The Dead, but without Garcia...).[p]See you at work.[p]Kamper
