Aged Bone In Ribeye 28 Days - On Mini

Hi Everyone
I wanted to share the Friday nights dinner for the wife & me. I bought a 28 day dry aged Ribeye from our local gourmet meat market and asked for a 2 inch cut for the wife & I to share (we like to share dinners sitting next to each other). It was a bit pricey compared to regular Ribeye but Friday is our date night so it's a special treat. I used Weber Chicago style seasoning. Soaked some Alder chips. Got the Mini to 500 and cooked about 7 minutes a side. I really was just going by internal temp after flip more than the time. We pulled it off @ 127* and let it rest for 5 minutes covered before cutting into it, with sides of mashed potatoes, gravy & salad. It was a great steak! Tonight I am doing a comparison Baby Back Rib night for the wife & In-Laws. I will post that ASAP. I have 3 slabs of BB Ribs weighing in at 8.69lb's total. I am using Bone Suckin Rub & Sauce on one slab, Blues Hog w/D.P. Dust & the 3rd with my traditional Paul Prudhomme's BBQ Magic with Sweet Baby Ray's. I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend of Grillin & Chillin!!















I am Hungry all over again just looking at these photos. Gotta get started on those ribs!

    Beautiful dinner. I love dry aged beef, unfortunately I don't get the chance to eat it often enough.

    then why not dry age some yourself? I aged these 45 days and this rib eye sub-primal was less than $7 a pound.

    that is an awesome looking ribeye. Fantastic, very nice! FYI, i don't think 15.99 was a bad price at all. I think our local butcher carries aged ribeye for either 20 or 25 per lb, can't remember. Most of our grocery stores ribeye is 12 or so a pound. Anyways, looks really damn good. thanks for sharing.

    What a great looking steak! As highpress said, I don't think that is a bad price either. Think what you would have paid in a steakhouse for that bad boy! I have got to get a mini, on the wish list.

    That steak looks perfect. Like you I have taken out the tape measure before the cook. ;) I never did this before the egg. :laugh:
