Newbie Ribeye Roast Results

Hi everyone and thanks for all the help on this. As some may know, my egg was delivered on Monday. I cooked a couple pieces of Salmon and practiced with the temp control on Tue and Wed. On Thursday, for New Years, I cooked a Ribeye Roast. Here is what I did:

1) Bought 14 lb Prime Ribeye (boneless) Roast
2) Brushed with Balsamic Vinegar
3) Herb crusted with rosemary, thyme, garlic, and olive oil
4) Roasted it on indirect heat @ 250 until internal temp was 120
5) Let rest for 30 min in tinted foil
6) Put in oven at 500 degrees for 8 – 10 min
7) Sliced and served.

Ok, here is the good news, the roast was awesome. As you can see from the pics, from edge to edge, it was done evenly and not over cooked anywhere. It sliced great and tasted great. I was happy with the performance of the egg and it was easy to keep the temp once I got it going (there is a funny story in there for another thread) and with my remote temp gadget, I did not have to keep running out and checking the egg.

While everything was perfect, I am not sure I got anything by using the egg over my convection oven. I am not complaining mind you. I just do not know if it tasted any different. If I had it to do all over again, I would still use the egg. It was easy and I had the oven available for other parts of the meal.

Enjoy the pics and thanks soooo much for all the help I got on here.

  • looks great
  • Nice job....

    Interesting that you don't think there was any difference from your stove... It SHOULD have had a significant better smoked aroma and flvor....

    Nice images...
  • Thanks for the reply. I am not sure what I was expecting, but to my pallet, it really did not taste any different than my oven. I wonder if it is the lump I am using. In one way, i am very happy that it did not change the taste. I bought a high quality "Prime" cut of Ribeye and it tasted AWESOME and everyone loved it as it was!
