Prime Rib ala ProQ

Post  Uncle Jack on Tue Jan 22, 2008 8:17 am

Did ya miss me guys? I been so up to my eyeballs in alligators I forgot to drain the swamp. Anyway, here's Prime Rib ala ProQ. I started out with a 4# chunk of prime cut by my local butcher shop:

First thing is to makle sure that the bone gets cut completely away from the meat and add a few cloves of garlic. I used elephant garlic this time around, but it turned out a little too mild for my taste, so I would recommend the regular stuff if you are a garlic lover.

Cut your garlic into slivers to fit your taste and make a series of 1/2 inch deep slits with the point of a sharp knife every 2 inches all over the roast. Insert a slice of garlic, or a whole clove if you really love the stuff in every other slit. I put a leaf of fresh rosemary in the rest, but it's up to you.

Prepare your rub or use a store bought one, there are lots of nice prime rib & roast seasonings out there. As far as store bought goes I like the either McCormick's or Carl's Gourmet out of San Francisco. Here is the recipe for the rub that I used this time:

1 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp dried rosemary
1 Tbsp coarse sea salt
1 Tbsp paprika
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Rub it all over the meat:

Put the roast back on the bones and re-tie together:

I prefer to let my roast rest in the seasonings in the fridge over night. When you get ready to cook take it out and let it move up toward room temp as you get your fuel and cooker ready. I soaked a double hand full of Smokinlicious red oak in apple juice as my coals got hot. Once the cooker was up to temp, 225-230 degrees, it was time to put the meat to the heat and add the smoke:

You can figgure between 12 and 15 minutes per pound of meat with the cooker running at 225 to 230 degrees. I prefer my prime rib rare so I let it cook until the internal temp reached 115 degrees, cook time was 2 hours flat. If you like your meat a little more well done, let the temp reach 125 before you pull it off. But PLEASE don't let this fine cut of beef get over cooked. If you like your beef well done, buy a piece of chuck roast.

With the meat on a plate cover it with foil for 15 to 25 minutes before cutting,

and serving:

Sorry, I didn't take any photos of the rest of the meal on the table so you will just have to imagine a nice chunk of this wonderful dead beef shareing the plate with a couple of Roxy's twice baked taters, asparagus, home baked dinner rolls and a nice glass of merlot . . . or was that 2 glasses? I forget.

Sweet smoke to all ya'll, U.J.
