Rib Roast/Prime Rib

Post by mp4 » May 26th, 2019, 7:47 am

I'm going to give rib roast a shot this weekend. My little one is 9 lbs and its practice because I plan to smoke some for my sons wedding rehearsal dinner.

What's the general consensus on temp and time/lb.?

I do standing rib roasts in my smokers on a fairly regular basis. Use your favorite rub, I smoke mine up to 125-130 F for a nice medium rare. A 3 bone roast took about 3-3.5 hours last time, IIRC. Like brisket, long, low and slow, I run 225-250 F.

Well...here's my first rib roast.

I cold cured it overnight (thats my first time doing that as well), then seasoned it up with Dink's Udder Madness and tossed it in Cam at 225° at 7:30 this morning.

It's a 3 bone, 9 lb. roast that's been in for just under 2 hours. Internal meat temp started at 42° and is now at 71°. I'm planning to reverse sear it and have it ready serve it up at 1:00. Most of my clan are medium to medium well so I'm shooting for just barely medium and will beg for forgiveness. ImageImageImageImage

What is this “cold cure” you talk of?

Just cover it up with coarse salt and leave it for a while. I've heard as little as an hour and as much as overnight. It turned out pretty darn good. ImageImage

I salt mine too but have always referred to it as a dry brine.

Thanks for explaining.

Looks tasty.

I may have misquoted what I was doing...1st time trying that particular process.
