    It looks nasty, but it looks normal after you trim it. And it really drives up the flavor.

    I trimmed the leathery surface last night, then rubbed a coating of olive oil, salt and rosemary over the surface. Then wrapped it in plastic wrap.

    I haven't cooked prime rib in the smoker before. What wood do you use? Do you cook it the whole time in the Smoker?

    We've got a 14 lb'er in the oven (Mrs. PAC will do a reverse sear) and we'll have 6 lbs of salmon on the smoker soon.

    I have had great luck doing that. I sear it in my oven for 20-25 minutes and then I finish it in my smoker. Tastes fabulous.

    Wow. That was amazing. Great meal.

    We did prime rib, homemade horseradish (hat tip to Alton Bown), various veggies, and au gratin potatoes. We copied this recipe, and the potatoes were unreal. http://www.onceuponachef.com/2014/12...au-gratin.html

    Best part? Still have 3-4 lbs of prime rib leftovers Christmas morning steak and eggs.

    Sear in a pan, then smoke at 275 until inside is 130, FTC for about and hour. I forgot a picture but all 10 lbs are gone so it was mostly a success.

    We've done it ever Xmas eve since I got a smoker.

    No prime rib for me this year. I will be braising short ribs for the masses tomorrow.

    I just sliced a 16.79 lbs. USDA Prime New York Strip into 21 steaks. When I was done, I had a good 6-7 ozs of tidbits left over. Kosher salt, ground black pepper, and granulated garlic for five minutes before throwing them into an ungreased cast-iron skillet that was smoking hot. They are fork tender and taste like I cooked them in butter. In about an hour, I'm going to be cooking steaks to order. This is some of the best steak I've ever eaten.

    None for us either. Unexpected death in the family altered many of our holiday plans. We did lamb chops tonight which were very good.

    I got a rib roast at the store for cheap because the butcher got a little crazy with the saw. Here is a bird's-eye view of the roast while it is standing on its end; the cut is visible. Great marbling, though.

    It was great. I also threw a loin strip roast on that was also on sale. I didn't take the time to tie it round, but it still came out OK.

    Cooking PRib for 50+ on the 2nd. Should be fun. I'll probably use the same method I used last time. It ended up pretty good.

    That's about right for a bone-in product. Most people keep it on the bone for flavor and juiciness. Same with the fat cap. I assume you took it off to get more smoke?

    For people looking for a good holiday roast, you'll get a better deal on pretty much anything than prime rib this time of year, though DT got a rockin deal at $9.30. The best prime rib alternative is the strip loin. An underdog cut is the Denver. It's thin like a brisket, but it is very tender, and can be grilled medium rare like the Tri-Tip. You'd probably have to go to a specialty meat shop for it, but it comes of the chuck roll and is very affordable. Last year I talked a friend of mine into going with a brisket for his company party because I knew he had a tight budget. He said his employees liked it just as much as prime rib. The short story is that everyone thinks they need to serve prime rib at company parties, so now is the time to get good deals, comparatively, on other cuts that are also very high quality.

    Crock pot brisket at ward Christmas party.

    I feel like I shouldn't complain, because strictly speaking, we got brisket. And yet, it feels like we went out of our way to assemble all of the components of a really solid dinner and deliberately decided not to follow through. Just, why?

    I was told that Costco had prime brisket for $1.99 a pound right now. Anyone else see that? While prime rib is awesome, hard beat that brisket price for a big party. Although DT is making me question that.

    How long do they keep? Is it best to buy one now, or wait a few days?

    At least 10 days in the fridge. Boneless beef will keep for 45-60 days from slaughter, and most beef hits the grocery store within 10 days of slaughter.
