          NPJ77, Welcome from Wyoming. Where in Wales are you? I had eight aunts and uncles. Five were born and lived in Tradegar before the family emigrated to the town where I live now. My dad was born here. I'm proud to say that half of me is Welsh.

              Welcome to the Pit from Huntsville, Alabama! My father's family came across the pond from Wales in the early 1600's, and my mother's family from England around the same time - both coming to Virginia. So, been a while since any of us hailed from Wales!

              Look forward to seeing what you are cooking over there, and getting to know you.

                          Born in Pontypool, now living in Cardiff. Not far from Tredegar, but everywhere is pretty close in Wales :-)

                            I know what you mean. Everywhere in Wyoming is pretty close too but in a different way. One of our governors once said, "Wyoming is a small town with long streets."

                            Can’t say I’ve ever been to Pontypool or Tredegar... Though I have heard of Pontypool...but embarrassingly cannot recall why. O_o It will come to me...or not. LOL

                            I’ve been to Cardiff & Swansea, but that’s about the extent of my South Wales adventures. LOL
                            But again, welcome aboard and we look forward to sharing this bbq/grilling/cooking experience with you.

                          Wasn't soooo bad I guess. Followed a Traeger recipe, so was a Dijon Mustard layer with Herbs De Provence. Cooked it at 325 for about 3.5 hours. Didn't really take too much notice if the time, but pulled it out when internal temp hit 120 as I expected it to cook a little more during an hours rest.

                          Ultimately was very tough to carve and very chewy. Lots of fat and gristle that was just a nightmare to carve around and was just a lot of hassle to eat. The pieces of meat when you did get a good piece were super moist and tender though.

                          My thinking is that it was a little under cooked? Was looking for medium rare, so maybe should have let it get to 125/130? Oy maybe it was just a crappy piece of meat?

                          Would love to have everyones thoughts.

                            I’m with wu7y in that overall it looks really good...but can see some problem areas.
                            Luck of the draw on that day perhaps... That’s one of those times where I would give the vendor one more shot...and then move on if it failed again because the problem does not appear to be the way it was cooked.

                            Just curious but, what grade was it? And is a higher grade available that won’t cost a car payment?

                            Unfortunately surfdog, the UK has a classification system but its nowhere near as clear as the USDA one. And worse, the shops and butchers generally don't tell you anyway!

                            I paid around $75 for this cut from a local butcher, which seemed reasonable. Seems like I'll just have to give it another try!

                            NPJ77 I never cared much for the UK grading system, especially as I was so used to the USDA by the time I ever purchased meat there.

                            The USDA is simpler, but not perfect either...for one, it’s voluntary. And if lacking a USDA shield/logo...it can be whatever the store wants to sell. And sometimes they play games...like calling it “Choice Select.” LOL Second, as it’s graded long before it’s cut into steaks, it’s possible to get it at the extremes and be VERY close to the grade above/below.

                          I can't tell if the butcher left on some lifter meat, or if this is just a different breed of cattle, but there's something funny about that cross section in your photo.

                          Edit: Upon a second look, it's definitely lifter meat, defined as a cut which sits on top of the prime rib and has layers of meat along with fat and connective tissue. Let me upload a pic and you can give me your opinion. Lifter meat would sit on top of the prime rib where I drew the blue lines.This picture does not have lifter meat.

                            sdom1 - thanks for taking the time to look at that. Interestingly I think there might well have been that layer, I went back through some pics and found the best I could. Of course I’m still so excited by everything I smoke that everything gets photographed at every stage!

                            Butcher actually asked me how it was and I discussed that I was a little disappointed. Result was that he’s offered me my next one 50% off the price!

                            prime rib isn’t really a thing in the UK so I’ll take your image with me and talk to him about it.

                              Now THAT is proper customer service.
                              Sounds a vendor that wants to cultivate long term customers.

                              I always thought the UK invented prime rib. The US gets roast beef from you for sure. But yeah, it may have been that the eye was a bit small and he wanted to round out the roast? I know Berkshire pork chops often have the equivalent of that lifter meat on it for that reason.

                              Anyway, nice to see the butcher taking care of you. That's a man who knows how to play the long game.

                              Also, even if you get the same cut the next time, you may be able to trim that lifter meat and cook it as its own cut. I can't remember what that cut is called, but it's pretty good.

                          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                          Placeholder

                          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                          Placeholder

                          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
