    Rib roast: any smaller and it is a steak!

    And it might actually be a steak! I made a point that I wasn't going to buy any more meat until I ate what was in the freezer, but this was on sale for $14 a pound and it looks really nice, so this is dinner. It's about 2 1/2 lbs, perfect for two people.

    Haha, yeah.... I think I would be tempted to split that down the middle and have two steaks.

    I've still got a USDA prime "prime rib" (3 or 5 bone I forget which) buried in the deep freeze and keep saying I am just gonna pull it out and slice between the bones to make several fat steaks, versus treating it as a roast.

      Back in the day (like two years ago) Choice rib roasts would always go on sale for the holidays at less than nine dollars a pound. I would order a few cut from the large end and slice some for one bone steaks and save the others for roasts. One of the advantages of having a vacuum sealer.

    taters, ribs roast, and PBR what is not to like.


      Came out good.

        Yum. And I say Yum again. Perfect. Did the flavoring come out the way you liked and what did you do?

        TripleB, salted it in the morning, pepper right before cooking. 250* until it hit 127* internal. I usually use Mrs O’Leary’s Cow Crust ( https://amazingribs.com/tested-recip...-crust-recipe/ ) but this was off the cuff and I didn’t want to mix it up.

      Looks like a cowboy cut ribeye to me...

        I agree. It’s easier to please Mrs Mosca with roast though, so… we roast. Special occasion. 5 year CAT scan is clean.

        Congratulations on the CAT scan. Mine have been pretty good too. Makes one feel good.

        One day at a time.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      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.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
