    I've been known to order a ribeye, eat the cap and leave the rest.

    Yes, but to get enough to feed my family a bunch of cap steaks, I'd have to buy a big prime rib! And to be honest, when I do have prime rib, I love the cap, and would miss it.

    You can cut the cap off yourself its pretty easy actually. It's well marked by the fat between the pieces of meat.

    I don't remember exactly what recipe I read it in but Meathead said sometimes when he entertains friends he cuts the cap off and saves it for a later cook. He also said its the best steak there is on the whole cow.

    A while ago, I went to a butcher looking for this cut. The butcher knew what I was talking about, but said they don't remove the cap from prime ribs. But he said that if I bought the whole prime rib, they could cut the cap for me, and dry age the remaining ribeye/prime rib on site, to be pulled as needed. Sounded like a great idea... when I asked how much that would cost, he said "about $500-700, depending on the cut." Ok, so maybe not.

    I read somewhere Meathead saying that he cuts the cap off and cooks it separately. He too said its an exceptional steak.

    When I talked to a butcher about it, he said it doesn't make good financial sense for them to pull the cap off of a prime rib, as they can't sell the remaining prime rib in the manner most customers expect. Which is a big money cut. That said, in reading @Huskee's comment, I think we need to spread the word about the ribeye filet... get that cut popular, and we have more of both!

    I've made the same from Costco. Wow is it amazing. Such a wonderful beefy flavor. I don't get why you don't see them more often.

    Excellent! I occasionally shop online at Snake River Farms for some higher end beef for special occasions. They sell ribeye cap and I have been meaning to try it (when there's a sale). On that note, they also sell ribeye filet steaks, what's left after the ribeye caps are removed. They are thick and look like a filet minion, but are worlds better. If you can ever get your hands on ribeye filet steaks, they're well worth a try.

    Ribeye cap

    I have wanted to cook this cut for a long time, but it is hard to find, as most places are unwilling to remove the cap from ribeye or prime rib. So when my wife found it at Costco, we jumped on it. I cooked this on my gasser, indirect until about 125 IT, at which point I finished it on the hot side. I used the MH Cow Crust that I would use on prime rib. Oh. My. God. This was the best steak I have ever had, by miles.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

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.
