    Prime rib costs HOW much?!

    I literally just fell over.

    Okay, I've eaten prime rib before....even had some people cook it for me before, but I never knew how much it really cost. So I'm curious about it and just watched three or so videos on doing prime rib in a smoker or grill and every one of them stressed, strangely to me at the time, that it is an expensive cut of meat.

    So I go to my local grocery store's web site and search for "prime rib."

    I mean there is expensive, and there is expensive. Wow. I had no idea. I may try to master brisket before I tackle prime rib.

    I can catch it on sale for about $10-$12 a lb occasionally. That's really not THAT bad on prime rib roast. HEB prime is by far the least expensive in all cuts I have ever found without a sale. I have one in the freezer dry brine waiting for Christmas.

      In today's parlance, "prime rib" generally refers to any standing rib roast of beef, no matter the USDA grade. Much of what is sold at retail as "prime rib" is Choice grade and is less expensive. I believe last Christmas it was available here in my supermarket for $5.99/lb for regular choice and $7.99/lb for CAB, if you had a store card. I made it for Christmas dinner and it was excellent.

        Similar to "baby" back ribs.

        Many states require the labels on beef to conform to IMPS standards. For instance, you can't say prime rib. Many place don't. Hence, you could sell a standing rib from USDA utility grade and label it prime rib.

        Prime rib is a walk in the park compared to cooking a good brisket.

          That was actually my thinking after watching the videos. It looks like such a simple cook. Then I saw the price.

        You can get a 3 or 4 bone Prime Prime Rib which weighs 5-6 lbs. from a good butcher. You can also get premium grade Black Angus which is just is just is slightly less than prime for about 3/4 the price. Had a delicious one from Wal-Mart.

          Today at Costco- Prime rib-eye roast was $13 a pound - boneless. I paid $200 for one, made a Prime Rib out of one end and ended up with six 2 inch rib eye steaks for the future. The Choice was $9 a pound. If it wasn’t Christmas I would have gone with Choice. 15lbs of Prime at your price is actually pretty good. 15 pounds is much more than your advertisement photo shows. When shopping look at the back and feel the fat. If it seems excessive, move on to the next pack. When shopping for meat, I know I will trim. But at Prime pricing, I expect that excess weight is not contributing to my cost. Bones and fat cost money.

            I paid $10.99/lb today for choice at Costco and trimmed a little more than a lb of fat off.

              That’s a 15lb roast, are you serving 20 people? If so, I’ll suggest two smaller roasts. With that many people, you’re going to have the medium rare folks and the medium well folks. Two roasts is the best way to accommodate everyone.

              Closer to the 25th the price comes down. Look for it to be under $10/lb by next Sunday.

                Okay, now that I've looked a bit closer....a 15 lb 7-bone roast is a mammoth roast. I definitely don't need that much. Half that as Mosca suggested would be fine.

                There's a butcher in my town that is getting really popular, in fact, they just moved to a larger location that is closer to my house. I may check him out and see what he has.

                The prime rib cook just looks so simple: trim fat, remove bones, dry brine, add rub, smoke till 120 degrees, do a quick sear on all sides and you're done.

                  It is simple. The only rule is to really keep it low and slow. Like, 250* and under.

                  It’s just my preference, but this is one that is better without smoke. You’re okay cooking over charcoal, but the meat itself is very tender, and does not benefit from smoke.

                  My favorite is salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder, just enough to give a hint. Second favorite is Cow Crust.

                  I’ve done near 100 of these. Once you get it, the cost doesn’t scare you. The most I’ve spent is close to $500.

                  Why do you remove the bone? I like cooking it boned in. Then (at least) 1 of the booked is my special "chef's treat."

                  Dewesq55 removing the bone reduces cook time and promotes more even heat distribution. I remove the bones and cook them on the side.

                  I was at Costco this evening and prime grade bone in rib roasts were $14 per pound or something around there.

                  There is a local butcher here in town that sells choice rib roasts for $6.99 a pound. Probably going to pick up a 3 or 4 bone roast tomorrow. They also have beef tenderloin for $5 per pound. Might grab one or two of those while I am there.

                      At the local SmartFoods (formerly Cash & Carry) I can get the whole boneless primal ribeye for $10.45 (Angus 18lb. avg.) or IBP boneless beef ribeye for $7.38 (15lb. avg.).

                        I have bought pork butts, ribs, and bellies from there before but have never done any beef. Some of stuff is select grade and for most of the other choice stuff it seems like Costco is just slightly cheaper. And of course depending on the cut Sonnenbergs blows them both out of the water.

                      That's not a bad price for USDA Prime Standing Rib.

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

                      the good one grill
                      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.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      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 Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      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.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      kareubequ bbq 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.

                      masterbuilt gas smoker
                      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'.
