    Prime Rib ??

    So I'm doing a full prime rib at my firehouse. It's 14# and about 16" long.

    Curious on the cook time. I know, cook to temp. I will for sure. Trying to estimate cook time so I can (crosses fingers), have everything ready at about the same time.

    I'm keeping it simple and traditional. Menu includes the BEEF, green bean casserole (because it's so good), Meathead's garlic mashed spuds, creamed spinach (because it's required for prime rib), and of course a righteous, thin gravy.

    I usually cut big hunks in half, more sear aera. Also easier to handle. I don't have my notes for time estimates.

      From the AR free site: https://amazingribs.com/tested-recip...er-beef-roasts

      You should get a pretty good idea of the time from that in-depth article I think. It is more about how thick or round the roast is than the length.

      I just looked again at the link above and there is another link within it that is even more directly about how much time cooking takes.

        I suggest tying it to make it more rounded. A thinner section will more done than the thicker section and tying it will help.

        Do you have any idea how done people like their PR? That dictates what final temp you want. However, the ends will be more done than the center, so if some want it cooked to a higher temp, they get the ends. If you have more than two, you can cut in half or thirds to get more "doner" slices. As long as the sections are longer than they are thick, cutting shouldn't affect cooking time.

          Thanks all. I'm thinking of cutting the big beef in half and tying it up. My roasting rack is not big enough to handle this beast. But I can cut it and make it work on the smaller racks I have. Think half hotel pan size.

          I have the beast resting in the fridge with a dry brine of salt and pepper. I will coat with the MH O'Leary rub when the time is right.

          Still unanswered. How long should I expect for cook time?

            I like my meat R to MR. Should I really care about what others like? LOL They can cook it if they want!

            Again, how long should I expect for this beast?

              My experience in the past with such beef roasts is that it only takes 2 to 3 hours MAX at 225 to get meat from 34F out of the fridge where its been dry brining, to 130F. I then sear it over on the gasser if it doesn't look dark enough already from smoking. I'll serve the ends to my wife and anyone else who doesn't like medium rare, and have a skillet heated up on the stove to finish off slices for other folk who want it more done.

              The article by Meathead says 30 minutes per inch of diameter/thickness to get from 38F to 130-135, and I would say that is spot on.

              A really hot oven is also good for searing at the end - something I learned from using my sous-vide.

              Cut it down, and put some of it on an upper grate if you have two cooking levels in your kamado. Monitor temps separately though, or rotate them halfway through the cook, since a higher level may cook faster.

            I cook to 120° IT, and then let sit until room temp. Then 30 minutes before service, blast at 500° for 30 minutes to sear, then serve immediately. Doing it this way allows you a TON of flexibility with service time.

              Any concern about bacteria growth letting it sit for more than an hour (I assume) under 140º?

              never had a problem. Beef is very safe, and since there is no cuts or anything pushing surface bacteria inside the roast, the inside should remain sterile assuming you got from a reputable source. The 500° sear will kill anything on the outside. fkrall

            Letting us know what temp you plan to cook it at would be awfully helpful...some people do it at 225, some at 300. I think you'll find the cook time will change somewhat depending on where along that spectrum you decide to cook it.

                  So I found a fine mesh cooling rack. Going to tie the roast and place it on the rack then on top of the oven grate. Underneath I will put the au jus drip pan. Already made a beef stock and will "prime" the drippings with that along with more mirepoix.

                  Unfortunately, my local butcher closed up about 6 months ago. Been tough to find veal stock bones since then. Would have preferred to make a demiglace. Gives a nice velvety taste.

                  Beef stock makes your house smell like farts. Veal stock makes your house smell like home.

                  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.
