    Prime rib sounds pretty good... Think the wife is gonna have me busy tonight with Halloween, but I've got some good leftovers until I decide what to do next! 👍😄

    Nice! You're ready for a prime rib now!

    Just cooked the roast! Thx for the advice Huskee, it wasn't quite as tender as a prime rib might be but it was dang good and for the cut the texture was very good. I thought the flavor was much better though, and my wife ate more red meat than I've seen her do in a long time! Had a little snafu with the temps, came out a little bloody after I seared it, so I fixed my sear on one side and brought it to a little over 140 degrees in the smoker, came out amazing!

    Thedcorvette You could do the above, just take the roast to 135 (medium rare) reverse sear style, and slice thin. I've done that with leaner roasts and it's yummy. That's also common with cuts like tri-tips and prime ribs, etc.

    Hmm, mine might be a little lean, didn't have much of a fat cap, but worth a try. Thanks for the info, the more I read about this dry-brining idea the better it sounds, seems like a lot less effort than traditional brining. Do you mean searing the roast by faux cambro? Sorry the terminology of this is still new.

    Edit: just scrolled through the beef grade page.. may have to re-evaluate this plan and make a stew if it's anything less than choice. Also, looked up faux cambro, no need to explain!

    Excellent! It needs to be a fatty marbled roast like chuck. Won't work too well on lean roasts like a round roast for instance. If you don't have the supplies where you're at to make BBBR, then 50/50 coarse pepper & salt (Dalmatian rub) will work too. I wouldn't recommend a sweet pork rub.

    Do it the same as you'd do a pork butt- remove all exterior fat cap. Dry brine a couple hours or a couple days (if you dry brine, then omit the salt later if using Dalmatian rub). Smoke at 210-250, take up a little higher than you might take pork, so let's say 205-209 IT for instance. Hold it at that temp if you can for an hour. Then faux Cambro it as you would a pork butt. Beef chuck tends to do well at a little higher temp than butts.

    Good job on the ribs! Can't go wrong with ribs!

    Once you do a pork butt and get it down, then you may wish to try a beef chuck roast in the exact manner except with Meathead's Big Bad Beef Rub (BBBR). Pulled beef is scrumptious, and personally I much prefer it to pulled pork.

    Keep up the good work!

    @Thecorvette, Try Butt when you are ready upstairs! 👍 Use your favorite rub 12-48 hrs in the fridge, rub with cookin oil just before putting in the smoker! Temp at 225*-250* F. Until done, with good thermometers and PATIENCE You Can't Go Wrong! 👍👌🍀👌👍. Good Luck, Dan

    Great job on the ribs!

    For a long time I feared pork butt. However, pork butts are probably the easiest and foolproofest thing you can barbeque. Ribs are much more likely to go sideways on you. Pork butt just comes out all nice and pull-y, every time.

    Thedcorvette ...

    Where there's a will, there is a way! When you get your new cooker let the Pit know exactly what it is. There will more than likely be some Pit members that have used it or are using it now. We will help you breeze through the learning curve of that device swiftly.👍

    We're here to help! Stay safe my friend.👌

    Pork butt does sound pretty dang amazing, I'm between something like that and a chicken for this weekend's cook.

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


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.
