Running a little late due to the evening game, but I had to get this post up!
New England Patriots at 6-1
I have no idea who switched football teams with the New England Patriots of the last year and a half, but this team is winning games by doing all kinds of things! Another impressive wins versus a Vikings team that played their best game of the season is almost unreal. Great job guys!
Prime Rib Sunday
I have had a stomach bug since we returned from vacation and I have had no appetite at all. After having maybe one sandwich on Saturday and a full 7 hour yard work tour I felt I needed something to get me hungry. What about a prime rib? why not indeed?
The butcher at the supermarket cut me a fresh 5 pounder and it looked very nice:
No special treatment for something like this, just salt, pepper, and some rosemary to coat. Brush on some olive oil and you are good to go.
I set up the Big Steel Keg for indirect heat. I added some potatoes on the top grate as a side, but who cares about the side, it's PRIME RIB! Here it is after an hour at 350 degrees:
I lowered the temp down to 300 after the first hour and cooked at 300 for another 2 hours. When the internal temp right in the middle was measured at 125 degrees I pulled the roast and placed in a pan with tight foil wrapping for 30 minutes. This allows the meat to continue to cook to a target of 135 degrees or so. The ends will be medium while the middle will be medium rare. I like medium rare, but the ladies of the house like solid medium. If you do this right you can have some for every taste. Here is the roast after the foil step:
Here is about the third slice in:
Ready to eat!
I had a thick slice from the middle and it was really great. Just what I needed to get back to feeling a bit better. Prime rib sandwiches for lunch? Indeed.
Have a good night.
