View Full Version : My First Prime Rib

12-29-2012, 10:04 PM
Got a Masterbuilt 40 for Christmas and broke it in with my first prime rib. Overall I thought it went well (no complaints at dinner) but am strongly considering the AMNPS to add-on for more consistent smoke.

Other posts on the board were really helpful on preparing and cooking the roast. Also had great responses to an earlier thread asking about au jus. Thanks!

Looks great. What are the sides?

Great looking cook, the meat and the sides look great!

Meat came out a treat!
I would have used another vege tray, that one is way overloaded...unless you were planning on mash?
I'd love a slice of that :clap:

Looks good to me!

Nice cook. That first pic did have me wondering if there was a new zero gravity cooker though. :-P

That looks to die for to me.What is this AMNPS you speak of?

I certainly wouldn't complain if you served that to me. Nice job!

Do you do anything with the tray of veggies that you had under the beef? Or are they just used to add flavor while the meat is cooking?

Very nicely done!

Thanks everyone. The veggies smoked for the first hour or so to be used in the au jus. I could have done with about 1/2 of what I used.

The sides were stuffed backed potatoes, carrot souffle, and creamed spinach. My wife did a great job and the souffle was our first time trying.

I have that same smoker. I think it works well and is very convenient and easy to use.
I still get a chuckle out of the window and interior light.

BTW that is a really good looking PR and sides look great as well.
