A 10# standing rib roast. It turned out great. Most of my folks like a good med/rare. I pulled it at 135* and let it rest for 30 minutes. I know that sounds a little overdone for most folks, but my folks liked it.

i have no issues with a med/rare but i think we are in the minority.:mrgreen:

we made 3 racks of ribs, smoked meatloaf and our first smoked SPAM.

6# boneless RibRoast. rubbed with olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, crushed garlic, rosemary snipped from the bush next to the grill. Reverse sear, pulled at 125. got a little rushed at the end and started searing too early, made the rib ends a little over.

Christmas here is usually my wife's chicken noodle soup (multi day effort and just sandwiches. Did a turkey in the big easy to use for hot sandwiches to go with the soup.

As an aside, will probably give the cooker away to a friend as I don't cook a lot of turkeys and my wife gets grumpy when I take over Thanksgiving

Mine was a bit unconventional!

Grilled burgers, sausage, and some bacon-wrapped chicken tenders. Here's my plate.

For the piece de resistance (that's fancy Phrench!), I made a chocolate icebox pie from scratch, using my grandmother's recipe. Ooh, it came out real good!

got a little rushed at the end and started searing too early,It's one of those things, panic of a sort sets in. STICK to your game plan. It's hard to do.
I was walking a friend through a rib roast, folks to be seated at 5 pm or so.
We had gone over and over the plan. She was nervous.
Her - Noon -"I'm putting in the roast" me "NO 1:30. Patience."
Her -"3:30 and no read on the thermometer"
Me: "Scares, you doesn't it?" She goes "Yes." Have some eggnog.
Then of course it all worked out, the temp comes from out of nowhere and gets to 120 in the next 45 minutes.
Let experience be your guide as much as possible, "It's done when its done"
is how you answer your guests. To serve poorly prepared food is worse than late food.
I don't see any poorly prepared foods in this thread.

Semi-overdone brisket... completely my fault.
I had settled in for what should have been a nice 8-10 hour smoke, maybe more, but something kept nagging at me. Smoker was holding at 250 degrees just fine, but still had this nagging thought that something was wrong. So at the 6 hour mark I opened it and realized, I had bought a pre-trimmed brisket.
So a little crispy around the edges and a tad over done on the underside.

Two years since I last tried smoking anything, and this is my first UDS, so this was my first attempt at anything... should've done a pork-butt, as they are a lot more forgiving, but hey, it all got ate (the dogs loved the burnt crunchy stuff).

I'll get it dialed in.

Just two of us so we don't go overboard.

Christmas breakfast is ham & hops. Hops bread comes from my wife's Caribbean home of Trinidad. Its a yeast roll, and while they enjoy it year round, its a tradition for Christmas morning. We had ours with Matouk's Chow & pepper sauce.

Our dinner consisted of smoked turkey, sausage & mushroom dressing, green bean casserole with fresh beans, roasted potatoes & garlic, roasted butternut squash, and giblet gravy.

While smoking the turkey I also smoked a pack of beef cheeks. So after leftovers today, tonight were having the cheeks.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
