OH MY GAWD!!! Outrageous looking prime rib. As it happens, we're heading to Lawry's on Memorial Day---but you had better believe that I will be trying your technique for a smoked prime rib cook.

Keep those success stories (and pics) coming.

By the way, I probed a thick fillet of sturgeon that I painted with dijon and maple syrup. I probed to 140º as my finishing temperature. Set the temp at 200º, and in about 90 minutes, we were eating fish that was so moist, we had to keep napkins very close! I am becoming more and more a fan of using the probe. Obviously for ribs---not so easy. Sorry I'm running at the mouth in this response, but I'm about to segue on to my chicken half experiment too! I probed some chicken halves in the thick fleshy part of the thigh. Set the internal temp to be done at 165º. Set the cook temp to 300º. I wanted to see once and for all if chicken skin might get crispy at this higher temp. I can officially now say that I don't give a darn about crispy skin any more. The chicken was so incredibly moist, and tasty. The skin was fun to suck on a bit, eat a little of, and then just discard what I didn't want to eat. I think that it took about 1 hour and 35 minutes in the timing department for the chicken to cook to 165º.

Cheers

The Prime rib was awesome.
Im ready to do it again, but none of the stores have Prime Rib on sale.
So far only rib roasts are on sale.
Will it be much different then Prime?



Smartypants thought comes to mind...

Yep you'll be able to buy three instead of one. Wink
There is not a "high choice" category. There is 'choice' and then 'prime'. I doubt the meat producers expect consumers, including anyone on this forum, to be meat judges when we go to the grocery store or meat market, although I did dabble in it 30 years ago during my FFA days. I am sure some of you contest cookers like to talk about how to pick out the best looking cuts of meat, however.

Just consider this another "Smartypants" post, in good humor.

Yep GLH,there is no USDA grade of high in a category.

As you suggested,many of us look at an expensive steak and check for marbling,a vein of gristle running through it,etc.

The" branded" beef, like Certified Angus Beef, advertise that what you get will be from the top of the grading pyramid ,where prime is the very top and choice may go down another 10%-12%.

They" claim" to keep their shipments in the upper range of choice.

The Hereford programs have a similar program,that they give their own assurances without USDA grading.

Some high end markets may offer these and Prime.
My apology, forgot to to say how great the photos were. They really helped me. Can't find any "Prime" meat here. The roast I cooked was a Hereford [Choice] Rib Roast. Some markets call a Rib Roast a Prime Rib; but the meat is "Choice". The Hereford Rib Roast was $9.95 per pound. Only "Prime" Rib Roast I have seen are in the specilized meat catalogs, ie, Allen Brothers, $250.00+ You all are great!
