Ok, I guess my first smoke is going to be a 7.5lb rib in Prime Rib roast. (Saturday 1/12/08)
How much will the temperature rise during the hold period? I am planning on bringing the roast to a temperature of 125 degrees (smoker @250 degrees) and then turning the smoker down to 140 degrees and holding for 4 hrs?
Will the temp of the roast rise more than 10 degrees?
Also I want to taste the smoke but not have it overpower the meat, any suggestions on how many wood would also be appreciated. (I only have the wood that came with the unit.)
I don't want the PR's inner pieces to cook to more than 135 degrees.
