I'm smoking another Prime Rib that will be perfect! I start by soaking the chips in sweet Rum, Bourbon-whatever. Pierce into meat and insert 10-12 cloves garlic, heavy handed rub of the spicy chicken rub and brush on mix of honey, oregano +++?. This smoker is now 6 years old and we have done the best turkeys, chix, pork and fish. Love it!
