Sunday’s Football and Prime Rib

My team lost and lost big. But who cares? I ate well.

I had determined I was making a smoked prime rib today, bone-in. My wife does not like beef rare so she overcooked it after I took it off the grill. It was still ok.

Prime rib is not the easiest cut of meat to cook. Bone in, you’re going to make a flap, slicing the part with the bones prior to cooking. You’re also going to have to cut the fat cap on top and tie the roast together or when the fat cap shrinks, it won’t baste the meat. I also prepped some hickory wood chips for the grill.

I had mine out on the grill for about 2 hours. I only had a five pound roast since we only had three people here. I also put it back in the oven for a few minutes. It came out rare. I was pleased with the smokiness and the seasoning (rosemary, oregano, basil, pepper, sea salt and a couple other herbs/seasonings). It was not nearly as good as my last prime rib. I wasn’t paying as much attention to this one as the last one. I was eating that one while it was cooking.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
