      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Prime Rib Roast

Recommended Posts

So I'm gonna make one up for Christmas. I didn't get a huge one because we are also having ham. What's the best recipe for these? I have a rotissari or would you roast it?

I'm doing the same thing. A few keys: let the roast get to room temp before cooking it, a few hours laying out in the kitchen. While its warming to room tempt season it to allow the seasoning to soak into the roast. Cook at a very low temp, not higher then 275. This takes longer but you it it to cook through while maintaining pink throughout. Remember prime rib should be served rare to medium, never more than medium or you destroy the flavor.

My plan: put 1/2" of ahjus in the base of the pan. Cover the top of the roast with minced garlic, salt and pepper. Then cook at 200 for +-4 hours.

Here's my secret and I do quite a few of these, if it was summer I would rotissere it with a beer based marinade, but it's too cold so put it in the oven. Go to Target and buy a Tru Temp digital thermometer with a probe and the wire attached.

Put the probe, in the middle of the roast, not all the way thru also making sure that it doesn't hit the bone if it is bone in.As Quetico said let it get it room temp for the spices and then put it in the oven. Shut the oven door and the wire and temp reader will stick out on the counter so you can read it.

I like mine rare to medium rare (temp of 125-130) as I don't like to eat my shoe with over done meat, so a 3-4 pound roast takes about an hour and a half at 375 or so. So I pull the roast when the temp hits 120, and tent it for about 10 minutes with the probe still in it because it continues to cook. I use my elec. filet knife and cut it. If you have too much other stuff to cook and can't make a horseradish whip side dip, buy some Sandwhich Pal (Cub) and serve that on the side and that's very tasty.

Covered or uncovered during the oven process? I am having about 30 people for Christmas. Doing ham, spare ribs, and prime rib. How big of a rib do I need? I planned on getting a 17 lb rib, then trimming some steaks off of it for later use.

Anyone hit there rib with some smoker time before the oven?

Uncovered in the oven, I usually put mine in a 9x13 pyrex pan.

If you figure a pound of meat per person and that's hungry eaters you should be good to go for meat.

You better figure about 20 minutes per pound of meat of meat you are gonna cook.

I've always done the first 15 minutes at 425 degrees, then lowered it to 275 for the remainder until it hits 120 in the center as stated by MNHuntress and her follwing directions.

This process gets the roast "sealed" to keep the juices in.

I keep the smoker flavor for the ribs personally. I don't care for the strong smoke flavor on a prime piece of meat. To each their own though!

Chef beat me to it. Cook it at a high temperature to help seal it. I do it at the high temp for about 1/2 hour or so. I have cooked lots of these on the weber and that is what I will be doing on Christmas. I put the coals on the sides and it gets up to about 450 at the start and then the temps drop to under or around 300 for the rest of the time. A large 15 lber takes me about 3 hours. I season mine up the night before and take it out about an hour before I put it on the Weber. For seasoning I use Motreal steak from Durkees and also take whole garlic cloves and using a knife cut a slit and put the clove in it just deep enough to bury the clove about an inch and a half. It is never to cold out for the weber. Below is a photo of one I did at work.

chaffmj, thanks for the pic. Looks great. Hey, not to change the subject, but where was that pic in your avatar taken? I used to guide canoe trips up there for Charles L. Sommers (Northern Tier) when I was in college. Can't put a name to it, but it looks like somewhere I was at...

That is one good looking PR my friend!

Another tried-and-true process is a Rock Salt or Kosher Salt crust. Coat the entire roast with salt 2-3 days prior to your roasting day and put it in the fridge with a drip pan under it to catch the drips.

Roast as noted above and it comes out perfect every time.

Merry Christmas!

Well, you have a lot of good advice so far and to be honest a prime rib is such an easy cook, there are several ways to cook them. Looking at Chaffmj's picture reinforces cooking them in a barbecue or smoker. I tend to agree with low oven or pit temps as they keep the doneness even throughout the roast, but I go with lower temps than mentioned here. Something like 220°-250° is what I like. I also don't sear at the beginning, but rather do an end sear...and it's not really a sear, just enough high heat to crisp up the crust. When they get to my target temp for doneness, I remove and let them rest about 10 minutes or so, then either back on the pit or into a 500° oven for maybe 6 or 8 minutes. Those cable thermometers are the ticket, I trust them more than the clock, plus you can adjust your pit temp up or down as needed if you are shooting for a certain sit down time. This first one was pulled around 130° and the bottom one was pulled closer to 125°.

Nice pics guys and great pointers. I have heard of searing and then slow cooking. A guy at work told me he flash cooks it. Sets the oven to 550 degrees. Once it's heated that high he puts it in the oven and then shuts the oven off. Never opens it until the thermometer says it's done. Has anyone tried this at all?

Yeah, I've tried that. Didn't know it was called flash cooked, but that name sure fits. They come out good.

I've also done the 325° cook, which I call "Betty Crocker" style because hundreds of cookbooks use that method. This works too.

I've even had them deep fried in a turkey fryer, unbelievably good.

Heck, earlier this year I got up really early on Saturday, took my fillet knife and snuck a 5/8" slice off of one we were going to have for Sunday dinner and grilled it for breakfast. No one was the wiser. Heheeeee.

You know when I said a prime rib is easy to cook, it really is.... The two main reason folks get nervous is because it's a really expensive piece of meat that most of us can only afford a couple of times a year. And, when you cook a big one you always have guests over and you want to show off a little.

I bought mine yesterday at $7.50 per lb....wow. Did beef go up a little? Oh well, it is Christmas and it is for her family, so I will only charge them $5.00 per plate grin

It has a 2 inch lip on it. Does anyone know what the point of that is?

Okay gotcha....here is the deal, a big lip means it is cut from the chuck end (or forward end of the steer). The lip is actually part of the chuck roll. Now, a roast from the loin end will have a bigger eye and will be a little more tender. But, a chuck end roast will have more flavor, because of that marbling.... I like the chuck end ones if I have a choice.

The lip always seems to taste the best. Its very tender and filled with flavor. If you get an eye with go marbling they are good as well, but not as good as the lip.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
    • Use 1x2 (actually 3/4"x1 1/2") PVC trim boards for firring strips on the face of studs. The PVC won't absorb any moisture and works well as a thermo break from the aluminum studs. They can be found at any of the big box lumber stores.
    • Moisture is likely condensing on the metal studs and being transferred to the paneling. Furring strips will probably be the best bet with metal studs. You can run them horizontal or vertical and then just attach the paneling to that. I personally wouldn't use a vapor barrier. Some guys do though. 
    • I have a 6.5x14 Ultra Shack. I'm guessing was built early 2000s. Had to tear apart interior walls due to moisture build up. Steel frame, with aluminum 1.5x1.5 or 1"x1" tube studs. Previously insulated with pink board foam between studs, with a thin quarter inch thick foam pad glued to the studs, then paneling glued over the top of it all. I'm thinking the issue was no vapor barrier? I have it all torn apart down to the studs. Wondering how I should finish it, use a vapor barrier such as poly? Or no vapor barrier? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!  -Nate
    • Check striker's page.  They have some of last years stuff onsale.
    • It's been awhile since I've had time to upload pictures. There has been a lot of progress made!  The siding is up and finished! The process was more difficult to manage with the bends and my lack of tape measure skill lol If i were to do the bends again I would make sure to order 2 sheets extra and order them at the length required to wrap the entire house. From the point on the nose all the way back to the middle of the rear wall. There ended up being vertical seams along the sides here, which in hind sight, isn't ideal.  One thing that i'm not sure I've noted is the bottom white trim. A lot of people use J- Channel on the bottom but you can order a trim called a step down. Which works awesome around the lower edges and doesn't fill up with ice and snow.  The trailer lights are all wired up and working. Seeing whats back behind these big trailers always drives me crazy so i bought the ones with reverse lights built in.  The maiden voyage was out into the parking lot and then back into the shop. It didn't fall apart so it was a success.  I took a few pictures of the bending process. It was a pretty simple setup. A big piece of angle aluminum secured between 2 - 2x4's with 2 clamps a bar and a big hammer worked really well. If you're going to do this make sure to add half of the rib height to whatever the measurement you're trying to hit is. And as i mentioned before, buy the length to wrap the house from the front point all the way to the middle of the rear wall.  We would clamp the bar down then hit it with the hammer to "break" the corrugations. Once they were broken it bent extremely easy.  We also got most of the lighting on the inside roughed in. I have 4 110 outlets and 2 USB plug ins for cell phone/misc charging. All of the lighting will run on 12V. I'm no engineer but, each of the lights in the picture draw 240mA so with them all on I'm thinking i'll get about 30 hours of run time on one battery. There will be 2 batteries for lighting and USB and a separate one for the heater so I should be ok for a weekend "off the grid". I'll have a generator as well to run the TV and other goodies which can charge the batteries as well.  I also picked up the material for the interior. Menard's is having their 11% sale until 10/21/17 and also a sale on their 5/16" Cedar tongue and groove. Between the two sales I got the price down to just under $1 per square foot. Apparently, they aren't stocking this specific Cedar anymore so I had to buy 3 different stores out of stock to get all that I needed. In the end I still didn't have enough to do the roof so i bought some Birch plywood to finish that part. I think a lighter ceiling will help the place feel a little bigger anyways. I got antsy last night and finished some of the cedar boards with Natural Finish Watco Danish Oil. It turned out to be the exact look I was going for. From what I've read i think finishing them all before installation is the way to go. Then once everything is up doing a quick coat of Danish to even everything out.  At this point i'm counting the Steps left to go instead of how many I have done! It's getting close to starting the fun part ( the interior). I'll keep everyone posted on the progress!
