Meat / Slow cooking a prime rib?
« Last post by watchdog56 on Today at 01:34:08 pm »
I was out of town and we go to a resteraunt that says they slow cook their prime rib overnight. They run a special on Saturday night only for this. Let me tell you it is the best and most tender prime rib I have had in about 30 years when a resteraunt where I live used to do it. The sizes are 12 oz, 18 oz, and 24 oz. I usually get the 18 oz and they are about 1 1/2 inches thick and perfect medium all the way through. It melts in your mouth. I asked them if they sell their rub or if they would tell me what was in it and they said they do not sell it and it is  a secret. When I do a prime rib in the smoker at 225 it takes 3-4 hours when I pull it at 135.  Does anyone know how this can be cooked overnight and sit most of the next day until supper time and still have it the way you want it? I would think even if they cooked it at 150 it would take maybe 6-7 hours.
If you purchase the cold smoke adapter from Bradley it comes with a bypass plug, so you won't have to purchase or extend your cable.

....So I assume the cold smoker only attaches to the heat chamber via the two holes/hooks at the top?  Does it sit flush?  Is some type of adhesive needed, or is it not sitting flush not a concern?

I may be reading your description incorrectly. In case I'm not; you detach the generator from the cabinet, and the generator attaches to the cold smoke adapter. There is a flexible metal hose that extends from the cold smoke adapter to the cabinet. To the end of that hose, you attach an adapter plate. That plate fits where the generator goes onto the cabinet. The hose fitting to the cabinet is flush. Some smoke may escape around the edges, but that should be of no concern. For best results when you have the cold setup, it is best to ensure the cold smoker attachment and generator are lower than the cabinet.

Welcome Andy,
Pick yourself up something like this to control your temperature swings and all will be good! Cheers,

Most are using PID controllers that have done mods and even those like myself who haven't . I run my 4 rack using an inkbird  308 temp controller with the stock element and have 0 issues with maintaining a constant temperature. Always within -3 or + 3 F degrees from whatever I set it at!

Hi all
New member, proud new owner of a 4 rack digital smoker!
I'll be poking around the forum, looking for ideas and hopefully sharing some success stories!

Have done a lot for reading on this very informative forum. Planning to buy 4 or 6 rack digital smoker.
It look like the main general problem with these smokers is getting up to set temperature and maintaining it?
Fitting the second 500 watt heater seem to solve most of the problem.
What can the Bradley digital controller  handel in terms of amps with the two heaters installed? The current should be less on the controller as we are on 220 volts.
Our minimum temperature in winter is about 28F and in summer the max is about 107F. In these temperatures the need for a second heat may not be necessary?
Please give me some feedback for me to make up my mind.
awesome.  thanks.   I'll probably get the PID and bulid the enclosure with the config fairly fixed.  So I assume the cold smoker only attaches to the heat chamber via the two holes/hooks at the top?  Does it sit flush?  Is some type of adhesive needed, or is it not sitting flush not a concern?
