I finally have my BD6 smoker back up and running (puck burner issue--great customer service from Bradley). The wife really likes the cold smoked ribeye steaks so we had friends over for dinner last night. The steaks were a huge hit. The kicker is that I bough a rib roast from Costco and cut the steaks for the dinner and then used the rest of the roast for my first smoked prime rib in the bradley.
I'm really pleased with how the prime rib turned out. I put in in with the steaks for a an hour and twenty minutes of cold smoke. I then pulled the steaks and hot smoked the roast for four hours at 280, using hickory pecan and oak. I was surprised how quickly it cooked even if it was only 5 lbs. Having the prime rib for dinner tonight. Needless to say I suspect I'll be getting a request for a full blown prime rib roast for the holidays.
SWMBO who was kind of skeptical when I bought the Bradley last February is now a huge fan. She keeps planning dinner parties to show it off.
