Gene Smokes a Rib Roast

I managed to sneak in smoking a rib roast yesterday.

The roast, fresh from one of the cows we just got back from the butcher.

Seasoned with just salt and pepper

Into my smaller smoker @ 225 degrees with some hickory wood.

after 2 hours in the smoker

after 4 hours

Done at a meat temp of 135 degrees and 6 hours

Mmmmm, mmmmm! Tasted even better than it looks!!!

I really need to take more time for cooking!!

Thanks Cowgirl!!!
I was still out in the fields and in the garden while it was in the smoker....I just checked on it every time I went to the fridge, which seems to be quite frequently. LOL
Those "lunchlady" plastic gloves come in really handy too!!
