Smoked Standing Rib Roast

standing ribroast

This is the simplified version of my roast in this video. It’s the ultimate rib roast for the holiday season or any celebration with a lot of people coming over. It’s a very primal but yet forgiving way of cooking such a huge cut of beef. It’s essentially the birth of BBQ in a dish.
The standing Rib Roast is something you need to try if you already experienced a lot of roasts and smoking projects in your BBQ lifetime.
