What's cooking for Christmas ?

It's time to get this thread started. Speaking for my self, I haven't yet decided on a rib roast or a beef tenderloin, like on the WSM home page this month. I also saw Alton Brown (at least that's who I think it was) stuff a beef tenderloin with a couple lobster tails. That's pretty decadent but "Hey" it's only Christmas once a year. The jury is still out on what we're having at our house.

Glock, I haven't had a chance yet. I've been too busy with work to do any low and slow. That's going to change over the next two weeks. We're having a four day weekend at Christmas and a three day weekend at New Years. The butcher shop is on my list of errands today. First, I gotta decide what to buy.

Well we are going to have very limited cook facilities, I have a couple of open grills and 1 closed grill grill. Something with a little glamour with what I have to cook on will hopefully be this:

But it really can't suck, we will be in Hawaii cooking it!

15 lb boned prime rib. Wife's family is Italian so I'm thinking about either a risotto, or soft polenta with chestnuts or pistachios as a side.

I'm having my entire family up for Christmas. Sunday we'll do a small standing rib roast for my wife and a couple nephews. Monday will be BBQ day for the entire Decker clan, 15 slabs of loin's, 2 bags tri-tips and 3 hams.
Tuesday is the official party, traditional turkey and the hams. Wednesday I hope most of them go home but the kid's will stay around, ski and eat. Well find something from the freezer to smoke. This is my first cook since October and last for a while. I'm ripping my pit apart over the winter and re-bunging it.

For some reason, I'm suddenly feeling aroused....

Are you boning it, or having it boned? 8-[

I'm doing a bone in prime rib as well, probably about half that size though.

risotto with mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes come to mind...would you use chicken or beef broth to cook something like that ?

I'm thinking chicken John.

I worry about threads where guys are bunging and boning something, usually leads to trouble.

Larry, buying it boned!

John, definitely chicken stock. I like to use dried mushrooms when doing a mushroom risotto. I use the rehydration water to enrich the stock. MMMM
