dinner party at Griff's

I'm cooking dinner for four couples tonight. A couple of rib roasts, king crab, roasted veggies, garlic mashed potatoes, salad and someone else is bringing dessert. Here's the roasts. I put one on 40 minutes before the second one so one comes out medium and the other rare to medium rare.



More pics later if Mr. Beefeater will allow.

You may not need dessert after those roasts, those look beautiful. Good luck and I hope Mr. Beefeater allows consciousness enough for some good pictures.

Re: dinner party at Griff's

Can't wait for the finish. Sometimes when we have people over I still get a little excited cause I know they have no idea about the good food they are gonna go home thinking about.

Also what is the red stuff in the WSM, do they all do that? I always clean it out of mine cause I thought it looked like rust, and I was doing something wrong.

Re: dinner party at Griff's

The WSM thawed a circle on my deck.


I over cooked the roasts some, but no one complained.


Here's the king crab.


We had a great holiday dinner.

Re: dinner party at Griff's

You should have called; the invite got lost in the mail.
What was the time and temp on the roasts?

My WSM was running really hot last night (I have no clue why), started at 400* and then came down to 375*. I had intended to pull the rare roast at 120* but got distracted by the ethanol and didn't pull it until 125* which amounted to about 2 hour and 10 minutes of cooking time.
