Pork Rib Roast

Postby 'BoutTime » Sun Nov 24, 2019 5:00 pm

Just bought a pork rib roast from Costco, the ones they usually have around the Holidays. I bought one last year, and cut it up into pork chops to cook in the Ninja Foodie. The first one, the best looking of them, came put pretty good, but the rest of them were lean and not tender at all. At $5 a pound, it wasn't that big of a hit on the ol' wallet. But I swore I'd never buy another one again.
Never say never.
Since they are now down to $3 a pound, I decided to try again, only this time smoking it. I found a few vids for doing them, but the smoking temps varied greatly. Any recommendations on temperature? A thermometer will determine the time, of course.

What I like to do is cook it about 250 till 140 pull and then rest for about ten minutes maybe 15 and then enjoy.

Well, this is a revolt'n development. My pork roast is now at 141° IT - on one end. It's 123° on the other. I flipped ends/sides half an hour ago, and the temp difference remained the same. I used a third thermometer, and it verified the readings.
Not sure what to do, but I plan to let the one end go to 145°, and cut a few ribs off that end, then bring the rest to 140°.

The cut portion was pretty good, but the part I left smoking did the same thing – with a 15° difference.
If there was a saving grace of this meal, it was the mess of collard greens I made. I had a three-rib section of some baby back ribs I smoked the other day, so I pulled the meat off and put it in the greens. Tasted PDG.
Bottom line is, even though this was a practice roast, I doubt I'll do another one for a while. At least until I can figure out the TD problem.

One thing I've learned throughout the years is that sometimes you just get a crappy piece of meat. If you enjoy that cut I wouldn't give up.

This is the first thing I have cooked on the Pit Boss, so I am far from being discouraged. I just need to experiment and practice. I couldn't figure out how to adjust the P-Setting, thinking using a toothpick was too silly to work. But work it did. Nothing in the manual indicates how to set it.
I had the pit set on 250°, but it ran a bit high. I used P-3, setting it as if I knew what I was doing.
Anxious to do a brisket, and a beef rib section. Wife pushing me to do a chicken. So I see some good eatin' in the near future.

I wonder if wrapping that Rib Roast about 1/2 way thru, would help it be more juicy and tender :?:

Eating another bowl right now, with some HEB Jalapaño Cornbread. The rib meat I added really does the trick.
