Alton Brown's Prime Rib Sun, 10/1/06 4:53 PM (permalink)
Newbie here and loving this site. Spent all last evening reading all the neat stuff. Many members referenced Alton Brown's prime rib technique. Does anyone know where I can get that. I hate to admit I have not heard of Alton Brown. TV? Thanks in advance for your help. Betsy.

            It's not as complicated as it sounds. It takes a few days to age the meat, but your results will be worth it. I tried it last year for Xmas dinner and it was a hit.

              Now I know why I eat prime ribs in good restaurants. I don't have an azalea pot and I don't have a place to store one, and if I did have one I would not be able to find it 3 days before I wanted to cook the ribs which I probably can't afford anyhow.

                At home dry aging a rib roast has been a goal for some time. I have a mini fridge that I could use to do the job. But contrary to the way Alton suggests, I want to create a 21 day one with techniques that I have used and seen in my career. What I recall is that ventilation is important, but an ultra violet light helps too.

                I think that I could hook up a small fan, but wonder if the U.V. lights are the same as the black lights that I see at the mall 'head shops'?

                Searching for information, I came up with this:

                www.askthemeatman.com/dry_aging_beef_info.htm - 58k

                It sounds simple enough. And to me there will be no waste or loss as when I trim the outside, my dogs will eat those scraps.
                When all is done, then I can vacuum seal them.

                    I do the Alton Brown recipe with all kinds of beef roasts, but skip the azalea pot -- what would you do with some damn beef-roast azalea pot between cookings anyway? And the roast turns out fine without the pot, but doing everything else. The probe thermometer takes any guessing out of the process.

                      Alton is my favorite and I usually enjoy any of his techniques and recipes.

                      His prime rib is one of my favorites.

                        Paul do you actually do your prime rib like this?

                          Just have me cook one for you on the smoker. They are excellent cooked this way.
