What's on the Grill?

Looks like everyone is taking a break from grilling this winter but I'm sure things will pick up since spring is here.

What's on the grill this year? I've got plans for smoked rib eye. I tried it at a bbq joint in town and thought I'd give it a try this year. Anyone have suggestions on a rub and smoking time/temp?

Winter didn't stop me from grilling. I Q'd in the rain, and liked it :)

If it were me I wouldn't add any spices to the Rib Eye except Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. That also depends on the cut.

How are you planning on smoking your Rib Eye? Will it be cut into steaks or kept as a whole roast?

What you decide to do will determine the cooking times.

I've been grilling (gas grill) all winter but haven't done a slow cooking yet. It's still too cold.

I bought four big bags of Kingsford Competition All Natural Briquettes on sale and now I have to get the Weber ready to go.

Munky, Glad there are others that are silly like me, grilling in the rain. We are both lucky to be in California (although it did rain quite a bit this year).

I want to do a whole bone in roast, probably around 4-5 bones.

I've been grilling and BBQing all year, like I always do. I don't think this forum has a large number of folks who take notice. Not like dedicated Q forums.

...and in the snow. I sometimes have to shovel off the deck to get to the grill.

I am following a diet now. So I eat my chicken, meat or fish always grilled. I feel healthier and in fact the meat tastes much better.

Jd,

I enjoy adding fuel to my neighbors opinion of me. Yes I am crazy for grilling in the rain. Definitely eat better then they do to! :)

Are you going to be using a Weber kettle, Gas, or smoker?
Different grills, different techniques will have to be done.Depending on what you have.

Everyone has his, or her own personal preferences when it comes to smoking or grilling. Personally I wouldn't add any more spices then necessary to the Rib Eye. Sometimes too much takes away the flavor of the meat.
I'm just sayin'..

All natural briquettes? Wow! Never heard of that before. I'll look for them. Have you tried them?

I have a double hibachi and it can be hard to find chunk charcoal that fits easily. Lots of the chunks are too big.
