I'm wanting to smoke a 10-12 lb boneless ribeye for the Christmas crowd this year. Does anyone do this or had success in the past. I have a few ideas already. Not necessarily wanting to use a bunch of smoke just cook one on my egg. THANKS

I believe the first ingredient for success would be to invite me as a taste tester.

I've done a few but was in a vertical offset smoker not an egg. I did similar to a brisket just didn't cook (higher temp) as long ... heavy rub (course black pepper, garlic & onion powder, smoked paprika) then rolled smoke 8+ hours, kick up heat and bring center internal temp up to 130-135 (medium rare). the ends were medium-medium well (135-145),

I'd use this recipe with 2 thermometers, one in the middle (rare to med-rare and one towards an end for Med-rare to med).
Instead of 40 min at 200, I'd approximate it to 20min per pound, keeping an eye on the thermometers.

I'd hit it with a little oak smoke in the beginning, but that's it.

Don't overcook it. In fact, you might want to go light on smoke to preserve the superior tastiness of the best slab off a bovine.

I did an 8 lbr a couple of weekends ago. Rubbed it with olive oil and montreal steak seasoning slow smoked with mesquite for 6 hours. Came out medium rare with a nice smoke ring and was delish. Wifey loved it. Leftovers got sliced up and sauteed into fajitas. Yep they were good too

I slow cook/smoke on a big webber grill, using either plum or persimmon because of their delicate influence...cook at what you would thing is super low/slow because it will generally get done faster than you would think. Two thermometers..not too close to bone. I usually cook till the center is almost med rare and eat the outside (Med- rare) and reheat (later) the center again to get it to med rare and enjoy again as much as the first sitting....Ditto to olive oil and montreal seasoning with extra course kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.
I like to have the complimentary dish something that can be readily available to serve so when the meat is done you can eat right away.
I AM HUNGRY...do one every christmas.
