With every recipe my confidence grow and my desire to do more and different things. Can't wait till Christmas.
That's what it's all about.... I'd recommend you DON'T wait till Christmas. that's 18 days away. That's 18 new recipes... Don't know what your plans are but you can't beat a prime rib or a ham on the grill. Follow SR's recs on either and you'll be just fine. The only variance I do with the prime rib is I don't french the ribs. I just leave it alone as far as that's concerned. Pack it heavy with a rub (spray with oilve oil first because the rub sticks better) to get a marvelous crust. I assure you you'll NEVER do a pr conventionally again. If that's too steep for the budget get a bone in ham, and do a search here for all of the ways to do that. Just don't get one of those spirals that are already precut. They have a tendency to dry out.
Keep up the good work, and keep us posted with your accomplishments...
