Smoked Herb Rib Roast


The most important tool for properly carving your roast is a sharp knife — be safe! If you're using a meat fork, don't pierce the roast to hold it in place. Use the back of the fork instead (tongs work great, too). If you have a rib roast, cut each slice along the rib bone. Always cut across the grain for maximum tenderness.
