It just ain’t right to serve Prime Rib without Yorkshire pudding, even if you are camping in the woods. This is the side dish for the Apple Smoked Prime Rib recipe. I think what made this so good was the prime rib drippings were slowly being reduced in the red wine, garlic and herbs in the smoker as well as the apple wood smoke infusion. Yowza.
6 large eggs
2-1/4 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl combine the eggs, milk, and salt. Whisk to mix. Whisk in the flour and 2 tablespoons melted prime rib drippings. Chill the mixture in the cooler for 2 hours.
Set up the grill for indirect grilling and preheat to high. You can use a cast iron pan, or a roasting pan (14’ round or wide) that can take high heat. I am a BIG fan of cast iron. I used a Cast Iron Muffin Pan for this recipe on the grill.
Get the grill hot. Pour the Smoked Prime rib drippings in each cup or cover the bottom of the pan (about 2 tablespoons per cup) Place the pan on the grill, you want the fat to fry/boil super hot.
Pour the batter into the cups of frying fat shift the pan over to more indirect heat or turn down the flame to medium high and tightly cover the grill. Cook until the pudding is puffed and nicely browned, about 15 minutes.
