Rotisserie Rib Roast with a Pesto Rub & Charddonay Smoked Sea Salt

Rotisserie Rib Roast with a Pesto Rub and Chardonnay Smoked Sea Salt - Easy Life Meal & Party Planning One of my favorite cuts of meat is a rib eye. Slap it on a plate when it's barely mooing and of course, with a great wine and I'm in heaven.

Having our friends over who love their meat and wine the same way, my husband and I decided to cook a rib roast on the rotisserie. I prepped the meat with my pesto, ensuring that all the crevices are filled. The secret salt? It is a Chardonnay Smoked Sea Salt. They smoke the sea salt from Oak Chardonnay wine barrels for a distinctive and wonderful flavor .I have found these new type of salts and I am really enjoying cooking with them.
   Needless to say when our eyes rolled to the back of our heads we new we hit a home run with this recipe.

  1. Oooo! Chardonnay Smoked Sea Salt is something new. I wonder where to buy that.


    1. Hi Judy, thank you so much for your interest in the salt. I was traveling on the west coast of Florida and stopped at a little shop that mixed its own seasoning. I will look and try to find the name and get it to you.
