  • Pellet Grill



  • 2-3 days before cooking unwrap the rib roast and pat completely dry and place on a sheet pan with a cooling rack in the fridge.
  • On Cook Day Preheat the Smoker to 225 Degrees F.
  • Rub the Rib Roast with avocado oil on all sides including the bones then liberally season the roast on all sides patting the seasoning into the roast.
  • Place the temperature probe in at a 45 degree angle so the point of the probe is in the center at the thickest part of the roast. Place roast on the smoker and cook for 4-5 hours until roast reaches an internal temperature of 125 degrees F.
  • Once roast has reached 125 degrees F. remove the roast from the pit and rest for 45 minutes to 1 hour before removing the bones and slicing.
  • If you plan to use the reheat method preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. and place sliced prime rib on a sheet pan with about ¾ cup of au jus and cook for 3-5 minutes just long enough to warm the meat. For well done you will need to cook sliced prime rib for about 18-22 minutes.
