Primo Prime Rib Roast Recipe

Prime Rib Roast

It’s finally time to get outdoors!

If you’re like me, you’re firing up the grill every chance you get. Preparing great food while enjoying the great outdoors is a one-two punch of happiness for me.

How about mixing it up with this Grilled, Smoked Prime Rib recipe that takes a traditionally inside meal – outside!

1 (5 lb.) Prime Rib Roast
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tbsp. ancho chile powder
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. sage
salt and pepper
wood chips for smoking, such as hickory, apple or cherry

Directions: Combine the spices and garlic in a bowl with the garlic, salt and pepper and mix to combine. Coat the Prime Rib Roast heavily and evenly and set aside until the coals are ready. Get coals ready for grilling and soak wood chips in water, wine or apple juice for smoking. When the coals are extremely hot, sear the roast over the hottest part of the grill evenly on all sides. Add the wood chips and move to the coolest part of the grill. In a flat smoker, this is farther from the firebox. In a column smoker, this is higher up from the coals. The ideal smoker heat and time is 300 degrees for two hours.

If you don’t have a thermometer on your smoker, continue checking the coals and wood chips. Use a meat thermometer until your roast has an internal temperature of 130 degrees. Remove from the smoker and let rest thirty minutes before slicing.

Servings: 6 to 8

What’s on Your Thanksgiving Menu?



So I’ve already told you that I MUST have a turkey on my Thanksgiving table.

But that doesn’t mean there won’t be other options. I like to have a spiral sliced ham on board, too, so I can make future breakfasts and lunches with it.

Have YOU ever been daring and served something a bit less traditional for Thanksgiving? Perhaps a gorgeous Chateaubriand or a prime rib roast?

That’s not to say that those amazing meals are not classics in their own right, they’re just not strictly by the book like a Thanksgiving turkey.

They’re edgy. Daring. Different.

And I like that.

What will you be serving this Thanksgiving? Traditional or living on the edge? Tell me!
