Hey guys, I made smoked prime rib over the weekend and it turned out great. This is a really easy recipe and it tastes really good. I went to my local farmer’s market and got a really good steak rub. It’s pretty easy to make and consists of Salt, Pepper, Minced Onions, Minced Garlic, Dry Mustard, and Thyme. I rubbed down the Prime Rib and let it sit out for about 45 minutes to let it come to room temperature. I scored the fat on the top to help it render more easily.
I preheated the smoker to 250F and put the prime rib in fat side up with a meat thermometer to make sure that it came out perfect. I cooked it until it was 130F internally and let it rest for about 30 minutes on a tented platter.
The end result was a perfectly succulent prime rib and everyone loved it. I think next time I might mince up some garlic and inject it into the prime rib.
