    Place the prime rib, bone-side down, on the grill grates. Insert the probe into the thickest part of the roast, avoiding the bones and any large pockets of fat. Close the lid and cook until the internal temperature reaches 120℉-130℉ for rare to medium-rare, about 5 hours (begin checking the internal temperature every 45 minutes after the 2 hour mark).
