Smoked Prime Rib

20

3

Mesquite

Tender prime rib is given a Meat Church rub crust and slow-roasted over mesquite pellets for a kick of bold flavor. Pro tip from Matt– melt a generous amount of butter over the prime rib while it rests after cooking to take this roast to the next level.

    Insert the probe into the thickest part of the roast, avoiding any large pockets of fat. Place the rib roast directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and cook until the internal temperature reaches 125°F for medium-rare, or your preferred temperature. If desired, baste the roast with Worcestershire sauce, beef stock, or water every 45 minutes.

    Remove the roast from the grill and transfer to a cutting board with a well. Place the butter on top of the roast, tent with aluminum foil, and let rest for 10-15 minutes. As the roast rests, the butter will melt over the meat and the internal temperature will continue to rise to a final temperature of 130-135°F.
