    Insert the probe into the thickest part of the roast, avoiding the bones and any large pockets of fat. Place the prime rib, fat-side up, directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and sear for 30 minutes (starting at a higher heat will help render the fat and develop a crispy crust).

    Reduce the Traeger temperature to 300℉. Continue to cook the roast until cooked your desired temperature (120℉ for rare, 130℉ for medium-rare, 140℉ for medium, or 150℉ for well-done) is reached, 3-4 hours more. Check the internal temperature at 30-minute intervals throughout the cook time.
