Prime Rib is the delicacy protein at any dinner table. I find myself making one every month or other month. It’s the perfect meat for a juicy tender meal and you can do so many recipes to enhance the experience. Here I want to share one of my favorite recipes for Bone-in Prime Rib.
Garlic and Herb Rib Roast
- 1 3 Bone-in prime rib
- 8 Cloves Garlic 6 smashed and 2 minced
- 1 Handful Thyme
- 1 Handful Rosemary
- 1 tbsp Lemon juice
- 2 tbsp Hot Sauce
- 2 tbsp Kosher Salt
- 2 tbsp Crushed Black pepper
- 2 tbsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Stick Butter
- Prep all of your ingredients, and pat dry the prime rib.
- Take your chef knife and cut it along the back where the bones are and cut it down about 4 inches. You do not want to cut it off, this is the crevice where you will be stuffing rosemary, thyme and smashed garlic.
- Once you have the cut on the back of the prime rib stuff it with a handful of thyme, a handful of rosemary and 6 smashed garlic cloves. You can also season prior to add a deeper flavor!
- Now that you have all the herbs and garlic in the crevice your cut, take 4 twines of butcher string and tie it up tight so nothing can fall out during the bbq.
- Now season your prime rib with salt, pepper and garlic. Season generously.
- Set your smoker up for low and slow indirect smoke.
- Set your temp for 250 and apply 2 6 ounce chucks of a whiskey barrel. This will add a nice bold smokey flavor to the outside of the prime-rib.
- Place your prime rib in the center of the smoker and let smoke. After 20 mins place a saucepan on the smoker and add a stick of butter, 1 tablespoon rosemary, 1 tablespoon thyme, 2 cloves minced garlic and 1 tablespoon hot sauce. Melt it down and then baste your prime rib every 20 mins until an internal temp of 128 degrees.
- Once your internal temp reaches 128 degrees you can remove it and open all vents for a nice hot surface area. This will take about 10 - 15 mins. Now you can sear over direct hot coals for 1 min and 30 seconds per side. Make sure it's about 500-550 degrees surface area for searing.
- Let your prime rib rest for 20 mins at room temperature and slice into 1" steaks for serving.
