Rub, Roast, Rest, then Relish. Salt encrusts the Prime Rib to flavor & tenderize until extraordinary.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups Jacobsen Kosher Salt
  • 3/4 cup Black Pepper, Coarsely Ground
  • 1 head Garlic, Peeled
  • 1/2 cup Rosemary
  • 2 Tbsp. Chili Powder
  • 3/4 cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 qty. 15 to 16 lb. (6 bones) Prime Rib Roast
  • 1-1/2 cups Jacobsen Kosher Salt
  • 3/4 cup Black Pepper, Coarsely Ground
  • 1 head Garlic, Peeled
  • 1/2 cup Rosemary
  • 2 Tbsp. Chili Powder
  • 3/4 cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 qty. 15 to 16 lb. (6 bones) Prime Rib Roast

Preparation

In a food processor, combine the salt, pepper, garlic cloves, rosemary and chile powder and process until fine. Add the olive oil and pulse to form a paste.

Place the prime rib roast on a cutting board, bone-side up and rub with 1 tablespoon of the salt paste.

Transfer the meat to a large roasting pan and pack the salt paste all over the fatty surface, pressing to help it adhere. Let the prime rib stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke, lid open, until a fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Increase the temperature to 450°F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Roast the prime rib for 1 hour, or until the crust is slightly darkened. Lower the Traeger temperature to 300°F and roast for about 2 hours and 15 minutes longer, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast (not touching the bone) registers 135°F.

Transfer the roast to a large carving board and let the meat rest for 30 minutes.

Carefully lift the salt crust off the meat and transfer to a bowl. Brush away any excess salt.

To remove the roast in one piece while keeping the rib rack intact, run a long sharp carving knife along the bones, using them as your guide. Leave on 1/2 inch of meat, more if reserving for leftovers.

Carve the prime rib roast 1/2 inch thick and serve, passing some of the crumbled salt crust as a condiment.
