Seasoned with simple herbs, then smoked and roasted to perfection on the Traeger, this winning prime rib recipe delivers every single time.


1 (8 to 10 lb) prime rib Roast (5 ribs)

5 tbsp kosher salt

5 tbsp ground black pepper

3 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped

3 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped


When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 250℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

While grill preheats, trim excess fat off roast. Combine remainder of ingredients and coat the entire roast with the mixture.

Place roast on grill and cook until the internal temperature reaches 125℉. Pull roast off the grill and allow to rest for 20 minutes.

While roast rests, increase grill temperature to High and preheat. Once the grill is heated, place the roast back on for 15 minutes, flipping half way through.

Remove roast from grill and allow to rest before slicing. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
