      Season the roast liberally with salt, pepper and Traeger Prime Rib Rub. Using a paring knife, make 10 to 15 slits in the roast every 1 inch or so. Insert a garlic clove into each slit.
    • 3

      Place the roast directly on the grill grate and cook for about 1 hour, flipping halfway through until browned well.

      Remove the roast from the grill and transfer to a deep Dutch oven. Pour the beef broth over the roast. Cover tightly with foil and place back on the grill. Reduce the grill temperature to 300°F and cook the roast for 3 to 4 hours or until it is fork tender.
