What's this?

There's nothing as impressive as golden brown salt and fat covered skin crackling on a huge cut of prime rib on the Traeger. You'll be tempted to lift that lid and just to gaze into its wonder.

Ingredients

  • 1 5-7 bone prime rib roast

  • As Needed Traeger Prime Rib Rub

Steps

  • 1

    Coat the roast evenly with the Traeger Prime Rib Rub and wrap in plastic wrap. Let sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  • 2

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 3

    Place the prime rib fat side up, directly on the grill grate and cook for 30 minutes. Starting at a higher heat will help to develop a crispy, rendered crust.
  • 4

    After 30 minutes, reduce the grill temperature to 300℉. Continue to cook 3 to 4 hours or until cooked to desired internal temperature, 120℉ for rare, 130℉ for medium rare, 140℉ for medium or 150℉ for well done. Begin checking the internal temperature in 30 minutes increments with an instant-read thermometer throughout the duration of the cook. Cook time will vary based on the size of your roast and desired finished temperature.
  • 5

    Remove from grill and let rest 30 minutes at room temperature before carving. Enjoy!
