      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.

      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.
