    Hi guys, I am new to this forum but have found lots of useful information so far!! I am planning on smoking a rib roast this weekend for about 12 ppl. I am trying to work up a dry rub that I can help season the meat without overpowering and ruining the taste.. Fresh cracked pepper and salt, some garlic immediately come to mind. But what are some other herbs that I should add in??

    We just coat it with olive oil then dust with Montreal Steak Seasoning.

    If want to keep it really simple just salt & pepper is good.

    Prime rib is such a good cut, you really don't need much seasoning.

    Other than what you have listed the only other thing I use on Prime Rib is Rosemary and sometimes I use it and other times not

    I've been using salt & fresh cracked pepper, granulated garlic and celery seeds (seeds not salt).  The celery seeds I think go great with beef.  It's a simple rub, but very flavorful.  Another thing I think is important -- buy good seasonings.  I buy high quality spices and herbs, and while it costs a bit more, to me it's worth it.  Just smell the difference between what you get in a grocery store, and what you get from a spice shop.  It's amazing.  You are cooking an excellent cut of meat -- it's worth a bit more to put quality seasonings on it.

    That is a great cut of meat.  Simpler is better.  We like salt, pepper, garlic and maybe some onion.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions!! I picked up a small roast last night as an experimental smoke for tonight, guest are coming Saturday.. I have it rubbed now with some chopped fresh garlic(pressed into the meat) then fresh cracked salt/pepper.. I caught the meat on sale for $5.99/pound, which I thought was super!! As far as spices go, yes I totally agree!! I try to use the fresh herbs and chop them myself even tho they cost more.. This is an awesome forum and I can't wait to post pics tonight!!

    Ok the test roast is on now and it smells delicious!! Water pan full of apple juice with a few cloves of garlic for some aroma..
    I am peeling golf ball sized white potatoes to be brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with rosemary and thyme. Those will be cooked in the smoker as well. And the lobster tails will go on last!! How do I upload the pictures from my phone onto this post?
