Prime Rib

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Can anyone tell me if they have tried searing a prime rib on the grill before smoking ? I did this before by seasoning it the 12/24 hours before . Next morning rubbing it with olive oil and searing on a 500 degree grill on all sides then putting it in the smoker for a couple hours . Any suggestions would be appreciated ! Thanks !

What you've described will work fine. A reverse sear, however, might work as well or perhaps even better. Check this thread out http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/154985/smokin-it-prime-rib-for-christmas

 

Oh, and welcome aboard.

Yep, my vote would be the reverse sear.   Searing at the outset generally results in a fairly wide band of brown/grey over cooked edges of the Prime Rib.

 

Similar to this:

 

 

 

Doing a reverse sear would give you a similar crust on the outside, but with better edge to edge color and temp uniformity.

I'm a reverse sear person. Have no real reason but it works well for me.
