  Ahh yes. holiday time when prime rib is on sale. I prepared a 6 pounder today. This cut had better marbling than previous purchases. I also cut the bone "almost" free, and bound the roast with butchers twine. I apllied a light amount of EVOO, and then some garlic salt and fresh cracked pepper. Smoked over apple, let it rest a few, and we chowed down!! The family has voted this one the best prime rib so far :) The beagle had some meat as well, and enjoyed gnawing on what little was left on the bones :)

I am trying my first prime rib for xmas eve.

What were the details? How did you get the outside to crust over? temp, time???

Thanks for any info!
I did nothing special to the outside. I applied a very thin amount of Extra Virgin Olive oil, and then garlic salt and cracked pepper. Smoker temp ran around 230F, ocasionally reaching 245F. it took about 4 1/2 hours for this 5 pounder to hit 140F internal. I let it rest in foil for about 15 minutes, and then we chowed down :) is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
