My 1st Prime Rib | LSG 20″ Offset Smoker

At the last second, I decided to smoke my first prime rib ever for Christmas dinner. The amount of clearance in the top grate of my LSG presented some challenges, but overall it worked like a charm & everyone agreed that the prime rib turned out great! I smoked it to 135 degrees internal, let it rest for 1 hour and I found out why everyone loves prime rib at the holidays!

Happy New Year everyone!

12 lb Prime Rib (ideal for 5 people)
Olive Oil
Killer Hogs AP Rub
Killer Hogs Hot Rub
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Minced Garlic

1) Prepare smoker or grill for indirect cooking at 225 – 275 degrees, use hickory wood for flavor.

2) Trim excess fat and sinew from prime rib and tie with butcher string to hold shape during cooking.

3) Drizzle the outside with olive oil, season with AP Rub and Hot Rub.

4) In a small bowl combine herbs with steak seasoning; apply in a layer to outside of prime rib.

5) Place the prime rib on the smoker and cook until internal temperature reaches 135 (or your desired temp for doneness)
