Smoked Prime Rib
Trim the fat off of the prime rib (optional)
Tie the prime rib up with butchers twine.
Season the prime rib liberally with kosher salt and put it into the refrigerator for at least one hour per pound but we recommend overnight for maximum flavor on the dry brine.
After the prime rib has dry brined, remove it from the refrigerator and season with PS Seasoning Chop Shop and Primetime seasonings
Let the prime rib sit out and come up in temperature for at least 1-2 hours.
Transfer to a cooking rack (optional)
Load the hopper on your pellet grill with Cookinpellets.com 100% Hickory Pellets
Fire up the pellet grill to 225º
Put the prime rib on the smoker and rotate the prime rib every 30-60 minutes for even cooking
After one hour put a probe in the center of the prime rib. If searing with a GrillBlazer, torch, or cast iron, set the internal temperature for 122 degrees. If you're going to sear on the pellet grill set your internal temperature for 110 degrees internal.
Once the smoked prime rib has reached 122 degrees internally sear with the GrillBlazer, torch, or cast iron. If using the pellet smoker to sear, once the prime rib has reached 110 degrees internal remove it from the smoker and let rest. While resting turn up the pellet smoker to as hot as it goes. Once the smoker is up to temp put the prime rib back in and cook until the desired doneness is reached. Please take into account that the prime rib roast will carry over in temperature during the cooking process anywhere from 5-10 degrees so be sure to monitor the internal temp and plan accordingly.
After searing, let the smoked prime rib rest for approximately 30 minutes.
After the prime rib has rested slice and enjoy!
