Smoked Prime Rib for Christmas
I love serving smoked prime rib at Christmas time and the Traeger Lil' Texas Elite I received just a few weeks back is making it even more special with it's ability to smoke low and slow for a while then crank it up with the flick of a switch to add a little heat and finish it off right.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 hours
- Prime Rib or Standing Rib Roast
- Olive or vegetable oil
- Jeff's Texas Style Rub
Step 1: Prep the Prime Rib
Step 2: Oil and Seasoning
Step 3: Smoke Time
Setup your smoker for cooking at about 225°F
Apply light smoke for the entire time if possible or for at least 3 hours.
Monitor the temperature and when the temperature reaches about 135 °F, remove it from the smoker.
Tent foil over the top of the meat and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
Step 4: Slice and Serve
Cut the strings that are holding the roast and bones together.
Remove the rack of bones and set them aside.
Slice the roast into ½ to ¾ inch slices.
Serve to your guests and enjoy!
