Smoked Prime Rib is the Rolls Royce of fancy holiday meats, and it’s easier to cook than you think.
Don’t be scared of tackling this sensational piece of beef! I promise you’re going to love my recipe for smoked prime rib with a savory herbed butter crust. And you’d better believe that it’s PERFECT medium rare on the inside, too!
Some recipe notes & tips:
If you don’t have access to a smoker, you can absolutely do this recipe in the oven and still have fantastic results.
as a bonus – since the prime rib rests before the final heat blast, it’s ready to carve and eat right away.
ask your butcher for an “easy carve” prime rib, where they will cut off the bones, then tie them back on, so you’ll get all the presentation ‘wow’ without having to hack at the meat after cooking.
The one crucial piece of equipment you’ll need to ensure a perfect medium rare is a quality meat thermometer.
