Prime Rib is a luxury cut of beef. The worst possible thing to happen would be for you to overcook it. You won't have to worry about that with this recipe. When you serve The Best Prime Rib Ever off the grill, you will never go back to whatever way you were cooking it before. A beautiful crisp crust, meat grilled to the perfect medium rare, succulent, tender, fragrant. This will be the best Prime Rib you have ever had.

Ingredients

Directions

Step 1
Preheat your grill to super low, 275°F. It may be easier to do this on a charcoal grill and set things up with the coals banked to one side for indirect grilling. You may even consider adding some mesquite wood chunks or chips for extra flavor.
Step 2
Rub every inch of the prime rib with the salt and pepper. Set it over indirect heat, with the meat thermometer probe set in through the side of the meat and not touching bone.
Step 3
Grill the meat over indirect heat for about 40 minutes, or until the meat thermometer registers around 125°F.
Step 4
Set the prime rib to rest under some tin foil while you heat the grill to high, about 500°F. This will mean adding another load of charcoal if you are using your charcoal grill.
Step 5
Sear the meat over direct heat for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until the salt and pepper has formed a lovely crust and you have beautiful sear marks.
Step 6
You can serve this meal immediately because it has already been rested. Slice it against the grain from the end towards the bone.
Step 7
Serve this with a fully loaded, twice baked potato and some seasonal greens.

The Best Prime Rib Ever is definitely hard to mess up. Adding a little smoke in the beginning turned the flavor up from yummmm to HOLYWOW. The reverse sear method takes a little longer but is well worth the wait. With a thermometer and some patience, you really can't go wrong. The best part? This technique can be used on every cut of beef and pork imaginable for  delicious results. Have you tried the reverse sear method? Leave a comment telling us how it went. 

Happy Grilling!
