Dads Mouthwatering Prime Rib! You know it's good when your wife tells you to make because that's what she craves! No doubt you will be a winner with this recipe...

  • Prep: 35 mins
  • Cook: 3 hrs 30 mins
  • 35 mins

    3 hrs 30 mins

    4 hrs 5 mins

  • Yields: 8-10 Servings


While you are preparing the rub (if not done the day before) and other prep steps I leave the roast out on the counter to get closer to room temp so it cooks thoroughly and evenly. 30 mins to an hour.


Combine them all together (I have no precise measurements for this, I just eyeball it) Black Pepper, Sea Salt , Garlic powder, Rosemary , Paprika, Lemon pepper , Italian seasoning, Chipotle powder

Coat the cut ends in bacon grease or butter to help seal them and prevent them drying out

Prep for roast:

Using a paring knife I make small punctures into the roast to make finger tip size wholes. You will use this to either put regular garlic cloves choped in half or what I like to do is buy elephant garlic and cut it into spears and shove that in there. Generously coat the outside of the roast with the seasoning.

(These two steps can be done the night before if desired to save time on cooking day)


Preheat the oven to 250 and cook it for a longer period of time.

You can do a quicker cook by putting the roast in a super hot over to brown it then turn it down to the 325 range but I prefer the longer cook method. Depends on how much time you have really. Longer cooking time at lower temp rewards with super juicy meat.

Depending on how you want the roast cooked you should shoot for the following internal temps (Note that the internal temp will continue to rise after you take the meat out)

115 - Rare

125 - Medium Rare (suggest this temp)

135 Medium

Once you get the internal temp to the right heat, take it out and let it rest while you prepare the Au Jus out of all the delicious drippings from the roast!

*Note I don't time my cooking, I let the meat say when its done!* Usually takes ~2.5 - 3 hours roughly (I used the @iGrill Thermometer from Weber, works awesome)

I have to thank my nephew @meatgician for this one! Too Damn Good not to Steal!!!
