Delicious Prime Rib prepared in a Traeger Barbeque with Apple and Cherry Wood pellets.
Mix all spices in a bowl (except salt, pepper and seasoning salt), chopper or food processor to grind into a paste. Add oil and a little water so that the entire mixture will coat the meat.
Sprinkle salt pepper, seasoning salt and Montreal seasoning salt over the prime rib
Once you have added the spices, marinate in the refrigerator for 15 hours.
Take the prime rib out of the refrigerator and bring to room temperature, approximately 3 hours.
Smoke for approximately 45 minutes at 450°
Reduce temperature to 250° and continue smoking for 4 hours.
Once your prime rib is cooked to your desired preference, remove from smoker and let rest for about 30 minutes before you slice to serve.
The key to this recipe is to prepare the garlic and herbs and marinate the prime rib for 15 hours. Then be sure to let the meat sit for 3 hours to bring to room temperature before putting it in the smoker.
