Cooking for 10 people


  • 10 lb 4-bone prime rib roast, trimmed
  • a generous amount of coarse steak rub
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 sprigs rosemary

1 Food Prep

  • Trim any hard fat and silver skin off.

  • Trim off the bones by following the curve and tie back on for easy removal after cooking (if your butcher hasn’t done this already).

  • Tie up the prime rib for even cooking.

  • Generously rub every inch of the meat and bones with the coarse rub and dry brine in the fridge overnight or at least 1 hour.

  • In a bowl, mix up the paste with softened butter, mayo, Dijon, soy sauce, Worcestershire, garlic and herbs.

  • Rub the prime rib all over with the paste.

2 Grill Prep

3 The Cook

  • Insert a temperature probe to keep an eye on the internal temperature.

  • Place the prime rib on the pellet grill and cook for around 30–40 minutes per pound or until the prime rib reaches an internal temperature of 120°F.

  • Rest the meat for 30 minutes.

  • Place back on the pellet grill at 500°F for a quick 5–7 minute sear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the ingredients for this I read through this recipe and love the wet ingredients for the roast. It would bring great flavor to the rib roast I may used those same ingredients on other steaks and roasts

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice BUT.... I like just about everything that I've used this recipe for except that the dry rub is too vague.The beef (or pork or chicken) can work against some dry rubs depending on the amout of salt and sugar. You can easily ruin a great piece of meat with too much of iether of thse ingrediants. LESS CAN BE MORE!
