Smoked Prime Rib on a Gas Grill

When it comes to prime rib, can you cook it on a traditional gas grill and still get tender medium-rare slices filled with flavor? Yes.

And with a few easy tricks, this smoked prime rib on a gas grill just may be the easiest way to cook the traditional holiday roast.


– Prime rib roast – Salt – Olive Oil – Mustard – Girl Carnivore Ooomami Umami Powder – Garlic Junkie – Cowboy Crust – Rosemary – Horseradish


Remove the Prime Rib from packaging and pat dry. If there is excess fat on the outside, consider trimming it off now, leaving a layer at least ¼” thick.

Score the prime rib fat cap by running a knife gently along the fat, pressing about ¼” in and then rotating the roast and making a cross hatch pattern by running the knife again perpendicular to your previous cut.

Season the beef liberally with salt on all sides.

Place the roast on a wire rack sitting on a rimmed baking sheet in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours.

Mix the Olive oil, mustard, umami powder, 1 tablespoon Garlic Junkie and Cowboy Crust (or steak seasoning) in a small bowl.
