Grilling Tips for
Cooking Prime Rib

Cooking prime rib on the BBQ is easy when you follow these quick tips.

1. Most prime aged meat never makes it to grocery stores. So plan ahead and ask your butcher to order it for you.

2. If its bone-in, cut the meat from the bone along the ribs but leave it attached at its widest end. Then tie everything back together with butcher twine every two inches.

3. Let it rest on the counter 1 hour before grilling to bring it to room temperature.

4. Season according to your prime rib recipe or use ours (see other column).

How to Cook
Barbecue Prime Rib

1. Preheat the grill as follows:

Indirect heat, medium-high
(400 - 450 degrees F), grate on lowest setting, grill-safe drip pan

Indirect heat, (400 - 450 degrees F), light ash, 3 dozen coals on one half of grill, grate on lowest setting, grill-safe drip pan

2. Before grilling prime rib, lightly oil the grate. This prevents sticking and cracking which can cause your meat to dry out.

3. Place boneless prime rib fatty-side up (if bone-in, bone-side down) on a rimmed sheet pan and place it on the grill over direct heat. Cover, and cook for 30 minutes. This will sear the outside making for a rich flavorful crust and the sheet pan will collect the drippings and avoid flare-ups.

4. Remove the pan and transfer the drippings to a grill-safe drip pan. Place the meat right on the grill out of direct heat with the grill-safe drip pan beneath it. Close lid and reduce grilling temperature to 325 degrees F.

Grilling Tip:
If you're using charcoal, you can maintain the right temperature by checking your grill thermometer frequently, adding charcoal as necessary, and adjusting the grill vents accordingly: opening them up will increase cooking temperature while closing them decreases it.

5. Continue cooking prime rib on the grill (15 - 20 minutes per pound) until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 120 degrees F for a blood-red center, 130 degrees F for rosy-pink. Reserve drippings.

Grilling Tip:
You do not want to overcook prime rib. Don't guess. Use a meat thermometer.

6. After you've finished grilling prime rib on the bbq, remove it to a serving platter and tent it with foil. Let it rest 30 minutes before carving and serving.

7. Meanwhile use reserved drippings to make delicious au jus, Yorkshire pudding, or gravy to go with your barbecue prime rib (see our suggestions in the other column.)
