Prime Rib??

Need help, I have a 4lb Prime Rib, what do I do??  Would like Mediam Rare. 


  • 350 indirect until your reach about ten degrees below your desired internal temp, pull and let rest for about 20 minutes.  The carry over cooking should add about 10 degrees.  Slice and serve.  Medium rare is probably about 140 degrees.  Good luck!

    Here is the way I like to do them, with or without the bones they are great.

    My preference is to reverse sear rib roasts.

    I cook those 225 - 250 indirect until 120F, then do a sear - shoot for a final temp after the rise of 130.  Salt and pepper rub, no smoke. 
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    I'm in the low&slow camp-around 250 on the dome, indirect for about 20-25 mins/# til the finish temp.  Just rub with kosher salt, fresh ground pepper and some rosemary.  Turns out great every time-and the required supervision is nil-the necessary escape supervision-to the max :)
