Prime Rib - what to cook on?

When cooking Prime Rib - would I just put the meat directly on the grill rack (just like cooking pork butt)

I was thinking I would put it in a roasting pan but the mad max recipe just shows the placesetter - drip pan and mean directly on the rack!



  • I put mine on the grid with plate setter and drip pan underneath. I followed drbbq's video exactly, and it turned out wonderful.

    Dripping Springs, Texas.
    Just west of Austintatious

  • if the roast you have has the bones on, the bones act as their own rack. ..even if its boneless, the side where the bones are has a layer of fat/sinew that protects the meat. .. just lay that side right on the grid over the plate setter with a drip pan on the plate setter.. .that is more than a sufficient heat barrier....

    that being said, if you want it in a roasting pan with thick cut veggies, you can certianly go that route too. . .but certainly not neccessary. .. .
  • doc bbq has a great video there ...
