How to Smoke a Prime Rib Roast

Step 2: Setup your smoker for indirect cooking at 250° F.

Step 3: Smoke for about 3 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches a target pull temp of 118° F, for medium-rare (the temp will continue to rise as it rests).

Step 4: Pull the roast out of the smoker and rest for 30 minutes while you heat your grill to high.

Step 5: Sear on all sides for about 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Step 6: Slice and serve.
