The term "prime" in its name doesn't solely denote the meat grade but rather signifies its origin from the primal muscle. Prime grade is commonly found at high-quality butchers or larger retail warehouses. However, many grocery stores offer Choice or Select grade beef, which, while not labeled as "prime," can still be used interchangeably in most prime rib recipes. Regardless of grade, the cut's tenderness and marbling make it a sought-after choice for its rich flavor and succulent texture.What wood to smoke with?Oak or hickory wood serves as excellent choices for smoking prime rib due to their distinct flavors and burning characteristics. Oak offers a moderate, well-rounded smokiness that complements the beef without overpowering its natural taste. Its medium smoke intensity lends a delightful earthy aroma, enhancing the meat's flavors subtly. Similarly, hickory delivers a strong, robust smoke profile, infusing the prime rib with a bold, slightly sweet taste. Both woods provide consistent and steady heat, ensuring a slow, even smoke, imparting an appetizing essence to the meat while allowing the beef's inherent flavors to shine through, creating a delectable and aromatic smoked prime rib.
Preheat the Smoker: Fire up your preferred smoker and preheat it to 225°F, using Oak or Hickory wood for smoking.
Trim and Season: Combine olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, Blak BBQ Seasoning, and Texas Beef BBQ Rub in a small bowl. Rub the prime rib roast generously with the combined seasoning mixture evenly over the entire roast.
Smoke the Roast: Place the seasoned prime rib on the smoker’s grill grates. Close the lid and smoke the meat until it reaches an internal temperature of 120°F for Rare, 125°F for Medium Rare, or 130°F for Medium. The roast will take roughly 35-40 minutes per pund to reach the desired temperature.
Rest the Roast: Once the desired internal temperature is reached, take the roast off the smoker and transfer it to a cutting board. Cover the roast loosely with aluminum foil and let it rest for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, increase the temperature of your grill to 400°F.
Sear the Roast: Once the smoker reaches 400°F, return the rested prime rib roast to the smoker. Continue smoking until it reaches your preferred doneness: 130°F for Rare, 135°F for Medium Rare, or 140°F for Medium.
Rest and Serve: Remove the prime rib from the smoker and allow it to rest for an additional 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
