Smoked Prime Rib with Brown Butter Garlic Sauce
Level: Intermediate
Total: 3 hr 40 min (includes smoking time)
Active: 40 min
Yield: 4 to 6 servings


Smoked Prime Rib:

2 tablespoons granulated garlic
2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons mustard powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
One 6- to 7-pound bone-in prime rib
3 sprigs fresh oregano
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 sprigs fresh thyme
3 tablespoons canola oil

Brown Butter Garlic Sauce:

1/4 cup minced garlic
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 shallots, minced
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup low-sodium beef broth
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon demi-glace


Special equipment: a charcoal kettle-style grill; charcoal; 8 cups large smoking wood chips (applewood and hickory mix), soaked in water; butcher’s twine

For the prime rib: Heat the charcoal until hot, then carefully arrange on one side of a kettle-style grill, and place the soaked wood chips over the hot coals. Place an aluminum pan filled with some water opposite to the coals to catch any drippings. Place a wire rack on the grill. Cover the grill to allow the smoke to accumulate and preheat to about 225 degrees F.

In a small bowl, add the granulated garlic, black pepper, salt, mustard powder, paprika and cayenne, and mix well. Rub the spice mixture all over the prime rib, then set aside. Combine the oregano, rosemary and thyme and tie together with butcher’s twine. In a large cast-iron pan set over medium-high heat, add the oil. Rub the oil all over the pan using the herb bundle, then set aside. Place the prime rib fat-side down in the pan and sear until browned, 7 to 8 minutes. Flip over and sear the other side until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn on its end and sear for 2 minutes.

Place the prime rib on the grill over the aluminum pan, with the thick end facing the coals. Place the lid on the grill. Smoke the prime rib until the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F for medium-rare, 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours.

Remove the prime rib to a baking sheet and set aside to rest.

For the sauce: In a medium saute pan set over medium-high heat, add the garlic, parsley, black pepper, rosemary, thyme, salt, shallots and butter. Cook, stirring continuously, until the butter foams and the garlic turns a light golden color, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the broth, Worcestershire and demi-glace. Stir to combine, and cook until the sauce reduces by one-third, remove from the heat and set aside.

If the chine bone has been removed, slice the prime rib into generous 1-bone portions. Otherwise, slice off the bone and cut into generous portions, and then place on a platter. Spoon the sauce over the top, and serve.

Cook’s Note

This recipe can be made in an oven if you do not have a charcoal kettle-style grill. Skip the instructions for the charcoal and wood chips, and continue as directed.

  1. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today

  2. Guy you are the Grill Master. Love Prime Rib and the sauce sounds amazing. Happy 4th of July everybody.

  3. "Oh… Brown butter, bam a lam!
    Oh… Brown butter bam a lam!

    Brown butter had a child…
    Bam a lam..
    That damn thing got garlic!"

  4. Chef, I much prefer doing the reverse sear method. Is there any reason not to sear after smoking, rather than before smoking? Can I still get the herb flavor into the sear when doing it after?

  5. I don't know about searing the prime rib before smoking it. You want the seasonings to caramelize doing the smoking and it doesn't make sense to sear then smoke such a prized cut of meat

  6. I've been chasing a prime rib dragon for almost a decade. Worked at a BBQ joint that would smoke prime rib once a month and the line would be out the door. Best meals I've had and I have yet to find a prime that matches it.

  7. Despite the economic downturn,I'm so happy☺️. I have been earning $ 60,000 returns from my $7,000 investment every 13days.

  8. All of that looked good, in theory, but PERSONALLY, I can't eat raw meat. Whatever I eat has to be VERY well done….everything else looks like a must-add

  9. One small positive thought can change your whole life, the fact that you are reading this means you’re already halfway there ✨

    God bless you, may your dreams come true, stay safe and have a wonderful day. 🙌

    I beleive in you!

  10. Why would you sear the meat after a seasoning rub? Just burned it to heck.

  11. Whoever's reading this, i pray that whatever you're going through gets better and whatever you're struggling with or worrying about is going to be fine and that everyone has a fantastic day! Amen
