Crusty Garlic Spiced Prime Rib

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by CountryLady

Although expensive, prime rib is one of the juiciest & most tender cuts of beef - ideal for BBQing over indirect heat. The spice rub takes almost no time to prepare & adds a zesty touch!

My prime rib was 2lbs. I grilled indirect at 300 degrees for 55min. to an internal temp. of 125 degrees with a 15min rest period. I was looking for med-rare & it was just a little too rare for us. Next time I will try internal temp of 130 degrees. Marinaded for 24hrs. as recommended. The crust was not overpowering & tasted great. I have another prime rib in the freezer & will be using this recipe again. Thank you CountryLady
