Regarding BBQ, Inc.
A delicious and convenient way to prepare a prime rib roast using your rotisserie unit.


  • 1 4-5 pounds bone-in rib roast
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 drip pan


Place prime rib roast onto a large cutting board. Combine seasoning ingredients and slather all over roast.

Prepare grill for rotisserie cooking following the instructions in the grill manual. Place the rib roast bone side down (if you are using a boneless rib roast just place it on its side). Lift the roast from the ends and rotate it to find its approximate center. Using a long, thin blade knife cut through the center end to end. Run the rotisserie skewer through the hole and loosely secure with the rotisserie forks. Place roast on grill and adjust to center. Tighten forks. Remove from grill and preheat to a high temperature. Place an aluminum drip pan under the space where the roast will sit

Using heat resistant gloves return roast to grill. Leave grill on high for 20 minutes, then reduce the temperature to medium low. Continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 120 degrees (140 degrees for medium done). Remove from grill and rotisserie rod, cover, and allow to rest for 20 to 30 minutes.

The total cooking time should between 3 to 4 hours depending upon the grill. It is important to monitor the internal temperature however. Make sure, when testing the temperature to stop the rotisserie motor and check in a place near the center of the roast but away from the rotisserie rod which will be very hot.
