Smoked Standing Rib Roast

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Few things are better than a good Prime Rib. This standing rib roast is smoked for several hours and has the great flavor of the prime rib mixed with a mellow smokiness.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 1 4 to 6 pound standing rib roast
  • 1/2 cup cracked peppercorns
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic


Prepare smoker for a 3 hour smoke at 225 degree F. to 250 degree F. Take the roast and trim any lose fat, but leave all the attached fat. Rub with olive oil over the entire surface. Sprinkle with garlic and pepper making a heavy and even coating of the pepper. Place the roast in the smoker, fat side up and smoke until the thickest part reaches 125 degrees F. Should take about 2 to 3 hours.

Remove from smoker and loosely cover with aluminum foil. Let rest in a warm place for about 20 to 30 minutes. Carve and serve. This is a great one to carve right at the table.

Our Christmas Dinner 2007 - FABULOUS!, Member 7SlotFever

My husband found this recipe while looking for a way to grill the roast for Christmas dinner. It came out moist, tender and delicious. Our guests ranted and raved over it. Much to my chagrin, there wasn't a bite left on the platter when the meal was done. Not that it's a bad thing, but I was really looking forward to roast beast sandwiches this afternoon. If you follow the directions you won't go wrong with this recipe. We are sold on this one! Of course it really can't hurt to start with a great piece of meat. We buy ours at a local market in Lexington TN, A&M Seafood Market - yep, plug intended. If you do business with a good company, why not tell others where they can get the good stuff :)
