Kick the turkey to the curb, prime rib is here to be the star of the show this holiday! Juicy, tender, barky, and smoky, this Hasty Bake smoked roast is sure to become the new holiday favorite.
Standing Rib Roast (3 – 5 lbs)
Salt/Pepper Based Rub
Kitchen Bouquet Browning Sauce
Prepare a 250-275 degree charcoal fire and smoking wood chunks of your choice (oak or pecan recommended).
Slather the roast with Kitchen Bouquet, which will cause it to brown beautifully when cooked. With a heavy hand, season heavily with your rub – its a large piece of meat that can handle alot of seasoning. Let roast sit for 30-45 mins. Place on indirect heat and smoke until the internal temp is 110-115 degrees. Remove from grill and let rest for 10-15 mins while stoking fire and raising temp as hot as possible. Place roast back on hot grill for around 60 seconds per side, rotating until a dark crust forms and all surfaces are seared. Remove and rest for an additional 10-15 mins, slice and serve. This should yield a medium-rare roast. If your guests prefer a slightly more medium roast, take the initial internal temperature to 120 degrees and follow the subsequent steps.
