Serving Size: 1 serving

Nutrition Facts: calories 232 kcal, servingSize 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 8 lbs Whole Rib Roast (preferably with some nice fat marbling through it)
  • Seasoning mix or barbecue rub
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil or barbecue sauce
  • Black Pepper (to taste)
  • Salt (to taste)

Instruction:

  1. Preheat your grill to 225 degrees F.
  2. While the grill is warming up, prepare your roast. Trim any excess fat from the top of the roast down to 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Apply a coating of oil or barbeque sauce on the entire outside surface of the roast to give the seasoning a surface to stick to. Liberally apply the mix of half seasoning and half kosher salt, pepper, and garlic powder on all sides, including the ends.
  4. Place the roast on the grill and close the lid. Smoke until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 120 degrees F. As a general rule of thumb, the cooking time is around 35 minutes per pound of meat, at a temperature of 225 F.
  5. To achieve the desired result the temperature range is : 120-125 degrees F for rare and 130-135 F degrees for medium-rare bone-in roast.
  6. Remove from the heat and cover over with aluminum foil to let the meat rest for 20 minutes.
  7. While it’s resting, heat the grill up to 450-500 F, or whatever the highest temperature is on your grill. Coat with a bit of oil and place on the grill for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Remove your roast to the cutting board and let the meat rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
