Cook Time
30 mins


  • 2 lbs beef prime rib roast
  • 10 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsps Salt
  • 2 tsps ground black pepper
  • 2 tsps Pit Boss Grills Chop House Steak Rub


  • Meat Thermometer

Suggested Pellet Flavors

  • Competition Blend


Grill Preparation

Check, clean and correctly re-seat the burn grate. Before placing anything on the grill, generously oil the cooking grids, using a cloth and vegetable oil.

*DO NOT use a spray oil, as this does have the potential to flame.*

Preheat the grill then increase the temperature to 400°F.  


Cooking Directions

1. Rub roast garlic, salt, pepper and some Pit Boss Chop House Steak Rub.

2. Insert meat thermometer sideways into the center of the roast so that the shaft is not visible, avoiding fat and bone.

3. Cook in a closed grill, maintaining constant heat, until the thermometer reads 145°F(63°C) for medium-rare for about 50 minutes, or cook until desired doneness.

4. Remove roast to cutting board; tent with foil for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes and asparagus on the side.
