5 Pound Boneless Prime Rib
Your favorite meat seasoning (we’ve listed one below to try if you don’t have one)
2 tbsp Tallow or butter for searing the roast
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried herbs of choice- optional
Simpe Meat Rub
Prep the meat
Bring your roast out at least 30 min before you plan to cook it to let it start coming to room temperature.
In a small bowl, combine the kosher salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried thyme. Mix the ingredients thoroughly until they are well combined.
- Rub the spice mixture evenly over the surface of your boneless bison rib roast. Be sure to coat all sides for maximum flavor.
Let the roast sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld and the meat to come to room temperature.
Cook the Meat
Preheat your smoker to 285 degrees fahrenheit. Then sprinkle your prime rib with the rub. Be sure to cover every inch of the prime rib with the seasonings.
- Place on the smoker and cook for about 3 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees.
Heat a cast iron skillet to high heat, melt the butter or tallow and sear each side of the cooked prime rib for about one minute. Allow the prime rib to rest off of the heat for about 10 minutes.
Slice against the grain and enjoy with your favorite sides.
