Standing Rib Roast aka Prime Rib is an amazing meal that takes minimal effort. It is highly unlikely you can go to your grocery store and buy a "Prime Rib" as you likely cannot find a prime cut but Standing Rib Roast is as amazing as any designated Prime Rib.

If you notice from the image above the Maverick Wireless Smoker Thermometer was used to prepare this Standing Rib Roast.

Ingredients

  • 1  standing rib roast (bone-in), preferably from the loin end
  • Canola oil
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper

To Dry age the Rib Roast

Place Rib Roast upright on pan or plate with a raised rack. Cover with a towel or cheese cloth for 3 days. Change the towel or cheese cloth every 24 hrs. Cover lightly do not wrap the cloth is designed to draw moisture away from the meet. Keep refrigerated during this 3 day process.

Remove Roast from refrigerator about 1-2 hrs prior to cooking. Set your smoker or Big Green Egg to 200 - 225. This is an indirect heat cooking process. Rub the roast with oil then cover with Kosher salt and pepper. About 1tsp of salt per bone in Rib Roast. Insert Maverick Wireless Smoker Thermometer probe. Set the temperature alert for 118. Cook time is about 25-30 min per pound.

Once you hit 118 remove the probe and switch to a high heat Digital Thermometer. Open the vents on the Big Green Egg and let the temperature rise to about 500 degrees. When the High Heat Digital Thermometer reaches 130 remove from heat and cover with foil shinny side in.

The temp will increase to about 140 after the cooking process. About 30 minutes. Cut and serve.

These tempertures are for a rare cook. Increase by about 5-7 degrees for medium. Keep in mind the center will be cooked to rare the outer pieces will be cooked more so you can accommodate a variety of different people

Standing Rib Roast or Prime Rib is best prepared when rare or medium do not try to cook to beyond medium or you will dry out the Rib Roast and given the price it is a waist of money.
