  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup ground black pepper
  • 16-8 lbs pound prime rib roast
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  • Combine the salt and pepper in a small bowl. Season the entire roast with the salt and pepper mixture, pressing down to adhere.
  • Preheat a pellet smoker to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the roast bone-side down in a roasting pan and set it inside the smoker.
  • Smoke the roast until the internal temperature reaches your preferred level of doneness. For medium-rare, aim for 125 degrees Fahrenheit, which will take about 5 hours.
  • Remove the roast. To sear the outer layer further, increase the smoker’s temperature to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and continue to smoke the roast for another 5–10 minutes.
  • Transfer the finished roast to a cutting board and let it rest for 20 minutes.
  • Using a sharp knife, remove the bone from the roast and carve the meat into ½-inch slices.
