Traeger Kitchen Recipes: Prime Rib Roast

Traeger Kitchen Recipes presents Prime Rib Roast. Prime rib is one of the finest cuts of beef you can buy. Also known as a standing rib roast, pellet grill prime rib is a great choice for an impressive holiday dinner.

There’s nothing as impressive as golden brown salt and fat covered skin crackling on a huge cut of prime rib on the Traeger. You’ll be tempted to lift that lid and just to gaze into its wonder.

Cook Time:

  2. When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  3. Place the prime rib fat side up, directly on the grill grate and cook for 30 minutes. Starting at a higher heat will help to develop a crispy, rendered crust.
  4. After 30 minutes, reduce the grill temperature to 300℉. Continue to cook 3 to 4 hours or until cooked to desired internal temperature, 120℉ for rare, 130℉ for medium rare, 140℉ for medium or 150℉ for well done. Begin checking the internal temperature in 30 minutes increments with an instant-read thermometer throughout the duration of the cook. Cook time will vary based on the size of your roast and desired finished temperature.
  5. Remove from grill and let rest 30 minutes at room temperature before carving. Enjoy!
