How to make prime rib on a gas grill

  • Place rib roast onto a large cutting board. Trim the fat cap to 1/4″ thick. Remove any loose pieced of meat.
  • Combine rub ingredients in a small bowl and thoroughly coat prime rib roast with mixture. Let meat stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Preheat your gas grill for a 325-degree indirect cook. Set a drip pan filled with 1 cup of water underneath the grates of the indirect side. Doing this will help catch the drippings for gravy. Refill pan with extra water as needed, about 1/2 cup at a time.
  • Place rib roast on the grates over the drip pan. Close lid and cook prime rib for 13-15 minutes per pound or 1 1/2-2 hours for medium-rare doneness. 
  • Rotate roast occasionally for even cooking. Once roast reaches an internal temperature of 125-130 degrees F (medium rare to medium), remove it and the drip pan from grill. Rest the prime rib for 25 minutes before carving.
  • Remove the bone section first, and carve the eye of the roast into 3/4″ thick slices.
  • Serve with smoked garlic sauce, horseradish, or blue cheese butter.

How do you pick a good prime rib roast?

Look for a well-marbled rib roast. USDA Prime is usually your best bet, but Choice can work too if obtained from a reputable source. If possible, look for grass-fed but grain-finished beef, Wagyu, or dry-aged.

Using the prime rib drippings

Strain the dripping contents to collect any herbs that may have separated during the cooking process. Use the strained liquid in your favorite recipe. It will have a concentrated flavor, so we recommend pairing it with low-sodium beef broth to make gravy.

Storing leftovers

Store leftover grilled prime rib in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Freeze for up to 2 months. Rewarm meat in a skillet over medium-low heat. Thaw frozen prime rib in the fridge overnight before rewarming it.
