WalMart Prime Rib

WalMart Prime Rib

For this recipe I picked up a nice, boneless, 5lb Prime Rib Roast from WalMart for about $66… and I turned it into something that is worthy of that Holiday Table. I seasoned it with beefy flavors, garlic and onions and then smoked it on a pellet smoker with Hickory pellets until it was medium rare (120 internal).

WalMart Prime Rib


Smoked Prime Rib cooked with an herb-crust on the Pellet Smoker using Hickory Pellets.



  1. Prepare pellet grill for indirect smoking at 250°F using hickory pellets.
  2. Trim excess fat from prime rib roast and use butcher twine to secure the shape of the roast.
  3. Mix together Killer Hogs TX Brisket Rub, Chimi Churri, Garlic and Onion in a small bowl. 
  4. Drizzle the outside with olive oil for a binder. Season with a layer of Swine Life Prime Beef Rub. Then generously rub the outside of the prime rib roast with the TX Brisket seasoning mixture. 
  5. Place the prime rib on the smoker – use an internal meat probe to monitor internal temps. When temperature in the center of the roast reaches 120°F, remove from smoker and allow prime rib to rest for at least 20-30 minutes before slicing.
