No dish signifies a special occasion — a holiday dinner or an important family meal — quite like a prime rib roast. And we have loads of prime rib recipes to choose from. Of course, most roasts referred to as prime rib are sold bone-in, which may explain why some prime rib recipes don't bother to specify whether you need a bone-in or boneless roast — bone-in is just assumed. But for those who are starting with a boneless roast, we've done a little legwork for you. We scoured every prime rib recipe we have to find recipes that specifically call for boneless prime rib, so you can feel sure your roast will come out just right on your special night.

This boneless prime rib recipe takes some time, but the flavor and moisture you get from smoking this choice cut of meat is absolutely worth it. Cut a few slits at the top of the roast to allow the marinade and smoke to penetrate the meat. You can also smoke the meat on a grill using hickory or pecan wood; when you do the reverse sear, simply turn the grill up to its highest temperature.
