Prime rib has always been among the most coveted items on the grill. Aside from its being rather large enough to fill anyone, it's more tender, moist and juicy than any other cuts. This cut is so popular that restaurants make it as a specialty, making a nice steak out of it. It is also excellent for an outdoor grill item. 

The popular misconception people have with prime rib is that it's difficult to cook. This however is not true; grilling prime rib is much like grilling other cuts of meat and will just need similar processes or techniques of grilling. Anybody who has barbecued other cuts of meat before will be able to produce a great prime rib on the first try.

Choose The Cut

A common trouble for prime rib is that after grilling, plenty them will get too tough, chewy and dry. This is due to the tenderness of a cut of the meat itself and that is why it is crucial for you to learn how to select the perfect cut. When choosing, pick a cut that has a fine marble of fat, not a lot but just right. The fat adds tenderness to the meat and  also adds a good taste; too much of it will not make it taste good.

When you can not encounter this at your favorite shop, then don't hesitate to ask anybody around. Prime rib is far too basic for a good food store. Sometimes, the people around can even help you select from several different meats and may offer many helpful advices that you can actually use.

Food Storage Tips

Once you have your prime rib home, you may store it at room temperature as long as you'll grill it that very same day. The common mistake people tend to make is to immediately toss it inside the refrigerator, believing that it might spoil at once. This is not true. You can put it in the refrigerator only if you won't use it the same day.

Once inside the refrigerator though, be sure that you don't keep the meat for too long. It's best if you will consume it within 3 days. Items long stored inside the refrigerator tend to lose flavor and tenderness. You do not want this to happen to your prime rib.

Preparing the Prime Rib

 You can marinate it first for at least 20-30 minutes then toss it into the grill. Take note that grilling prime rib is just simple. You can brush some barbecue sauce on the surface and there you have it, your cut of prime rib is set to be served and savored by everybody.
