    Can anyone tell me if they have tried searing a prime rib on the grill before smoking ? I did this before by seasoning it the 12/24 hours before . Next morning rubbing it with olive oil and searing on a 500 degree grill on all sides then putting it in the smoker for a couple hours . Any suggestions would be appreciated ! Thanks !

    Yep, my vote would be the reverse sear.   Searing at the outset generally results in a fairly wide band of brown/grey over cooked edges of the Prime Rib.

    Similar to this:

    Doing a reverse sear would give you a similar crust on the outside, but with better edge to edge color and temp uniformity.

    I'm a reverse sear person. Have no real reason but it works well for me.
