Stir all ingredients together and chill for at least four hours or overnight to let flavors blend. Time to fire up the smoker or grill. Use the indirect method of cooking for a grill -- that is, build a fire on one side of the grill and cook on the "cool" side. The ideal temperature for smoking a prime rib is 265 degrees. Using an aluminum pan and grate, place the roast bone side down and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes per pound. A good meat thermometer is a must to reach the desired temperature of 130 degrees for rare, 140 degrees for medium rare and 150 degrees for medium. All meat continues to cook after being removed from grill -- remove roast 10 degrees before desired temperature. Let stand for 20 minutes loosely covered in foil. To make the au jus, pour out. most of the fat from the pan. Place the pan over heat and add one container of high- quality beef stock. Stir to release any brown bits in the pan. Add some red wine, to taste, if desired. Bring to boil and cook until stock is slightly reduced. After the meat has sat for 20 minutes, remove the string and slice to desired thickness. Serve with the au jus and horseradish sauce on the side. This is one meal that is sure tO be remembered for many holiday seasons to come. Come see us at our new Ranson store!
