This recipe, shared with us by Ryan Sanderson, makes a juicy, tender prime rib, slow cooked on the BBQ rotisserie. You can use another cut, like the sirloin tip roast pictured here.

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook time: 12-14 min / pound

Yield: varies


  • Prime rib or other beef roast, such as sirloin tip (pictured above)

For the herb paste:
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh oregano

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary

  • 4 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 1/2 tbsp seasoning salt

  • 1 tbsp fresh ground black pepper


  1. Blend all the herb paste ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.

  2. Spread rub evenly over the entire surface of the roast. Wrap your roast securely in butcher twine to ensure it holds together, and assemble on your rotisserie.

  3. Heat the BBQ to 325F, leaving one side turned off. You'll attach the rotisserie with the meat over the unlit side (if you have three burners, light two and leave one off). You may need to remove the grill below, depending on the size of your BBQ and how low your roast sits. If there's room, add a small foil pan to catch any drippings (there won't be much, if any).

  4. Roast for approx. 12 - 14 minutes per pound of meat. We recommend using a thermometer and roasting until the internal temp reaches 145F for medium rare. I set a timer to check the temp every 20 mins, and my 3lb sirloin tip roast was beautifully roasted after cooking for 40 mins and resting another 10 mins (pictured above).

Zhuzh it up!

  • Hot tip from Ryan: if you can, make extra rub and freeze it for later. It's a great way to use up fresh herbs before they wilt.
