I just use salt and pepper, occasionally with garlic powder.
I just spent $12 K on this Honda Accord! Why can't it tow my boat?!?

I just did my first one this week.  I used salt, pepper, garlic, and mccormick montreal steak seasoning.

Add a second vote for Montreal Steak Seasoning.

The primary ingredients in MSS are salt, black papper, and garlic.  Probably what you'd want in a home made rub anyway.

If you're looking for a source for rub recipes, you might take a look at Sauces, Rubs, and Marinades, Bastes, Butters, and Glazes by Steven Raichlen.  Your library probably has a copy, or about $10 at Amazon.  Raichlen's Basic Rub is my go-to choice for pork ribs.  And I'm betting that he has a pretty good beef rub, too.

Gotta wonder why anyone would want to mask the flavor of the best cut of beef there is with anything other than a bit of salt and pepper and maybe a touch of garlic. I've tried lots of other combinations and maintain that the taste of the beef itself is best enhanced by minimal interference.  Just sayin'.

I cut some small slits in the meat and put garlic slivers in them, then just kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and maybe a little freshly chopped rosemary.

Gotta admit however that I've never done a prime rib in my smoker. I roast using the "start real hot to get a sear, then lower the temp" method. Mostly because I like to make Yorkshire puddings with the drippings.

This is generally what I use for prime rib, top loin, steaks and brisket:
2 Parts Morton Kosher Salt
2 Parts Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
1 Part Granulated Garlic
.5 Part Dried Thyme Leaves (optional)
.5 Part Dried Rosemary Leaves; coarsely ground (optional)


     I
         don't
                   inhale.
