This will make for a very delicious Christmas dinner. Sorry I am posting so late. There is always New Years Day lol

Smoked Prime Rib With Peach-Chipotle Sauce - Serves 10

1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup chunky peach preserves
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 chili sauce, such as Heinz
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup plus 1 tsp. kosher salt
2 TB. molasses
2 TB. rice vinegar
1/2 tsp. chipotle chile powder
1 28 oz. can whole, peeled tomatoes, crushed by hand
1/4 cup ground black pepper
2 tsp. cayenne
1 7-rib prime rib roast (about 16-18 lb.) untrimmed

Whisk together sugar, 1/2 cup peach preserves, ketchup, chili sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire, 1 tsp. salt, molasses, chile powder, and tomatoes in a 4 qt. saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook, stirring, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree, pour into a bowl and stir in remaining preserves; chill.

Prepare your grill. Combine remaining salt with pepper and cayenne in a bowl, and rub over prime rib. Place prime rib, fat side up, on grill grate. Maintaining a temperature of 225 -275, cook until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 130 4 1/2-5 hours for medium rare. Remove prime rib from grill and let rest, loosely covered with foil, for 20 minutes before slicing. Serve with sauce on the side.

Sounds tasty. I use a similar sauce on pork quite often. The sweet and heat is nice.
