a lot of prople on here will say use apple or cherry. Which is good on beef but me personaly I would go with a hickory apple mix. The apple willl give a sweet taste and the hickory will add some depth to the meat.

Oak if you want a smoke flavor, hickory or pecan if you want a nutty flavor.

I agree with Bryan. I like a light oak smoke on a rib roast.

The best one I've ever had was done with mesquite, and no, it wasn't bitter at all.

I like a mix of oak and cherry, but just my preference. Bet yours will be great no matter what you choose. Love prime rib!

I use the heavier smoke, as the beef really does not want to asborb fruit woods..a nice marbled roast will handle it and cook it hot...real hot

I've always been very happy with oak. Beef really seems to like it. I also like mesquite a lot, but that is precious here.

French Oak Wine barrel staves are the best smoke for Prime Rib/Ribeye roasts.

Maple Mojobricks aren't bad either.

Now that is how prime rib should look.

Swamprb do you mind telling me how you cook your prime ribs?

Did mine last year with mesquite. LOVED it. Of course, I really like mesquite with beef. Oak ain't too bad either. If you can find some Jack Daniel's barrel stave chunks it would be even better. (I've been known to pay the exhorbitant cost for their little briquette bags just to get those chunks...)
