Standing Rib Roast cook time....?

I have a 20lb standing rib roast that im going to cut into two 10lb pieces to have 2 separate rubs on. Im going to go the 225-250 degree route and sear at the end. My question is approximately how long of a cook time will it take to get them to 118 before the sear? Unlike pulled pork or brisket i cant really throw this in a cooler for hours and i do not want to keep my guests waiting for it to finish or eating overcooked roast. Any help would be appreciated


  • I think Thirdeye put up a post on the other forum that gave cooking times for all sizes of rib roast. As a guess I would say 4 1/2 hours without knowing the thickness. Do it at 250*

    Perfect timing on this post as others I am going to be cooking an 8.5# Prime Rib tomorrow. This is the first time that I have done this in any fashion.

    Posts from Thirdeye are always great.
