May want to try this for Father's Day .
If I am cooking the prime rib of about 5-8 # 's with reverse sear and cooking indirect around 250-275 before the sear, approx how much time once it is first put on indirect until the sear at the end is done ?

    For the initial cook to 115 before sear, figure about 25-30 mins/lb. Rest foiled. Go to 500 degrees direct for sear of about 2 mins a side. Just did that last night. Turned out great!

    Below is a great read on prime rib cooks.  Check it out when you have time.

    If you get a chance - read this:

    A #5 cooks in the same time as an #8 or #10 if they have the same cross section. The length, number of ribs, is not the significant issue. 
    Cook as low as you can maintain, 225-250 for the indirect. Watch the smoke, I use only the smoke from the lump most of the time. The game changer for me was taking the ribs off, tie the roast to make it circular. I also take the cap off.
