Prime rib question

 I just ordered a 10 # prime rib roast to be ready on Sunday, cooking on Monday. Have a few questions about set up and cook.

Was thinking 250 indirect on a V-rack, till IT of 135ish....

Any other better suggestions, or tips? How much time should I allow?

Thanks -Adam

    Only have done one boneless before. I'd go 350 indirect till 135

    Reverse sear works well. I've gone from 250 to 325 and in between. All about the same so I just adjust temp based on my estimated target cooking time. Enjoy!

    Doing one Sunday. Planning 275 indirect to 115' then rest while Egg heats up to 500 plus, then a reverse sear for a minute or two per side. One of my favorite cooks.

    The following may be about the best prime rib and BGE info site going-you will exposed to all you need:

    beyond that tutorial-you can choose to reverse sear or other options.  Enjoy the cook-as long as you hit the finish-line temp all is well.

    I did this exact cook at Christmas. Based on advice here it turned out very well. I did a reverse sear. I set out the meat for at least an hour before cooking and gave it a heavy rub.

    I cooked it at ~250 until internal temp of 105. That seemed low but it works. Then I removed the meat onto a platter tented with foil and put indoors. I cranked up the Egg to >450. Then I put the meat back on for some direct searing, just a couple of minutes per side to get a crust. After resting in foil for at least 15 minutes, the internal temp reached 130-135 and it was perfect.

    Hey, Jerold.. Am doing a four bone prime rib this weekend.  I usually cook low/slow, indirect to internal of +/- 120, then finish direct to 127internal, then rest... approx.  I think I'll try your 105F, then crank it up and sear longer.  I think the bark will be better using your temp...thanks.

    Reverse sear like TJ mentions above. Key is use a rub paste. It draws some of the surface fat and provides a nice crust for the sear. Don't sear too hot, it is not a steak it is a roast. I prefer bone off, tie the roast to create a more circular, even cooking chunk of meat. Remember a 2 rib size cooks just as fast as a 4 rib size - it is the thickness of the meat not the length. 
    No V rack needed, right on the felt level indirect grid. Use a drip pan, although you will not get much drip, but makes for a faster cleanup. 
    Good luck!

    Don't know what the v rack would do. Just make sure that you have a drip pan with some spacers under it to capture the semi liquid gold.

    Reverse sear works incredibly well
