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

    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.
