One year anniversary with the egg! so I am doing Prime Rib.

Following recipe on NAKED WHIZ - cooking indirect until internal temp is 125

    For rare, about 20 minutes per pound

    Don't go by time but by internal temperature. Someone here on the Forum would have that answer.

    Good luck and enjoy !

    Sorry about that. I didn't read YOUR post but the one after. My stupid.
  • Check out and watch the video. It depends what internal temp you want.

    I am trying to get the internal temp at 125 and just want an estimate so I know what time to appox start the cook!

    20 min a lb seem kinda fast but for now Ill go by that unless I hear different - this means by 4 lbs prime rib will be done in 1 hour 20 minutes!
