    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 !

    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!
