I'm doing a prime rib also Christmas day--a small one :) Anyway, I saw on this website 8-10 minutes a pound. I think the key is to not overcook it. I'm cooking mine until the center of the meat is about 130-135 degrees, which should be sort of medium rare. Let us know how yours came out.

I will let you know....but mine is not gonna be med or med rare...more like medium and I read in several magazines and books....20 minutes per pound....it is 10 LBS so I am thinking 3 hours...I have never had a problem with my grill everything has always turned out awesome.....

Did about an 7# prime rib roast. I used my Companion. I used Carolina seasoning & let the roast sit out for 4-5 hours at room temp. It took it 2 hours to get to 125 degrees in the middle & turned out great.

Sorry to see your note so late. Hope it came out really well for you. For what it's worth, there are many "best" ways to cook a standing rib roast. Nobody is an expert though many will say they are. You just have to read, test, and be willing to try a number of methods. A 10 lb is a great size to roast. Less than about 8 creates many additional variables. No matter what, you need a thermometer. You can go low and slow, about 325 for maybe 17 minutes/lb, so about 3 hours. The only thing you may miss there is a nice, lightly crisp and richly browned exterior you get with a sear. I prefer a high heat first, 450 for the first 30 minutes, then lower to 325 for about 12 minutes/lb. I think you'll find this a really juicy roast that maintains all its natural flavors. Remember, you also don't want any gray around the inside outer edge; should be a nice pink all the way to the edge. If you try another, give the high heat first method a shot. Oh, if I may suggest, NEVER put any kind of horseradish cream sauce on your roast -- that is usually provided at some restaurants as a way to hide overcooked meat. A nicely cooked rib roast needs no sauce. You are paying for a primal cuts, the best flavor, so don't hide it.
