Default 4.4 lb Rib roast

Need to get this roast done soon Hoping today is the day. Need suggestions on cooking. Father in law loves prime rib and I promised him one and didn't get to cook it on Saturday. Based on research here...

Ultimate goal is a medium rare to medium max 140 center. Thinking of reverse sear on the egg indirect with plate setter at "270" grate temperature till internal of 125-128. Foil will bringing egg up to 500 for direct sear forming crust. Then rest for 30-45 minutes.

Just wondering on how much residual cooking I should expect while waiting for egg to climb. 4-5 degrees? Then how long sear and what residual heat to get to final 140. Guessing no matter what it needs to come off totally before 135 for final rest.

Father in law likes medium minimum. Figure the outer edges will be nice for him while closer to the middle will be more medium to medium rare.

Should I have rubbed this thing last night? Or will with rub before cook be enough?

Any problems with my plan? Thanks to all.
