Well everyone reading this, I'm needing a little help deciding what to do. For the last several years I have been in charge of smoking different stuff for the holidays. Thanksgiving is always a turkey and Xmas has always been ham. Well this year we decided on prime rib. Since this isn't a cheap piece of meat I've been doing extensive research but there just aren't many recipes out there for smoking one. I'm planning on pulling it at 125-130 then rest. Am I on the right track? Also there will be about 6 people over for this meal. Will a 7-8lb be big enough or do I need to go bigger?

I cooked my first prime to 130 and it was over done. I'd pull it earlier than that, like 120 and rest it, temp will continue to rise for a bit, that was my mistake. prime should never be more than medium rare.

Since you mention cost, I thought I'd throw this out there.

I'd smoke to 110* - 115*, let it rest while you bring the pit up to searing temp, and then sear it to 128* - 130*, and then let it rest again before slicing.

The best prime rib I've ever eaten was cooked in one of those electric rotisseries. I have not cooked one myself.

+1, pull it at 120 and the temp will continue to rise to 125-130 for a nice medium.

Definitely following this as this will be the Christmas Day meal and I have never smoked a PR either. Roasted several, never smoked one.

My daughter surprised me by requesting a brisket for Christmas Eve dinner where we have friends over. Raise up a child in the way they should go....
