Attempting prime rib
 
Well wife dropped 120.00 on a 10# hunk of prime rib for Xmas dinner. How long will it take to smoke to medium rare? Just need a rough idea so can plan the rest of the food. Hell of a time to try something new lol

Depends on the Smoker Temp you use.
I like to use 220 the whole time.
This gives me nice Pink meat from Bark to Bark.

My Small 5 to 6 pounders usually take about 4 1/2 hours, so your 10 pounder should only take about 5 hours if you use 220 Smoker Temp:

So only an extra hr for almost twice the meat?

For a Prime Rib, you go by Thickness.

Your 10 pounder isn't much thicker than my 6 pounder.

The only reason a 10 pounder might take a half hour to 45 minutes longer is because of all the cold meat in the beginning of the smoke. Once that warms up it's no different than a 5 or 6 pounder.

Sounds good thanks for the input

Having followed Bear's cooking manifestos several times, I would say you will be good to go.

For a bit of insurance, preheat a cooler with boiling water, drain and rest that bad boy for a bit. If you have a wired temp probe, you can leave it in the roast in the cooler to monitor. The cooler will also give you some breathing room to get the other sides and such ready.
