Smoking a prime rib for Christmas Eve and wondering what to do with it while at church. if I bring it up to 130, foil it and wrap it in a towel and cooler it for a couple hours, is that ok? After church I'll throw it in a 500 degree oven and crust it up. Is this possible?

I usually do my prime rib in single rib slabs - they normally only take about 2 1/4 hours.  As a matter of fact, my prime rib is seasoned and resting in the fridge at this writing :-)

A whole prime rib (3 or 4 bone) takes roughly 4 to 6 hours (been a long time - please verify) at normal smoking times of 225-250F.  

Search for prime rib up above - top right.  There are a ton of threads about this.

It's about 6 lbs. I smoke them at 225, bring it up to 135 pull, set on stove tented in foil until oven heats to 500. Put in oven for about 7 minutes, pull it out and slice and serve. I've never had to leave one "sit" for any amount of time. I've got a pretty good idea when it'll be finished, but it'll probably be a couple of hours until I'm able to get back from church to serve it. Just curious as to what others have done in situation. Everyone have a Merry Christmas!

Wrap it in several layers of foil. A towel and place it in a cooler. It will hold temp for up to four hours.
