Bought a boneless 6.7lb prime rib for Xmas Eve dinner tomorrow. Planning to eat around 5:30-6. But we have church at 3:30. Wondering if I can bring it to around 120 and then wrap in towel, put in cooler. Then "sear" in oven at 500 when we return. Is that the best strategy? Thx!

That should work just fine. Just double wrap it with HD foil, then with a heavy towel, and put it in a warm cooler.

I've held various meats like that for up to 4+ hours in the past with no problems.
 
Yes but pull it at a lower IT, 100, the foil/cooler holds heat and it will cruise up to 110. The 500 degree Oven will get a nice sear...BUT...There is a lot of carryover. My last roast went 25 degrees past the 125 I pulled the roast at. Plan on at least a 15 degree increase...JJ
