Thawing a large prime rib roast?

I have a seven bone prime rib roast (about 20 lbs.) that is frozen solid and I need to thaw it. Any suggestions?
It is winter here if I put it out in my garage and controlled the air temp what temp do I need to keep it below.

Thaw it out in the refrigerator. It will take a couple days or more.

Yeah - what BangBang said ....

Figure about 24-hours for every 4 pounds (about 5-6 days).

Your refrigerator should be under 40 degrees F, but above freezing.

My refrigerator is set just above freezing. Meats just don't thaw out in it very well. To thaw your meat out in the fridge, I'd recoment a temperature setting of about 35 degrees F. Thopugh your cold water won't be as cold and refreshing.
