Two hours should do the trick.

Lost me. Is it a prime rib or isn't it? Why would I know?


At any rate, I had a small prime rib roast, not even 3 lbs, and it took about six hours on the kitchen counter just to get it from refrigerator temp into the mid-sixties.

For many, "Prime rib" is the name for standing rib roast.. it's a very popular term..
EDIT: To quicken the process of bringing the meat to temperature, would it help if I double bagged it in glad zip lock bags, squeeze out excess air, and put it in warm (not boiling)water?

Yes, very popular. A standing rib roast is prime rib. Like a delmonico steak is a ribeye... is prime rib, lol. I didn't know you meant standing rib roast either. Not unless you mentioned it in another thread.

Can't help you on the water bath. I've never done that with meat, and certainly not thick meat, or a roast.

kookiblob, skip the water bath.

pacanis, the standing rib roast is a prime rib only if its prime grade. If it's choice grade, you can't call it prime rib...

Personally, I would not do that. I would prefer to insert the probe and put it into the preheated oven sooner rather than to try to raise the temp artificially. Your probe will tell you when you've achieved the optimum temp you're after.

So would you then call it "Choice Rib?"
