With all due respect, medium rare is not IMO 140 degrees, that's medium.
Medium rare is 130.
Rare is 120.

My first smoked Prime Rib was absolutely incredible. 200 degrees with .3oz of Pecan and .5 oz of Apple wood did the trick. I used a dry rub of *Montreal Steak. Brisket next week....

That sounds about right to me but my wife thinks you could put a Band Aid on a piece of meat at 120F and it would start living again. :p

Don't know what to tell you. Spend top dollar for a Rib Roast and overcook it... YIKES
I will just say that my daughter-in-law told me many years ago that her mom cooked all meat the same way.... WELL DONE
She started dating my son, and they naturally ate dinner with us on occasion. I cooked the steak rare like I always did and they ate "prime rib" as well. Now she understands tender meat and not so tender meat, and rare prime rib is scrumptious and pot roast is savory. She never knew what the various "cuts" where supposed to be like... and most people younger than forty just plain don't know how to cook......ANYTHING.
Let's start a new thread called... "dumb questions on how to cook various things, asked at the grocer" ...like head cabbage, bok choy cabbage, short ribs, fish (all kinds, geez) brussels, asparagus, etc.

I didn't do the prime rib yet but I did something close last night. I picked up a bone in rib eye that was about 3 inches thick. Threw on some coarse salt, fresh gound pepper and that's it. Set my 1400 @ 200F and pulled the meat out at 140F internal temp. I used light smoke and light salt/pepper so I did not overpower the tase of the meat. I also threw in some whole red potatoes that I rubbed with olive oil. I used about 2 ounces of apple. It was amazing!!!!!!

I love doing bone in rib eyes in my 1400. I usually pull them out right at 100 and then throw them on the hot grill to get a good sear and satisfy different people's desires for different levels of "doneness". So far smoking to about 100 degrees seems to provide enough smoke.

For prime rib, or most beef for that matter, I like to use oak pieces from a red wine cask. Really gives it a nice, hearty flavor.

Sorry guys...I like mesquite or hickery...I love the taste of the smoke to add to the beef. And I agree with David....throw them on a hot grill and finish.

What has been your experience with smoking Prime Rib as far as getting a good crust on the surface? I noticed some posters just smoked their roast and one pulled it off at low temp and seared on the grill to finish. I'm doing a boneless Prime Rib for the first time but I've done tri-tip roasts and they needed searing after smoking because they only took about 1 1/2 hours and looked like brown shoe leather on the outside when they hit my desired interal temp of 125. Would a longer/lower or shorter/higher smoke with my Prime Rib develop a crust or should I plan on firing up the grill to finish? I usually do my tri- tips at 230.

I did my first prime rib on the smoker for New Year's Eve, bone-in. I did the reverse sear method- I did about 4 hours at 250F until I got about 125F internal temp. I let it rest for about an hour, then put it in a 500F oven for about 10 minutes- got a nice crust, and was perfect medium rare inside. Yum!
