they also would like prime rib!! I haven't done one before so any tips there would be welcomed as well!!

Thanks for the help!!

    Do the prime rib at 250* until about 10 * below your desired finish. If you are big on searing you can take it off, open the vents and do a quick sear at 500* plus. Prime rib is always my daughter's request too but she wants it so she can have Yorkshire pudding.

    Haven't tried ersters before.  Little Steven has you covered on the prime rib.  It's an easy cook.  IMO- the only thing to watch out for is not to over cook it.  If you go with a reverse sear like Steven described- let the meat rest first so the temp stops rising, then throw it on.  

    Here is another useful link that describes :

    This is another video from Dr BBQ that describes a simple "cook it until it is done" process:

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I thought I saw a recipe for Dragos grilled oysters somewhere. Its a resto in NOLA and their oysters are incredible. I'll post a link if I can find it.
