    It is a salt crust, as you may already know. My advice is to cook it a LITTLE LONGER than 15 minutes per pound at 550 in a V-rack over a drip pan. I cooked a 4-pounder for an hour, then let it rest for 15 minutes... and it was still very red. Don't get me wrong, I like my beef rare -- "just run that cow through a warm kitchen" is my motto -- but this was still as rare as steak tartare. My suggestion is to leave it on for 15 minutes per pound, and then add at least 15 minutes (but check it with a meat thermometer) to achieve the desired results. You will be very pleased with the salt-crust approach.

    I believe my good friend Dr Chicken (aka Dave Spence) has added one other ingredient to the salt crust recipe and that is one egg adds consistency to the crust...and for the "yoke intended!" just pitch it!
