Made a 5lb rib roast and it was VERY good.. Also made asparagus, baked potatoes and a warm goat cheese salad...All were Awesome

I did a low and slow indirect at about 250 til rib roast was about 110F and then seared on a spider and CI grid.. tented in foil til about 130 then sliced.. Used Dizzy Pig Cow Lick this time ad it was good!

    Wonderful looking meal Jerry! It's been too long since I've cooked a rib roast.

    I like mine Rare to Medium Rare and that is perfect. My wife on the hand likes it more Medium. Can't please them all. LOL

    Great cook !

    I think you are right - it is one of my favorite cooks and if done with care, very easy too!

    I like mine on the Rare side of Med Rare myself, but like you I have a wife that doesn't.... What I found is that you can sear one of the end pieces just a touch longer than the other side... And the end pieces are more done too..

    Thanks for the complement....

    Hi Steve,

    It was the talk of the house last night....Just the family so we had a bit left over - which was great too.!!
  • RU EggsperiencedRU Eggsperienced Posts: 1,526
    I mentioned above that for some reason the Rib Roasts are on sale here.. I live in the ATL area. So the time is right!
  • RU EggsperiencedRU Eggsperienced Posts: 1,526
    Thanks!! I used one of my really nice lenses in that photo..

    Eggzelent indeed! A feast at your house for looks like 3 bones - how many did this roast serve? Would love to try one soon. ;)

    Hi Elizabeth,


    Very easy cook and well worth doing...

    The 5lb roast served 5 people (2 kids and 3 adults). We had nice appetizers, wine and salads before so a bit left over.. Still the leftovers are great and I like a bigger piece so you can have good MR/Rare in the center and still have some approaching Med on the sides... I think we could have fed two more adults..

    Jerry, next time save me a big slice so that I can make a sandwich from your leftovers! :laugh: Mmmmmmm, that is a nice prime rib roast! :)
  • RU EggsperiencedRU Eggsperienced Posts: 1,526
    If you were driving all the way from Dayton to get a slice of my Rib Roast - you are on! We are in ATL area..

    Anyway - Thanks for the complement!
