Costco Bone in Rib Roast Help

Ok so I bought a 7.5lb Costco Bone in Rib roast for Xmas dinner.  Here is the hitch, I am cooking it at home and transporting to my in-laws for dinner. 

Dinner is supposed to be at 6pm.  We are to arrive at 5pm for appetizers and social hour.  So I will be leaving my house at 4:40 pm ish. 

Am I crazy to be attempting this?  Should I just go grab a ham?  I really do not want to ruin this beef.  The timing is concerning me.

Any thoughts, suggestions?

Thanks !

    Cook to temp, wrap in foil. Cover with towels and stick in a cooler. It will stay piping hot for at least four hours. At least three layers of foil.

  • I put a few dry paver bricks in the egg and use them to keep everything nice and hot while in the cooler. Goid luck! Dont forget pics!

    I've kept rib roasts in foil in a cooler for up to 4 hours without issue.  Plan on it to rise 5 to 10 degrees in the cooler.

    I saw those today, but decided to wait.  Already had all the meals planned.  Never done a rib roast before.

    I just put in an alum pan & tent w/foil cools same but I would rather have warm rare beast than over cooked beast.
  • Thanks, Over cooking is my concern.  I am planning on pulling 7-8 degrees from desired.  
  • Roast BEAST! Followed third eye's standing rib roast method. 8lbs 234 degrees for 5 hours. Pulled at 122. FTC'd arrived at inlaws temp was 129. Shot it in the oven broiler briefly for bark on top. Amazing flavor, moisture, texture, and color. Also whipped up third eyes version of Au jus with drippings added. Easy cook with great results. Thanks for the help, Merry Christmas!
