    Prime Rib, however, would be our first choice as well. ;)

    Going out could mean to a friends house too? Just not cooking at home?

    I went to the butcher and pre-ordered a full 'small' (7 bone) prime rib. The butcher is going to trim the fat, loosen the bones, then tie it all together. The bones should pull out nice and easy after I remove the roast from the EGG, then I'll slice it down as if it were a boneless prime rib from the get go. I never had it prepped this way before so it should be interesting.

    I'll have to go to your site and vote.
    I'm usually unusual. :huh: That is, I don't often go with the flow but with what I want. This Christmas I will cook duck one day and lamb another. I'm thinking rack of lamb...lamb prime rib??? :ohmy: :silly:

    Making that relief cut on the bones is a good idea, plus you can add seasoning between them and the roast...but you might want to mention to the butcher that you are cooking this on an Egg, and to not trim the fat too close. One of the reasons that some restaurant primes are so good is that they the whole section and cooked with the fat cap intact.

    That is always a good choice, and one of Mrs ~t~'s favorites. Don't forget to pull the membrane, it's still a rib afterall.
