Prime Rib for the Family

Ok.  I have a 6 bone prime rib coming from my local butcher on Monday for Xmas.  Need some advice. The normal people are getting it medium rare, but many of my family are fans of medium and, gag, well done.  

My thought is to break it into three, 2 bone sections, pulling each at 125, 135, and 145.  Then, FTC and drive them home (1 hour commute).  When I get back, either torch them with the Benzo or toss in the oven.  Thoughts?


  • IMO Best be it cook to rare and then you can just dip the pieces that are too rare for you guests in a pot of hot Au jus and all that pinkness is gone.

    Break it into 2 portions.  Cook both to MR center (which will end up being M ends) and let the bozo's that want hockey pucks finish your beautiful dish in the microwave.  1 hr FTC is fine.  Merry Christmas.

    One of the nice things about rib roast is the spectrum of doneness it provides for the varying tastes of your guests. My experience is the center will be med rare then as it goes out it’ll get to medium and the end pieces are usually medium well usually covers what anyone would want
