Huge Bone in Rib Eye — Reverse Sear?

You betcha!  

Between 3-4 inches of bone-in ribeye goodness, bought with a gift certificate to Meat House (a chain butcher, I believe, and not my go-to).

Hit it with s&p fortified with a bit of Holy Cow and cooked it indirect at 250 grid to 125 internal. Too much IT for my taste — I’d have pulled it at 115, but we had a special guest over and SWMBO thought I’d scare him off with my ultra rare-eating ways. Was still good, if a bit over for my carnivorous tastes. 

It took much longer to get to temp than I had thought (and SWMBO had planned ... oops). Put it on mid 2nd quarter thinking we’d eat toward the end of 1/2 time. Ended up searing it in the 4th, just before Alshon Jeffery took the air out of the Eagles balloon and the Nick Foles Magic.  We ate well anyway. 

It's a 302 thing . . .

    Great cook and finish.  I'm sure your special guest was very impressed.  Money shot for the win-congrats.

    I agree, I would have pulled earlier. Then stuck the guest's portion in the microwave! I have had to do that for Ynette - she can't stand the bloody reds. But if i were there, I sure would have eaten and enjoyed that!

    Besides a similarly huge porterhouse, this is my favorite cut of beef.
