Anybody doing a Rib Roast for Christmas?

I lucked into a prime rib roast that a friend ordered by mistake. She thought she was buying the rib roast that was on sale, but asked the butcher for a 4 bone prime rib. She ended up with a 10 pound prime rib roast that came in right at $200. So she decided to have a dinner party and invited my wife and myself over. I volunteered to cook the roast, I mean, how many times do you get to play with a $200 piece of meat?

Here are some pics:

Thanks! I cooked it on a Traeger pellet grill with hickory pellets.

That's pretty much the way we do ours. Cooked one last night and it came out great. Put on the rub several hours ahead of time, let it sit out of the fridge for about an hour to warm up a little, then 200F for 30-40 minutes a pound (mine was 128 degrees when I pulled it out), let rest, crank up the oven while it's resting then stick it in to crisp up the outside. Easy-peasy and perfect roast. We were too busy stuffing our faces to take any pictures.

I was surprised how brown the roast got the first time I tried the torch first method. You just jump start the browning process with the torch, then cook at a low temp till it is done.

I season mine the day before and let it sit uncovered. I preheat the oven as high as it will go first thing in the morning for about and hour, the roast sits out getting to room temp, then place the roast in the oven about 30 minutes and then turn it off until dinner time. perfect crust, juicy mid-rare all the way through.

I have heard about that method, about how long does it need to sit in the oven?

I used to cook my prime rib in the bread proofing box at work. 125 degrees over night. The best, prime rib ever.

About 8 hours. Don't open the oven.

Son, is the 8 hours the total cooking time, or the 'leave it' time after the initial 1/2 hour blast? Also, you indicate letting it come to room temp first. For a 3-rib roast, that would take quite a few hours. Do you really start at room temp all the way through the roast, or just give it an hour or so on the counter before putting it in the over? TIA!

not actual room temp, just let it sit for an hour outside. Mind you this is a 12 to 15lb roast. 8 hours total cooking time. If you are doing something smaller check after 5 hours and if you need to add heat go to a low setting (less than 200 degrees )and wait, do not crank it up as you may over cook it and I'll look like an idiot.lol
