One of the grocery stores here have prime rib on sale for $6.97 a pound. So I picked up 2 roast about 6 pounds each to cook later this winter. I love prime rib and have cooked it deferent ways. I've completely cooked them in the smoker. I have smoked them for a couple of hours then put them in the oven to finish cooking them. One of these roast I'm going to do them completely in the oven. The method I'm going to use is start the cooking the roast at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. This sears the out side of the roast and keeps the moisture in. Then complete the cooking at 325 degrees using a electronic thermometer that you leave in the roast while it cooks. It has an alarm that tells you your at the desired temperature you want. to be at for rare, medium etc. Does anyone have any suggestions on seasoning, rubs etc. I want to try something deferent and I would like to have a good crust on the outside of the roast.
