    I put this the fridge to thaw. I figured I'd cook it to 130 then foil it, bring it to 160, unfoil it and pull around 170. Any suggestions?

    If that is a beef rib roast 170' is too high imho. I do them to 130' with a drip pan below with 3 cups of some beef stock and foil. They will be nice and rare.

    You can always micro a bit if you want it med rare with some aujus on the same plate to absorb the waves or you can reheat in some aujus on the stove top.Once over cooked you can't do much about it.

    Thanks ron, I'll try that. I love rare steak so that would probably be good. Any guesses how long that will take, 2.5 hrs or so at 225? Its about 4 pounds.

    I agree! 140* max on that baby! I would skip the micro though and just have a sauce pan on the stove with some aujus will cook it to everyones liking, though I like mine rare with some beaver super hot horseradish.......yeah baby. Have fun with that![​IMG]

    That is a start, time wise.

    In reheating with the micro I don't do it on full power, just do it at half power until it gets hot not cooked.

    I am with Piney on this one - don't over cook it 136 and tent
    Gotta have some good juices with it - Do it on the stove

    I'm getting hungry....the fridge is full of thawing meat, its gonna be a long wait for Sunday.

    About this cut, rib roast is pretty similar to prime rib?

    I'm no expert on what cut of meat is what; I'm still in the two category phase of my understanding of meat cuts; yummy and really yummy.

    Yes that is what it is.

    Rib roast is prime rib, except "prime" grade meat is only available to restaurants. The general public usually gets "choice" grade, its a USDA thing. That is why it is not labeled "Prime Rib"
  13. I'll bring the horseradish!!!!!![​IMG]
