Not smoking anything, just a meat question so I figured idaskthe pros! I'm doing a prime rib tomorrow in the oven. I've already decided I'm going to salt and pepper it tonight then tomorrow go 225 degrees until the roast is at 125 then pull it out, let it rest and let the oven preheat to 500 and finish it for about 10 minutes. My question is should I cook the roast covered with tinfoil until the sear portion of the process to prevent any drying or with the low temp is that not an issue?

I don't foil my roasts. The only way it will dry out is if you over cook it.

Not an issue and a dry exterior Browns easier than a moist steamed one...JJ

Okay that's the way I was leaning, but I've seen a pretty even amount of people doing both. Thanks guys!

Never foiled a roast here either.
