    Cooking Prime Rib

    I'm cooking a 12 lb. prime rib in the oven tomorrow and wondering if anyone has any advice. I'm planning to go with the method described here:

    The Food Lab: How to Cook a Perfect Prime Rib | Serious Eats

    Basically cook it low and slow, then rest, then finish at high temp for 10 minutes or so to get the outside presentable.

    This will be my first attempt, so any advice is appreciated.

    And, yes, I know it's technically a rib eye roast and not prime rib since it's not prime grade.

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    I've always done it just the opposite. Cook at very high temp (550 degrees) for 5 or 6 minutes then, shut the oven off, leave it in the oven for 2 hours, but do not under any circumstances, open the oven.

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    I grilled a 15lb ribeye loin a couple weeks ago. Cooked it at 350 and it took less than 3 hours. Everywhere I read said it would take much longer than that, even at temps higher than 350. I like prime rib no more than medium rare, and at 350 for 3 hours it was to overcooked for me.

    Cooking at 225 should supposedly get me to medium rare in 4 hours or less. It seems to me like it should take longer, but I'm no expert.

    But I'd rather have it undercooked than overcooked which is why I like this method. It seems like it wouldn't be possible to overcook it at such a low temperature unless you're completely negligent.

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    Just keep an eye on the temp, and take it off 15 or so degrees before your preferred temp. For sure have it undercooked than overcooked.

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    We do it about the same, 500 tho, but i think for 30 min. Make sure its about room temp when starting. I think we re hear like another poster says before serving, letting it sit tho also.

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    I'm cooking one on a green egg tomorrow. Will cook at 250 until center temp is 115, then crank the egg up to 500 to sear and shut the egg down. Take it off when center temp is 125. Wrap in foil till temp is 135. It apparently continues to cook. Then slice.

    This will be my first try, so I'll see how it goes.

    I do this with a lot of smoked meats, and then I'll throw them in a clean, empty cooler after that.

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    When cooking prime rib just buy a digital thermometer for it. We are cooking a 21lber today. We use the 500 degree method.

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    Yep, get a digital thermometer and set it for 125 in the center. Also, this will make the best Prime Rib you've ever had:

    Re: Cooking Prime Rib

    The best prime rib I every had was at a Colony in SD. They cooked it for 20 hours in an oven set at 135 degrees. Came out a perfect meidum rare and was so tender you did not need a knife to cut. Most ovens cannot not cook at 135 degrees.
