OMG! I tried this recipe this past weekend, and it came out wonderful!! I oversalted it a little, but it was still delicious! My smoke alarm went off. I suggest blowing a fan right at the detector so it doesn't go off. THIS RECIPE IS A KEEPER! Thank you for posting it!

This is my first time making the prime rib, and it is really amazing. Just like other reviews, the center is a little rare to our family, but at least no blood coming out. I will for sure use this recipe again.

Outside of all the smoke in the kitchen for the first 40 minutes, this worked perfectly, dead on medium as planned. I'll have a fan going next time.

I used this recipe for Christmas dinner. It was perfect. Even made another one a week later and cooked it a little closer to rare for prime rib dip. The way to perfection is having a meat thermometer that sets into the meat while cooking. I used one each time and was able to keep watch on it.

So I have used this recipe more than once and have never had a failure, EVER. I also have never cooked anything less than a 10 lb roast either, ;) Awarded Pami a medal, please do the same if you like this recipe!
