Every time I have ever roasted anything in an oven, I have always (without fail) used a meat thermometer. I have had great success preparing prime rib in the past, and predictably have always used my trusty meat thermometer.
I tried this recipe because of the rave reviews. I am now a huge fan!! This method is magic – trust it – use it. I did not use a meat thermometer and the roast was perfect. The thought of putting this kind of money in an oven with no back-up was a serious stretch for me but like I said this is magic. I always wondered how restaurants were able to prepare prime rib so consistently great all the time – now I know.
I was a bit afraid of the butter because of the reported smoke issues, so I used a bit of oil with my herbs. There was still smoke (and smoke alarms). I realized I should have used the range vent on low to take care of this issue (duh) – next time I use butter.
