What is End Cut" Prime Rib??? [Moved from Manhattan board]
IIn my search for the best prime rib recs I have seen a few posts saying that the "end cut" prime rib at the Palm is supposedly the best. What exactly does this mean- end cut? I would think the better cuts would be more towards the middle of the rib roast. Please advise me. Thanks!!!!!!!!

The "end cut" is just that...the end of the roast. It'll be cooked more, and it usually is more heavily seasoned than a cut from the interior of the roast.
it has the somewhat "crusty" side (from exposure in the oven) that has a nice caramelized flavor. typically more well-done, usually the rarest is "medium." and it will have a higher seasoning level, just from volume of surface exposed to the rub.
