Prime Rib roast off!

For over 20 years, I've served a Prime Rib roast for Christmas Dinner. I live in Wall, and originally, we bought our roast from a place in Bay Head that is no longer in business. We've purchased from two different butchers in Spring Lake,and were satisfied for many years, until about 4 years ago. Then we went to Wegmans and to our local A&P. This year, I was very satisfied with our A&P roast, but my husband claims that he remembers previous beef that was more tender.We used to pay a whole lot more. I suggested a taste test. Does anyone have a butcher that they can suggest, so that we can compare (not on an important holiday) and see if we truly are missing out? I want to cook two different roasts on the same day, and see if we really know what we're talking about.

    1. I cooked one from A&P this year and it came out great

      1. igrove, for your taste test try this:

        Go to a costco/BJs type joint and get a rib roast in a sealed cryo bag. (some supermarkets have them also)

        Bring it home and let it sit in your fridge for 2-3 weeks.

        It should have NO issues with tenderness...
