Who pre-salts prime rib?

steakrules85 | Dec 22, 201107:56 AM     25

Making my prime rib for Christmas and was curious what the opinion is on pre-salting prime rib vs. applying the salt right before you place in the oven. Some say that applying salt too early (overnight) causes moisture to be drawn out of the meat.

I have made prime rib before and just salted and peppered 15-20 mins before putting in the oven and it comes out fine. Just looking for ways to improve and was curious if this would make any difference .. good or bad?
