Rib Roast -- Medium Rare to Well Done?

River Rat | Dec 20, 2006 11:36 PM

I have two questions for you experts:

(1) I have read many, many posts telling me what the temperature of the roast should be when taking it out of the oven to end up with medium rare. Problem is: they range from 110 - 135 F. What gives?

(2) I have to cook for a group that includes a couple who demand their meat be cooked to well done. While I think that is sacrilege, I can't just tell them they are idiots. Is there any way to cook a rib roast where part of it will be medium rare and another part of it well done?
