I am planning to buy a standing rib roast for the holidays. I priced it at Whole Foods yesterday and, while I often defend WF prices, $15.99 lb (NOT organic either) seemed really high. Then again, I'm not much of a meat cook so I don't know what to expect with regard to price or quality. I'm wondering what experiences others have had with area meat departments (i.e.Costco, Fairway, Stop 'n Shop, Shoprite etc).
Also, if anyone has any advice on buying and cooking a rib roast, I'd appreciate it.
