I have two 4lb rib roast to cook at the same time. Would you recommend putting them in 2 separate ovens or both in the same?What would be the approximate cooking time if they are in the same oven?

It's fine to put them both in the same oven - so long as you do the following:

1. Have either two roasting pans, or one that's large enough so that the roasts don't touch each other.
2. Have two meat thermometers. There's no guarantee that your oven distributes heat evenly, nor that your roasts are exactly the same size.

Thank you for these posts. I have been wanting to attempt a rib roast for some time now. Hopefully next weekend (for my birthday), I will be successful. There will be a few family critics here to let me know how it turns out. One thought though, I have a meat thermometer that is a dial read (not flat like yours or digital either) I am hopeful it will be just as accurate.

I hope your roast turned out just as well as mine do! Let me know.

In my experience, the dial thermometers are often wildly inaccurate out of the box. However, you can calibrate them yourself, as I describe in the article - and there's often a little adjustment nut on the back.

Awesome post. I see the Big Green Egg mentioned above, but what would you think about doing this over a low and slow two zone fire in a Weber kettle? Too risky or not worth it? Thanks.

This is the second Christmas using this method. This year's roast is huge, 18 pounds, and I'm a little scared of it, but I'm sure the results will be just as awesome as last year. Thanks for all the great info.

No dog interference, we have 2 huge dogs, one almost 300 pounds, so I asked the butcher for the two biggest beef femurs he had. They are outside with them now, only way to get their big noses away from the oven.
