So I'm going to smoke prime rib (standing rib roast) at our new year's eve party (there's only going to be 7-8 of us old farts). I've smoked a lot of stuff but never one of these, so I'm planning on doing one as a "test" on Christmas eve, for just 3 of us. Anyway, the local supermarket (Giant) has standing rib roasts, bone-in on sale this week for $5.99/lb. Seems like a good price for around here (I didn't realize how expensive these things were when I volunteered to make on on new year's eve...). So I ordered a 4 pounder to pick up on Friday to make for Christmas eve, and thought I'd order a bigger one for New Year's eve too since they're on sale. I'd pick it up Friday too, and bring it home and freeze it for a week or so. My question is, will freezing it mess up the taste or texture? am I better off just getting a fresh one the next week at whatever price they are? Costco has them for $7.99/lb, doesn't look like a sale, I'm guessing it's their regular price. Thanks.
