I'm curious first to know how many of you do something other than the traditional turkey or ham at Christmas? Each year I learn a lot prowling around online and starting discussions like this.
As a retired butcher, my interest in holiday centerpieces is still very much alive, and I've written a number of articles on these for my website MeatShop101.com . I've also added a pretty detailed writeup on the Beef Standing Rib Roast  and cooking methods. Feel free to visit and let me know what you think!
All the Best & Happy Holidays!
