Cut my own ribeye

I want to go to BJ's and get a big hunk of meat to be able to cut my own ribeye steaks. Which piece of meat do I want to buy? Is it just called the ribeye primal or is there another name?

You want a rib roast.....sometimes incorrectly called a "prime rib"

Can I come to dinner, GB?

Around here a big hunk of meat that you can cut several steaks or chops out of is called a loin; as in pork loin, strip loin and ribeye loin. I couldn't tell you what BJs calls it, but you'll know it when you see it. A ribeye loin is typically around 15-18 lbs.
Most stores, again, around here, will cut it for free and even package it for you, but I prefer doing it myself. If you've never cut up a loin before, stick it in the freezer for a while. It will cut a lot easier and be less messy with the "juices" You want it to reach that semi-frozen state.

Why would he want boneless UB? The bone is my favorite part of a rib eye steak.

It think BJ's calls it a whole boneless ribeye. If not, the terminology should be fairly easy to decipher.

oh man, a rib eye steak without a bone is nearly as bad as an egg without a yolk.
