    Lucky you, Larry! I think the "cap", or "lip cut" is one of the most delicious muscles on a prime rib roast. I know some people trim them off, but I'm not one of them. Their generous marbling helps keep the rest of the roast moist as it cooks, and adds incomparable flavor. I have never tried to grill one separately, but can imagine it would be wonderful seasoned simply and grilled to medium-rare.
