Oh wow.... I have not attempted a whole ribeye.

I would be tempted to slice it into steaks, smoke it then grill them :)

All a whole ribeye is, is a boneless prime rib. You are better off buying a prime rib with the bone in. it costs less and the bone will give it more flavor and will help keep moisture in. I have done both and that was the results I found.

As a whole boneless rib eye is fairly large I'd cut it in half. Unless you're feeding an army.
Many times I cut enough steaks off to get the roast down to the size i need.
I've posted some pics around here somewhere.
