Letting them sit out ONE hour ... though it will be *better* than straight-from-fridge, one hour isn't enough. I agree with earlier posts, there'll be too much well-done and not enough pink in the middle.

I'm thinking ... four hours. Ok, at least three.

If you have time, YES trim, to 1/8" to 1/4" fat. THEN rub with salt. THEN sit for four hours.

That's what I would do.

Agreed.
