If roasting elk racks whole, start by searing them on all sides to develop a flavorful crust, then move them to a 450 degree oven to roast until a few degrees short of your desired internal temperature (use a meat thermometer). Remove them from the oven, and let them rest (covered) for 15-20 minutes before carving and serving. During this time they will continue to cook the last few degrees due to residual heat.
