    He is probably shoveling snow to get to his eggs.
    When I hot tub I make sure they are well wrapped and toss them into the spa @101F for 45-60 minutes. Steaks usually come out around 85F.
    This allows me to cook 500-550F and sear the outside and the inside is partially to temp from the spa. Others place in a container with tap hot water around 105F or so and leave in container for an hour or so changing the water a few times to keep to temp.

    Richard, is the intenetion to get the steak partially cooked in the center so that all ya gotta do is sear the external to finish it up?
  • Richard FlRichard Fl Posts: 8,238
    The goal is to have the internal temp of the meat around 85 or so rather than 45-65 from frig to counter for an hour or so. When you cook the steak you then do not have to leave it in the fire longer to get the internal temp up to 125-130 wherever you want it.
    IMHO this helps keep the steak from drying out when cooking.
    Recently I have been doing them on a Himalayan salt block and very moist meat results; beef, pork, lamb, scallops and even chix breasts.

    Yes, it did snow in the mountains. Been raining all afternoon and night and only 48°. It sure is green out here and ought to set us up for some wild fires in the late summer or fall (if those ever get here).

    Hot-tubbing steak, never tried it.

    Sorry I've never hot-gubb'd a steak before.

    I would think there are some information in the forum recipe section and plenty with a search on the forum.

    And, Richard has you covered in h8is response.
