  • To everyone who responded to my post: Thank You.   I have had problems with my Austin Egghead log in (finally fixed this AM).  To post this cook I created the Austin2Egghead, which for some reason no comments were allowed on that account.  I was not ignoring anyone who posted a comment, just caught in some sort of internet SNAFU of total frustration.

    LDD here is how I cooked the meat:
    The cut was about 2.5 in.  I  bought a roast at Costco and cut into 2-1in steaks and this was leftover.  i really don't cook with temp and time I cook by looks and feel.  When I see the moisture start to come up on the uncooked side that is when I turn it.  (I think I was pretty close to 550 on the mini...probably no more that 3-4 minutes for that cut.  
    Shut down I raised steak up above the felt and that was probably another 5-6 minutes.  I temp'd the steak when I took it off the egg.  I like rare, adjust cook time for desired doneness

    This cooking method works best on the mini.  The mini comes to temp really quick and losses temp pretty quick, so the above cooking method is ideal for the mini.
