Newbie Question - Cooking Steaks
I have seen several methods for cooking steaks on the BGE. One method suggests searing at a high temp for 2 minutes per side and then shutting the bottom vent and daisy wheel down completely and cooking another 4 minutes approximately. I have tried this a couple of times and found the steak cooked perfectly but very smoky tasting. Smoke taste is almost overwhelming. I have also tried the TREX method and this worked well but I am some what impatient and want a faster turn around. I know patience is a virtue and good things come to those that wait.
What is the best way to get great steaks and quick turn around?
