"May I have that big @$$ steak, please?"

Mrs. 500 said that's a big @$$ steak. I told that's what I asked for at the Fresh Market meat counter. I'll let y'all know how it turns out. Now resting with kosher salt, cracked black, and some DP Raising the Steaks. A bottle of Zin is opening up as well.

    Awesome. Raising the steaks is the best. That's caveman stuff. Looks like a 2" cut maybe? You gonna carve it off the bone and serve family style?

    Wife saw me take a tape measure to the steak and said, "You're measuring your meat again." Yep. It's an 1 1/4". Porterhouse was on sale today, $10/#.

  • Oh 500, round these parts a steak isn't considered large unless it is at least 2 1/2 inches.  It does look awesome, hope the cook goes/went well.

    True.  I exaggerated about the size of my meat.  Again.

    those were Choice from Whole Foods. Special occasion ha. Normally I just get from local grocery store. The ones you have look great and I promise better than the chicken I had for dinner.

    That's a weed burner, or a big @$$ lighter. The steak was pretty good. 8 minutes on direct at 650*. Rest for 5-10 minutes. It's tough getting both the filet side and the strip side to get to 125* at the same time. The filet was over by 10* I think. Overall, it was good, but not my best effort. And the InZINerator vino matched very well with it. Here are the money shots. A little shaky on the iPhone camera shots. Hard to get a good picture.

    Yeah, the filet side can cook fast.  I try to get the sirloin side over the hotter coals.  Looks good!  We at out tonight - biked around town and ate an insane French dinner at Cafe Degas in Mid City.  Pate board, seared brussel sprout Gorgonzola salad,  pan fried monk fish wrapped in prosciutto over cous cous.

    Appreciate the comments and tips. Did the bacon wrapped cheese stuffed Knockwurst tonight, but they were very pic worthy. I pushed them a little and the bacon and knock charred up some. No leftovers though, so I did something right.
