The steaks turned out great. Upon reading the tread below, I need to find some of this char-broil stuff I guess. Where can I get it? Also, I am cooking some steaks again for New Years Day for some buddy's. The strips are about 3/4 inch thick. Do I still cook between 600 & 700 degrees? If so, then how long? Thanks in advance. You guys are great.

    Hog Euker,[p]Char Crust is what you need. You should be able to find it at at supermarkets that consider themselves "gourmet" establishments. Or at although that won't help you in time for New Years.[p]I discovered this stuff first a couple of years ago and told the forum about it. I then contacted the company and told them who they could thank for the big increase in orders. They did, and sent me virtually a lifetime supply.[p]1.5 inch thick steaks are optimum for Egging. For 3/4 inchers, 700* is good and try 2.5 minutes a side and NO dwell time for rare as a guideline.[p]Good luck,[p]K~G[p]K~G

    Nope, I stocked up on the Char, so okay for awhile. let me know when you get short & we can make a run to get some.
    I'm off for 4 days, so I want to pick up so quails again & egg them tomorrow night. Last time we cooked them they turned out great. Wanted to post pics but I screwed up & deleted the pics again. Solved that problem, sold the camera
    & got a fuji 4700. Works like a charm using a card reader.
    Tonight , just plain old steaks on the mini, not a challenge
    anymore, LOL.[p]Earl

    KennyG,[p]You should have bought stock before you told us about Char Crust. I am in San Jose California and still have not been able to locate the stuff. I order it, But if anyone knows of a store that stocks it in my area please let me know.[p]Dec

    Wow. Great story about Char crust. We should get Fireball in touch with "Hellmans" for introducing us to Citrus Splash. Maybe they'd send him a vat of it![p]Have fun with the lobsters, and a great new year celebration.
