Hi. This is my 1st entry in the forum. I have been a BGE owner since July and have strictly used it as a smoker. Can't say enough about it. I have gotten alot of information just by reading all of the entries on the forum. To everyone, thanks for the help and keep up the good work. I am now ready to try the BGE as a grill. I have an inch and a half thick porterhouse and would appreciate any suggestions as far as temp & time of cooking. Thanks again......MikeS

    MikeS, have never tried a porterhouse but I would imagine the traditional 3/3/4 at 750 should create a fine medium rare porterhouse. That is 3 minutes on each side at 750 and then close all the vents and let it dwell for about 4 minutes. It you want it well done, increase the dwell time to about 10-12 minutes.
