Char Crust vs. Grocery Store Steaks

On Saturday night two of my buddies came over bearing Steaks. [p]I had the potatoes on the Egg, beer on ice and was waiting on the Beef.[p]Since they were purchasing the steaks, something that they do not normally do, I had no idea of the quality or cut I would get to cook. Well, they knew that I had high standards when it came to beef and they did the best that they could. [p]What I ended up with was four NY Strips with bone that were cut way too thin, but I was not going to complain because they did well. I took the potatoes off and let my small egg take off. I then used the remains of my Hickory Molasses Char Crust and sprayed them with Olive Oil.[p]I egged the steaks at 1000 for three minutes per side and then let them rest for three more. The steaks came out perfect and juicy, but a little over cooked due to the thinness of the steak. The potatoes were great as usual. We ate and drank like kings.[p]The moral of the story is: Find a good butcher and have your steaks cut thick.[p]Happy Grilling,

    Done. You will do just fine.
    (Normally, I do provide the meat and beer)[p]I prefer Budweiser or Coors Extra Gold, but I guess PBR will do. Come to thunk of it I still have some cold beer so that leaves the steaks to you. HeHe.[p]How is the new Eggporium Construction going? Finished Yet?[p]RhumAndJerk[p]

    RhumAndJerk,[p]Indeed, thick steaks rule. I am curious, you mention "spraying on" olive oil. You put that in a squirt bottle? I usually pour about a teaspoon on each side after I rub with spice.[p]Fritz

    You can buy the spray bottles at most good kitchen shops. It was used for spraying olive oil in salads. It has a pump top. So you just pump the top, take it off and spray like an airasol.[p]MAC

    Mazola makes an Olive Oil Spray. I have heard that the pump sprays do not work that entirely well but I have not tried them. For as much as I use, the store bought one works great.[p]Hope this helps,

    I think the name is Misto. We have one. You just dump in some olive oil and it sprays out. It's also neat when you run out of Pam.

    RhumAndJerk,[p]3 weeks (or so they tell me) until Eggporium2000 is finally complete. Plan on coming over and maybe bringing your friends. There's never a shortage of cold beer.[p]K~G
