There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

It's worth noting that you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet. I found somewhere that 145f was medium rare on a steak. The Horror! I way overcooked everyone's steak when we had company and I was trying TRex for the first time. I couldn't bring myself to photograph all that gray, over-done meat. I will say that it was still tender and it had darn good flavor.

Fortunately for me, there was one leftover NY Strip, which my dad and I tried a couple of days later.

On the second attempt I used a fan to stoke up the coals (just a regular floor fan out on the deck pointed up the skirt of my egg) and a new cast iron grate. The results were much more satisfactory.


I might add that we pulled the steak off when it got to 125 or slightly above.


This is how I like it.
