Spin, if you are out there, what is your "cold-smoke" method for defrosting beef (steaks) ??? I hate it when I have to wait for a long defrost for a steak that I forgot to defrost!!

    I have used that method. Works best when it is frozen just on the outside, but I have done it with a partially thawed steak. Thaw it a bit in lukewarm, water (in bag). When it is nearly tawed, but still a bit hard in the center, get a small group of coals going on top of your pile, put in a chunk or two (mesquite wood chunks are especially nice), and close your vents down to a crack. Put the steak on (not directly over the to the side) and smoke heavily for a half hour or more. Don't let temp get over 200.[p]Remove smoked/thawed steak, apply rub or mustard and rub, and bring humpty to searing temps and cook as you normally would.[p]Enjoy!
