I got an Omaha Bacon-Wrapped Filet of Top Sirloin for my husband's birthday. Do I sear it first or reverse sear it? and what temp. Is mesquite chunks too strong for this meat? Filets are about 5 oz (3/4 inch thick. Thanks for any advice you can give.

    Those are so small I would think if you get a good high heat sear on both sides, 500 degrees plus. Then shut the egg completely down and let it sit for five minutes you would be more then good. Would have to actually see the meat though. Haven't gotten anything from Omaha in a while.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    I have called Omaha repeatedly asking the grade of meat that they sell. The only answer is "the best they can get". I push them further and they say Prime or Choice, and I ask if it is marked as such. No, just the best. I'd be very careful of Omaha. Also, look to see if it's been injected or soaked or somehow "tenderized" or "flavor enhanced". I don't trust Omaha.
  • I ordered from them before and wasn't that satisfied. (that was before I got the EGG). However, I got an email for a 71% savings - sucker I am! Oh well, I'll make sure there are other foods for the family to enjoy!

    By the way, i hope your friend's mother got her wish for 100 cards?

    with 71% off thats not bad but with the egg grocery store choice is just fine with me. I am gonna have to try that dry age thing though just to see if I like it.
