Cooking at 350 dome, meat is at 85 internal now, would ya'll go direct to sear at 120 internal to about 135ish?

Thanks and Happy 4th :)

    Tim, I've not done a big strip, but have done whole beef tenderloins. If your final goal is medium-rare, I would remove it from the grill at 120-122*, remove the platesetter and get the fire 400-500*. Carefully (with strong tongs and gloves) sear it for 60 sec. on each of four sides. Cover with foil and rest for 10 minutes. Should be perfect!

    I pull my beef roasts at 125f, sear and then rest for 10-15 minutes. I find that the sear portion does almost nothing to the internal temp. If I pull at 125f, the brief sear MIGHT knock it up 1-2 degrees. I'm craving a beef roast!
