    Simon, Great cuts, never done them indirect, how does it compare in taste with a direct cook?

    Beli, I seared it first direct to get a nice crust and finished indirect until 135 F internal. Thats the way I mostely cook steaks. Especially the filet mignon is quite lean and I think I will get a bit dry when only cooking direct.

    Simon, those look terrific. What type of salt is that? Also those fillets are huge if that's an extra large egg. :woohoo:
