Grilling filets on my friends egg because my is a month before I get it. Has anybody grilled filet minion. What temp is good. Indirect or direct?


  • Search T-Rex Method. 
  • Filets are my favorite. Medium rare, remove at 130 internal, I Like medium, remove at 140 internal both direct. I tried hot tubbing and searing recently and the steaks were awesome.

  • amen to the T-Rex method.  I cooked a couple filets that way last week and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had!

    My last two steak cooks done the T-Rex method. I now know I ruined every steak I ever cooked before the T-Rex method.

    T-Rex!!  I run mine up as hot as I can get it, usually 800*+ to sear for 1-1 1/2 minutes per side.  Pull the steaks, cool'r down and finish at 400*.  You won't find a finer steak!  Pull at 120* and cover with foil to rest for rare, 125* for medium rare.  Anything beyond that go to Burger King and send me your filets! :D ;
