It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

If I am searing the steak at 650 degrees should I use grape seed oil or use olive oil?  plus sea saly and fresh ground black and white pepper.

    I never use oil when searing steaks on my BGE. But if you are going to use one of the two mentioned, I would use grape seed oil since it has a MUCH higher flashpoint.

  • I use peanut oil myself and enjoy it better than olive oil.

    no oil required.  that's for pan searing, where it helps transfer heat from the cast iron pan.  on a charcoal grill, that oil just gets in between the radiant heat of the lump and the steak.  a dry steak will sear best
