    You'll probably get a ton of different answers on this, but I would cook it at a low temp (275-300). That way it will cook the same all the way through. You can quick sear it at the end and still have it at your temp from top to bottom without that grey layer.

    Usual recommendation is not to cook by time but by temp only.

    Atltire,

    I have no idea how long that would take. The usual is to go by temp, but I like to have a general idea. At 300 indirect, I would check it after an hour and you should be getting close by 1.5 hours.

    I always do reverse sear but...I go 275 or so for about an hour or until internal is 120. Then I ramp up fire and give it some color. Thick is a nice med rare and tail is for the med crowd.
