My daughter's best friend flew in from Missouri last week to stay with us for a week. Last night was her last night so I decided to grill up some steaks on my LBGE. Then after dinner they wanted to have some friends over to watch "Jaws" from the pool so I set up our Backyard Movie Theater. Everyone had a blast!!
I do have a couple of questions about my cook though. I loaded up the egg with fresh lump and got my webster chimney starter going. Once the coals in chimney were red hot i dumped them evenly on top of the lump in the egg. With the bottom vent fully opened and the top uncovered i closed the lid. The dome temp quickly started to rise. I went to prep steaks and after about 10 min I went to check on egg. the temp was 500 and rising with flames almost coming out of top vent. Several minutes later i checked egg again and the dome reading had dropped down to "0". Couldn't get it to give me a reading. I know the egg was HOT so I'm not sure what was up with the thermometer (Later it did jump up and appeared to be working properly). Here is my main question..when i put the steaks on the grill to sear, the flames were still shooting up pretty good. I Trex'd em so I left on each side for 90 seconds before removing them to get temp back down to 400. Even though the steaks turned out absolutely wonderful, they were a bit to charred for my liking. Am I suppose to wait until there are no flames to sear the meat???
Here are a few pics of the evening. Sorry for the lame pic of the finished product but was too hungry to dress it up nicely!! The movie was a hit also! There are 11 of us on one tube...I'm the baldy in the back!
