First "discussion" post: Cowboy cowboy, baby

Hello everyone.  I am finally contributing some meager content to this excellent forum.  I was sitting here enjoying a nice glass of wine and a preparing a pretty exceptional cowboy bone-in rib eye tonight, while watching the Dallas Cowboys absolutely destroy the Oakland Raiders tonight (joking, it was 3-0), and decided to post it.  I have really enjoyed all the other posts here so thought I would finally submit one.  The difficulty level here was probably a 1 on a 10 scale, but the results were glorious.

A 2.5 pound cowboy cut.  Excellent quality.  I got it at the Meat House in Avery Ranch (Austin, Texas area) after playing golf up there on Saturday.  A bit expensive, but most good stuff is these days.

Salt and pepper.  A lot of salt.

This thing was pretty thick.

Egg at about 650-700 degrees.  A nice cabernet - something from California.

Can you eat these things raw?

Action shot.

Pulled it at about 125.  Let it rest for about 10 minutes.

Money shot.  Delicious.

Have a good one!

I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.

    Don't sweat the simple cooks. We love to see them all. It doesn't have to be fancy. When was the last time you met a sophisticated person who called themselves an egghead? :)

    Thanks!

    And for the record I won the tournament outright.  (We won't go into details like my handicap and stuff - just know I won.)  And we have not played golf in too damn long so you have no idea how bad I am these days.

  • Well, knowing that you put in 70hrs a week in the coal mine, I figured you havent gotten a whole lot better :)). I guess T-Mac can play if I had to guess.
