Did a chuck roast at 275 for 5 hours. Seasoned with cowlick and smoked with a little hickory. Added some pepperoncinis to it and made Italian Beef sandwiches.
The next cook was a few steaks I used the Trex method on. Seared at 750 for 90 seconds per side, wrapped in foil while I waited, got temp down to 400 and then went 6 minutes a side for a perfect medium well. The sear was perfect after the 90 seconds. It did seem to burn a little during the 6min 400 cook. I did it direct. Would throwing the place setter in and getting to 400 help with the burning? I don't have the money to experiment with this one!
