NY strips in the snow

It was sunny all day, and just before dinner time, gigantic snowflakes started falling. My wife suggested we order pizza, but I went to the garage and came back with a workaround. 1.5" PVC, and a huge umbrella. I jammed the pipe into the mulch, slid the umbrella in and was in business.

I did the strips at 550, 4 minutes each side, with a quarter turn at two min intervals. Came out at medium rare, and rested for about five minutes. The last pic doesn't qualify as the normal food porn you see here, since we were already finished and this is what was left. Eh, I'll get better. The steaks were delicious though. And, the wife said "I'm glad we didn't get pizza." Score!image

  • Steaks look great, did the snow amount to much? We had giant flakes in Lincoln but ground was so warm didn't amount to much except for patches of ice on roads and sidewalks and maybe 1/8th of a inch on the ground.

    Enough to cover the table and dust the ground, but I don't think it'll stick. We've been spoiled with the temps in the 50's lately. I'm ready for spring!

    That's the kind of Egging dedication we look for around here. Keep up the good work!

    Sam are you in Lincoln?  Nice work and way to adapt, improvise, overcome, and eat steak!

    Those steaks are perfection! Very well done, even though it looks pretty cold there! Is that a homemade table?

    How about the umbrella. How is it anchored and is that a tarp hanging from the back of the umbrella? Interesting. Oh, the steak looks delicious. Especially under those conditions, rough.

    Thanks for the comments gang. The umbrella is actually a "Sportbrella". You can get them at ****'s Sporting goods for about $60. It has little flaps that pin down to the ground so you can use it as both a sunshade and wind block. It's awesome when used for its original purpose. I just stuck it into a piece of PVC pipe I had lodged into the mulch behind the patio. Completely jimmy rigged. Embarrassingly enough, I found out later that inside is actually a spike I could have just stuck in the ground, making the PVC unnecessary. On top of that, the Sportbrella absorbed an incredible amount of smoke and now it stinks. I wouldn't recommend this method. I guess I could always get a second one, and this could be my dedicated Egg-brella.

    @egret. No, unfortunately I paid for that one. I'll be applying several coats of spar urethane this summer. It's less than a year old and its already peeling badly.
