Logger's Rex

Started with a 1 7/8" thick Prime Rib Eye from a local butcher.
Poured a generous amount of Low Sodium Kikkoman Soy Sauce and Montreal Steak Seasoning and brought to room temperature.


Setup the XL with a Craycort Cast Iron Grate  (4 - 90° Grates) put one right on top of the coals.
Another one up on the Craycort Grid.  This allows me to sear really hot and then rest, then finish the steak without having to aggressively cool the egg.


Sprayed the grate with Pam and threw that bad boy on for 20 seconds.  Turned 90° for another 20 seconds.


Turned it over and repeated the process.


Took it off for a 5 minute rest and closed in the egg to start bringing the temperature down a bit.

Place steak on the upper grid for about 7 more minutes or so until the Maverick read 125°


Let rest 7 minutes because that's all we could stand...sorry it's the truth. And, plated.  I wanted to use real plates but, the wife told me I would have to
do the washing and drying so....Ok, paper is good with me too.


Almost forgot to take the last picture...Almost too late as well.

    It's great for steaks and anything you want to put sear marks on but, I finally found a plastic tub that all 4 grates fit into so that I can try to keep them seasoned. One of my grates broke in half but, I rarely need all 4.  Leaving one or two out allows me to stir and or move the coals around to my liking or to turn the grid that holds the grates to where I want to cook.
    As with any cast iron components, I always clean, spray, and then let cool before putting up.
