2" ribeye

DelucaDeluca Posts: 97
I'm throwing this on tonight and I'm looking for thoughts on this. Normally I get the egg up to 600 and seer for 3 minutes on each side, shut the egg down and let it cook until internal temp is 130. Are there any other methods anyone recommends for something this thick? Thanks Much

    I do mine for 3 minutes a side at 800, but I like it charred, then I wrap in foil to rest.

    I did a ribeye (about 1.25 inches) reverse sear and it was great.  Very tender.

    Ok. thanks... So is this reverse sear done with direct or indirect heat? I can see going both ways with it.

    Takes me an hour to reverse sear 2" ribeyes, about 45 to get to 120 indirect. Pull plate setter let it rip up to about 500 90 secs a side

    Roger Dodger.... Got it indirect at 250. I may up that to 275. The meat is alway the way up to 68! It's been on for about 10 minutes... Ill keep you posted

    I did some thick strip steaks Friday... reverse sear. the egg got away from me and was around 350 so I used the thermapen and wasat 115, too far for me. I pulled them and just set them out. pulled the ps, threw on the mangrates and let out rip. while waiting the steaks dropped to 100. quick sear and turnedout great.
