Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

New egghead from South Florida -- Need help with steaks

Hi all, just got my egg a week ago and I've used it three times so far. I used to have a WSM and enjoyed it. But, though it was time to ditch the 3 grills i had and move up to the holy grail (and save patio space). Did some turkey burgers and a whole chicken last week with great success. 

I tried some 1.5" New York Strips last night and came out with perfect tenderness and color (130 degrees medium rare). I used the method on the BGE website with searing around 700 degrees for 2 minutes each side then shutting the door and putting the ceramic lid on to kill the fire. I used the BGE lump charcoal also. Problem is that the steaks came out way too smokey for my tasting. I saw on other threads here that it could be the charcoal. Also, saw that cooking the steak slow at 300 up to 120 degrees, wrapping in foil, and then searing helps.

Just wondering who else had this problem and how they fixed it.
