Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Time to go HOT!!

Doing my first steak on the egg tonight.  I am going to try the TREX method.  My steak is a little more than an inch thick so I am guessing just ease back on the cooking time a bit?

    I would do a low and all out sear, 90 min each side, reat and enjoy. Turn no more than once.

    Do you have an instant read thermometer?  Time varies greatly depending on steak thickness, grid distance from lump, etc.  Cook it to an internal temp of 125 for medium rare.

  • Just got done with the sear. Waiting for the egg to cool back down to 400. I like mine Medium Well. 90 minutes seems a bit excessive for steak. :P

    Mesquite for steaks!! But not much. You don't want too much smoke.

  • Steak is perfect with the exception of too much smokey flavor. Next time no smoke.

    Beautiful! For me, the lump is usually enough for smoke. Maybe add just a few oak chips for an oaked red wine.

  • I like a small handfull of Jack Daniels oak barrel chips for steak.

    Steak looks very nice... Good job! Someday you may want to try the reverse sear. It is much easier and much less chance of a negative out come.

    Yup, 90 secs. Sorry guys.  90 MIN will end up like Mickey's wings. :)

    My bad.

    Very nice!  Looks perfect from here. I prefer oak with beef.  I go pretty heavy with it, but I likes it smokey. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Did you do anything more than salt and pepper?  This looks so incredibly delicious!

    I followed the naked whiz's TRex method to a T (no pun intended)  I rubbed it down with a little olive oil, and then salt and pepper.  Had it not been for just a little too much smoke flavor it would have been the best steak I have ever eaten!

    Good looking steak.  And I completely agree with you.  The lump is enough.  No additional smoke needed for steaks or for my burgers for that matter.
