Steaks are ON!

Had to run by Wally-World today to pick up some Royal Oak as the nearest source for WG is a 100 mile round trip away :(  Picked up some boneless rib eyes, thick cut!

Rubbed with garlic, dusted with s/p.  Taking to 130 IT, foil while the heat cranks up then seared off.  Pairing with wild rice, Blue Moon, a Rocky Patel Decade and playoff Basketball :D

    those look awsome, butter? I have never put butter on my steaks,  prob. from the potato, but not just on them, interesting concept.  they look amazing.  awsome job.

    What's your dome temp while your cooking up to 130 IT? I always sear my steaks first and they never come out the way I want them. Looking to try a reverse sear soon.

    Chris, I always let my steaks rest with butter. I slice butter, then hit it hard with garlic powder. If I'm going to add fat to my steak, this is the way I go.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ...

    Thanks for all the comments, steaks came out fantastic; excellent temp/color all the way through!  Don't know if it's the recommended method or not, but I started at 300 for the IT cook and finished at 650 for the sear.

    Last few times I have roasted then foiled while heat raises. Add CI skillet to heat and butter. Drop in steaks. Reverse sear in butter

    I think it's a midwest thing.  People/restaurants put butter on everything here.  Steaks, hamburgers, steak sandwich, etc.

    130? We must use different thermometers. For this kind of cook, I would go to 105, remove the meat, fire up the grill, and then get internal to 130, then rest. Looks medium rare like yours.

    Butter adds unctuousness to the steak and helps round out flavor. Many times it is compounded with aromatics like herbs and alliums(garlic, shallots, onion). Many herbs and spices are fat - soluble so they "bloom" as the butter melts from the residual heat from the meat. This creates a flavorful "pan sauce" from the meat juices, butter and pepper, salt and whatever you added. This can also be done with olive oil.

    When I add butter to a steak I usually make mine a compound type of butter by adding herbs or garlic and putting on top!   

    Amazing!

    Thanks again y'all and I seared for 60 seconds on each side after roasting to 130, so the IT wasn't affected much.  Could be my temp gauge is off though, may have to check that today!
