    Yeah baby!!!!

    250 indirect to 105 internal..then Lava for 45 seconds per side....here's what you get..


    What'd that take?  Around 40 minutes to get to 105F?

    Took about 30 minutes- the steaks were at room temp when I started, and that 250 was a grid temp.

    @rv10flyer I didnt check the final internal, but i'm guessing it was low 120's.

    @mross I had the same problem, and I have realized that you want a really brief sear, and also I learned to pull a good 5-10 degrees under target temp as carryover cooking will increase the internal by that much while resting the steaks waiting for the lava temps to occur for the sear!

    Revers sear is the way to go with thick steaks. You were basically grilling two little prime ribs. The only thing you are missing is two 4-pound potatoes.

    That looks fantastic!!  How long are the steaks resting before the sear?  Just enough to get your egg up to blazing or a set amount of time?

    @hoofaloos , no set amount of time, just long enough until lava is boiling in the fire ring!

    @jeroldharter I did not post pics of the twice baked potatoes I did along with these- but good thinking on your part!

    My question is what do you do with the platesetter between indirect and direct? 

    I've hot potatoed it onto a hot pad (mistake number one, now buying new hot pad), or ran down my deck stairs to set it on the concrete patio (mistake number two, too long a distance regardless of gloves). 

    Love the reverse sear result, just need to work on my logistics (I'm trying to convince wife that ar would make whole procress much easier.

    I use welders gloves to lift it out, and fortunately, there is a poured concrete pathway that runs up the side of my house right next to my deck, so it is only a few steps from egg to concrete.

    Taking notes! Even a chef at Ruth's Chris would be envious of those steaks.
