Tried My Hand At A Steak Tonight.... Cooked Raised Direct At 350 For 6 Minutes A Side, Then Pulled The Raised Rack And Tried A Reverse Sear... The Steak Came Out Tasty, But Not Much For A Sear Mark....

    Searing is for show, taste is what you are looking for and that looks good.  If you care about how it looks you will get it figured out soon.  Me I might have a picture worthy steak once every three months and I typically cook them twice a week. Doesn't matter what it looked like as long as it tasted good.

    Did you bump the temp up for the sear?

    Crank the temp up for the sear, and try using a cast iron pan/skillet.

    It's a little harder to do without cast iron...you really have to let the grid heat up for a while.  Like others mentioned...you can't taste the grill marks ;)

    I have the old style porcelain grids so I'm not sure if the stainless are better or worse for transferring the heat. 


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