Had my Pops over for Father's Day and attempted a TRex on 2 good size NY Strips. I seared them about 700 for 70 seconds a side telling myself to be patient. Let them rest for 20 minutes and put them back on at 375 for 5 minutes a side using my Thermapen. I was trying to pull about 130 internal. I also had filets for mom and SWMBO (I guess that's 2 SWMBO's). I let it go too long. I ended up with 2 Medium Well dried out steaks.
Often I read about failure here and people say the steaks were still good. These were NOT. Still sick just thinking about. I was jumping around acting like I knew what I was doing only to have this EPIC failure. I will rise again but had to share this painful failure.
Not sure where I went wrong. Is it normal for the temp to accelerate really quick around 120's?
I think one lesson learned is that I was trying to do too many things at once - Salmon, Asparagus, two different types of steak.
Experience - of which I have very little - can be a painful teacher and expensive.
Couldn't take pictures - just too ugly.
