First attempt at reverse sear

I cooked two steaks tonight using the reverse sear method. They were scrumptious. The wife and kids thought they were good also. Also for veggies I cooked some yellow squash is Italian dressing. To do it I used the 18 inch grate I have and I placed it right on top of the charcoal. I cooked about two min on each side then put the reg grate in and finished them to 140. The squash cooked for about two min on each side. It still had some texture and crunch.

    Am I reading your post wrong? This sounds just opposite of reverse sear.

    Good looking meal, pretty sure it is a "traditional" sear. Your cold meat was put right on the lump, Trex style, then finished to internal of 140º. 
    A reverse sear would be to put cold meat onto an indirect low temp egg, 250-300º, then at an internal of about 125º, pull the steaks, foil, and change to a direct setup, your 18" grid right on the coals. Once the egg is hot, finish the steaks to char the outside.

    I don't care how many times I read your signature, it makes me smile each time. I guess I one of the "10" lol. Good odds though eh?

    Yes I stand corrected, I did a regular sear on the steaks. I told you it was my first time. Either way they were tasty. I can't wait to cook them again.
