    I don't believe it.  Looks horrible.  Glad you were able to choke it down.  :))

  • Looks awesome! What kind of seasoning/rub did you use? Google search didn't pull up too much..

    WOW! I've always been a reverse sear kinda guy, I think you just converted me.
    68% of statistics are made up on the spot.
  • With regard to the sear stage--did you use cast iron griddle or a cast iron skillet for that part of the cook--I did not see any grill grate marks so curious as to how you cooked first stage?

    Wow that does look incredible.  

    I didn't have any luck googlin' for "Char Grill" rub either.  Char Crust perhaps? 


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

    That was my bad.  Its Char Crust.  I used the Roasted Garlic Peppercorn.

    Nope.  No Cast Iron griddle or skillet.  I used a heavy dose of Char Crust on both sides so it took the place of any grate marks.

    I do both methods.  I used the T Rex for this one since my grill got up to about 700 before I knew it!   Couple other tips:  
    • I like to keep a thick cut steak out at room temp at least 1 hour, and no more than 2 hours before I sear
    • I seared these 2 minutes per side (I timed it with a timer) with the lid OPEN.  I have found if I sear with the lid down I get more grey matter in the steak
    • When I remove the steak and let it rest after the sear I close the bottom vent the whole way, but leave the Daisy Wheel OFF.  It takes about 10-15 minutes for the grill to come down to about 400.  Then I put the meat back on to roast.  I continue to leave the daisy wheel off and open the bottom vent just a smudge to allow airflow.  This is a good time to add hickory, mesquite, or whatever firespice you like!
    • I let it roast 10 minutes, then flip every 5 minutes until done.  I use a thermapen to know just when to pull it.
    Enjoy!!
