Has anyone trexed some really thich filets? Did you sear for 3 minutes per side or longer? Did you cook for 6 minutes per side at 400F after resting the meat?

    <p />TideJoe,
    here is a 3 inch sirloin and a 2 bone ribeye that where trexed. go by looks for the sear and temp for the doneness. bone in and i roast at 325, boneout on the thick ones and i roast at 350.

  • TideJoe,
    these are two inch thick sirloins being trex'd. ...when doing really thick ones like this, i make sure the egg is really hot (over 800 degrees), and as a rule of thumb, i sear for 30 seconds per 1/2 inch of meat per side. . .so for these, they got exactly 2 minutes per side of searing. . ..then after the 20 minute rest, the dwelled at 400 degrees for about 6 minutes per side for medium rare. . ..i do the same for 2 inch thick fillets. ...[p]DSCN0100.jpg
