Are these steaks to thin to reverse sear? I have reverse seared 1 1/2 to 2 inch thick Strips at 250 indirect until 110/115 then pulled the plate setter and cranked it to 500/550 then seared  to 130/135. Any thoughts?

    You can still do it but you need less time and for the sear and reverse sear.  Watch it closely.  Keep your Thermopen handy!

    Personally I wouldn't bother for fear of over cooking them real quickly!

    would be better with the hot tub and sear method, dont see much need for a roast and sear with thin steaks

    Well they were good, I pulled the plate setter after indirect cooking some stuffed bacon wrapped dates and took it to 500 and grilled until 130 tented and rested while I grilled the asparagus and they were mighty fine.
