3 - 2" ribeyes

Just fired up both eggs small for wings indirect large for ribeyes. Lookin for different way to cook steaks. I've done reverse sear, done them regular grilled was thinking cast iron grate on top of adjustable rig so it's up high and try like 800-900 degrees going for rare with a good crust. Also like post with the cast iron skillet. Any ideas there already dry rubbed

    Did 1 above felt line 900 degrees and 2 on cast iron skillet with garlic and olive oil 500 degrees all 3 had salt pepper and a little rattlesnake dust they all had nice crust and were all taken off at 125. The one on the cast iron skillet was incredible here's some pics

    Man you nailed that one.  They all look great.  Now I'm wishing I would've got steak instead of salmon.

    What happened with the 800-900F ones?  I wouldn't think you could do a decent job cooking a thick steak at that high a temp without overcooking the outside or undercooking the inside.

    Skillet was about 9 ". I did the high temp one on top of adj rig it was pretty far from flames It did get a litte char but not bad at all. It was hard to get accurate reading on thermapen cause grill was so hot so took it off when it looed done and my buddy's are it as fast as I sliced it

    So your cast iron skillet will handle the 800 degrees? Most I see recommend safe to 500 degrees. I would like to get one, but am worried about it holding up.

    I brought temp way down to about 500 for cast iron cook otherwise a thick steak would have burned
