Yesterday was my birthday and my son brought me a 2 1/2 lb porterhouse steak. Indirect at 300 until internal of 110 and then down low full blast to 125 with the therm open. I let it sit while we threw together a Caesar salad. Wife and I really enjoyed it!

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Cooked to perfection too.  It's breakfast time but that makes my mouth water.

    looks great to say the least. Nothing like a good steak and a glass of red wine.
    Beautiful setting as well.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. I think it climbed to about 130. The red wine was Angus, auzzie cab (very good). I've had a bit too much red meat this week. Time for some chicken I think?
