My wife got some Ribeyes (not very thick, about 1 inch) that I thought I would try the TRex method of cooking. So here we go.
Started out with the temp cranked higher than my dome thermometer could go (700 degrees). Let that baby rip for about 10 minutes -- really did have the "lava" look in the egg. Put the steaks on for 90 seconds each side. Here's how they looked coming off the Egg after the sear.

DSC_0056.jpg[p]Then put the steaks back on the Egg (had been resting off Egg for about 20 minutes. Here they are coming off the Egg after about 6 minutes (they aren't very thick so shouldn't take too much time).
