I picked up a BIG bone in rib eye. For a little something different I decided to try searing it directly on hot lump… figured I’d read about it here so what the heck. Carefully set it on a nice flat area of white hot coals. So far so good… slowly counted to 90 and pulled it off and took a look. Nothing stuck and it looked terrific… on to the other side. By the time I hit 60 seconds I had an inferno going on in my egg. I grabbed my tongs and went after it only to drop it about half way up…$#!%!!!! Grab it again and pull it free from the flames. Finish on the grill to medium. My $35.00 steak tasted like an ash tray. I’m thinking the dropping incident kicked up a lot of ash. Fortunately it was so thick I cut off the outside and had what amounted to a prime rib. Word of warning if you try this… use long tongs, wear a gloves and don’t drop your meat.
