Hello fellow Eggers,[p]I grilled filet mignons last nite which were great and I got to wondering what cut of meat all of you like the most when it comes time to grill your favorite steak. What are your favorite cuts? Top three?[p]Bob

    WudEyeDoo,
    NY Strip, Porterhouse, Filet. Like the Strips and Porterhouses with Montreal Saesoning and the filet Wrapped on the outside edge with Bacon and served with Mason Butter.
    Gotta go check the Baby Backs. They been on 1 1/2 hours at 265* with mustard and JJ's rub.

    WudEyeDoo, top three?? Well, a dang good cut of top Sirloin is tough to beat..for lean..Filet mignon is of course the finest..Then Ribeye is next for a flavorful well marbled hunk of meat. The marbling, IMO, is the flavor. But if you want the very, very, finest cut of meat..then you will have to go select the Japanese special stock breed of cattle, Kobi Beef, and pay the price.
    So..Filet Mignon,Ribeye,top sirloin, porterhouse, T-bone, and special cuts of top tenderloins.
    Thats more than 3, but doing em justice..:-)

    BTW...Buffalo steak, again, IMHO, is a top ranked contender.

    WudEyeDoo,
    Rib-eye; porterhouse; filet...even though I seldom splurge enough for filets![p]Looking forward to our annual Christmas time dinner party when I do a whole rib-eye. It'll be a first on the egg!

    Shelby,
    Gonna amen here. You didn't rank 'em, but for me its filet first, rib-eye second and porterhouse third.
    We're getting something here called "mock tender." No idea where it comes from, but it's the size and shape of a filet, with a little bit of connective tissue right in the middle. (And that's sufficiently tender that is dissolves when you cook it.) Since it's less than half of anything else, it's what we eat the most of.

    Big Daddy, yes, It sure is nice for a change every now and again isn`t it.[p]Mop!

    WudEyeDoo,
    ribeye, ribeye, ribeye. My absolute favorite as well as the many who've tried them. I've done dozens of batches and just settled on them as the best. I've got a buddy that raised cattle and they fed the cow for their personal use corn until it couldn't eat anymore for a week then slaughtered it. He said that he'd put it up against any cow east or west. My grandad visited often from Kansas and didn't care for the taste of the "western" beef. I imagine that's because our cows eat sage brush and stuff most of their lives!

    George, in Colorado.. thanks for that one. I erred a while back on a post and was looking for that particular hunk of meat. If I am thinking the same cut, its the cut right near the larynx of the animal. In the neck..This is a real choice hunk of meat and usually the butcher took it home for himself..:-)
    At least some of em..:-)
    Thanks George!!

    WudEyeDoo,[p]Hangar whey I'm lucky enough to find 'em or a friend slaughters a cow.[p]Ribeyes a couple times a month.[p]Skirt or Flank for the most part because they can be cooked so many different ways.[p]Zip
