    cryovac'd/foodsaver/ziplock with all air removed...under running cool water. Or use water at about 100-120 and use the "hot tub" method.

    You could hot tub them. Me, I would cook them a bit frozen for a delicious cool red centre.

    If you have a spa, Hot Tube" them, if not a bowl in the sink with hot running water, if not place on counter have a few shots of Mezcal and you won't care.

    Submerge them in water.I use slightly warm water(if I'm in a hurry),but I think that it's better than the microwave :whistle: ;)

    You might also consider a reverse TREX -- put them on at 250, until the center is 95-100 and then pull them, kick up the fire and let them rip on each side.

    It is technique you will want to learn for things like prime rib, anyway.

    Cold water in a bag is the best.

    Or you could set light to a 100 year old oak stump and toss them in.....
  • I agree with you - reverse t-rex is outstanding!
