Decided to have an impromptu cook Friday night since the end of summer is nearing. We had my brother and sister in-law over and featured a 4 pound, 3 inch thick Porterhouse served family style. I seared this at 650 degrees with the dome open for 90 seconds per side and then let it rest for 20 minutes. I quelled the fire down to 400 degrees and added some Mesquite chunks for the roast. Roasting time was 7 minutes per side for a perfect medium rare after a 10 minuute rest. Served with baked potatoes and garlic bread. Ahhh, indian summer in the Northwest.

Happy Grilling!

    That's one big piece of MOOOO!

    Looks great had to taste great!
  • Funny thing is I have had my egg for 2 years and only just started posting. I have done a lot with my egg including 2 successful long smokes, a brisket and a pork shoulder. Looking forward to even more.

  • I agree with RGBVH - thats not BBQ, thats great steakhouse cooking!! Bet that beats any steak house - now all the special occasion dinners can be at your house!

  • My nipples just got hard.... ;)
  • Just so everyone knows. I didn't mean to call this post BBQ, it was supposed to be called last nights grill but somehow I forgot to change it. Thanks for all the great comments!
  • Looks incredible.

    I'm a newbie - how did you prepare the potatoes at the same time?
  • "My nipples just got hard"

    Me too. The second and third pics in particular really hit me in my special spot.
  • Nice peace of meat

  • I actually par cooked them in the microwave first and than finished them on the Egg after I pulled the steak from the sear.

  • Wow! Well done!
  • Now I know what I want for dinner tonight! B)
  • I know, I know, I forgot to change my title.
  • let me join in the pigpile and say that looks absolutely fabulous!

    An interesting point to note- your steak looked so good that NO ONE commented on the fact that your taters were wrapped in foil!

    (Hey mine were wrapped in foil tonight, I'm just sayin......)

    the hard nipple thing made me laugh (and fart) out loud!

    too much information, I know....
  • That looks wonderful.
