    Does he deserve all that, Char-Woody? Of course he does, but how did you marinate it and then cook it, please?
    Tomorrow we are headed "Up North" where we buy our meat from the butcher who displays the photos of the blue ribbon winning 4-H livestock with the proud kid & butcher behind the counter of the market.
    Veal brisket... yum!

    <p />J Appledog, Dales marinate, about 1/4 cup and 1/4 cup water mixed. Durkees Grill Creations for the hard seasoings. Worked together nicely.
    Rolled and vaccum sealed overnight, 24 hrs. Grilled about 30 to 40 seconds on a cast iron grate, flipped over same way on the grill 4 times..reversing the grill grate pattern for a nice cross check. Makes em purty.
    Then dwell..closed dome. about 3 minutes..these are a thin 3/4 inch steak so fast cooks are necessary. High heat. I pump my charcoal with a hair dryer to boost the heat intensity.
    You need the fast sear to hold the juices in thinner steaks. Thick ones too.. but you knew that.. And I knew you knew that..Yer a super cook.

  • J Appledog, Flank steak is one of my favorites. Try this, take some olive oil, worchester sauce, soy sauce, fresh diced garlic, little onion salt, dash of liquid smoke, mix all together, should make around 1/2 cup. put steak in bag, pour in and marinate overnite. Next day, get one of those disposable aluminum foil pans that is about the size you would make brownies in. Slice up 1 nice yellow squash, 1 nice zuchinni, 1 lge. sweet onion, 2 handfuls of fresh mushrooms, 1 red and 1 green bell pepper. Cut all this up and put in your pan. add some worchester sauce and 1 stick of butter. Put on egg at about 350 degrees and cook until the veggies are done to your liking, stirring about every 15 minutes, making sure there is liquid in the pan. These should not take more than an hour. Cook up some rice, trying to time everything to be done at close to the same time. When the veggies are done, goose your egg so that it gets up to 500 or so, put your flank steak on for 4 min., flip for another 4 min, then shut down for a few minutes and let it dwell. Pull it off when it is 140 internal and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Serve veggies over your rice, cut the flank steak thinly, cross grained, dip some of the juices from the veggies over the veggies and rice, tear off a nice chunk of bread for sopping and dig in. It don't get no better.

    <p />Char-Woody,[p]Flank steak is a favorite of mine, IMO much better than london broil. If you haven't tried MadMax's rolled flank steak yet you're missing out on some good eats.

    Chuck, thanks for that one...strange, similar thoughts came to mind as I rolled this one up for the canister. I seldom vaccum marinate a steak, but this one fit the cannister nice. The results..Maybe yea, maybe nay. Darryl (5x9)sent me a thread on another forum that I tend to agree with. Great pics....thanks again for MM's method.
