Took a Costco 5.99 ribeye (or as we say here..Coss-co) and covered it with olive oil. Ground up some combo peppers in my little coffee grinder. Some black pepper, some tellicherry, some white stuff from somewhere else. Rubbed it all over. Sprinkled it down with some sea salt and a sprinkle of celery salt. Did the normal sear and bake. You know, gotta admit, it was one of the absolutely best perfect "Chicago crust" steaks I've ever pulled off. Maybe because I stood over it every 2 seconds stabbing with my thermapen (got a great deal on it, by the way). Did it on the mini. Have to tell you that NOTHING sears a steak like the mini. You are RIGHT ON that fire. All of my best steaks have come off the mini, now that I think about it.[p]Now that I'm done with that, gotta say one other thing. Was telling AlexShark (over a perfect steak and some nice Smoking Loon cabernet..cheap, but not pretentious) that everyone who has ordered the Thermapens has paid up right when they were supposed to and I haven't had to chase anyone down and etc etc. He looked at me and said you know, that is how it is supposed to be. We just get so used to being ripped off and dealing with cheats and liars that we start to think that is normal. It is not. THIS is normal.[p]I had to smile. Thanks for making this as much fun as it has been. You're a great bunch of NORMAL people and I love you all (despite this peculiar hangup with taking pictures of food).
