We had Steak Last Night

Cooked some Amana Beef - Bacon Wrapped Top Sirloin last night. I was able to get the fire up to 650. First time ever. In the past I could only reach 550.

I'll attribute the 100 degrees to the new Rutland Gasket I put on 2 weeks ago and my lid seems to sit a little straighter than in the past.

Pre-Cook Fire

Steaks are done


Nothing goes better with steak than fresh homemade horseradish and some fried potatoes.

    I would think you have a much hotter fire down on you CI than the 650 :whistle:
    THat 650 is going to be up in the dome, down at that level just off the lump maybe 1000?
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    Looks like you did a great job on those steaks. The quality of the beef is 90% of the result. Your skill and the cooker are the rest. Tell me some more about Amana Beef. I can spot quality beef because I raise Black Angus cattle. Those steaks look really good.
