  • Gfw,howdy there----my suggestion is to let that sucker stew in it own juices--right down in the drip pan----and cover with foil---loosely, not crimped around the edges. Does it for me! Aloha,[p]Kona Tim
  • bill v., I ran into the same problem over here----then tried the BGE charcoal and have had great results ever since---[p]Kona Tim

  • Cat,Heck---didn't know there was another way! I get ribeyes from Costco, get the egg up to 1000 or so and give a minute and a half a side and take them off. I suppose a good vet might still be able to save the critter, but it sure tastes great.[p]…
