Let me finish my question since it appears not to have made it to my original post. I have a 2" thick rib-eye to cook. It weighs 1.5 pounds. Looking for suggestions on the best way to cook it. I am hoping the experts speak!

Thanks for all the input. I think I will do 2 turkeys. 2 more drumsticks for people to fight over. Question now is direct vs indirect? I have a Woo2. Raised direct vs. indirect. I saw Mickey's suggestion and may give that one a try on my 1st t…
