Now that I have woken from my meat coma I can post some pics. I decided to go the reverse sear route because that is the one I'm most familiar with and didn't want to ruin $40 worth of steak. I used my new Flame Boss 200 to stabilize the temp at 250. I actually played with the temps for a couple of hours to see the response of the FB. I'm pretty impressed. Flipped at 90 IT and bumped the temp to 300 (the potatoes were ahead of schedule) and foiled at 120 IT. Let the Egg go nuclear to 800 and tossed them back on. See the first pic. I left them on just a tad too long but they were still awesome. Nothing is better than a big hunk of beef on the Egg with roasted garlic and rosemary potatoes and a bottle of Beaujolais.
I'm coming to the experts on this one. Sunday is my Birthday and SWMBO knows I love my steak. She drops these on the table. 2 bone in Ribeyes that weigh 1.8 lbs each and are 2 inches thick. That is a full size dinner plate and fork for scale. These. with roasted red skin garlic and onion potatoes and a bottle of Bolla Valpolicella. I'm quivering. Do I do them hot and fast or reverse sear? Im thinking they are too thick to do anything other than reverse sear. Thanks Guys,
Well, I cooked them up. I was actually surprised how well they turned out. 350 for 2 hours, toss on some sauce, foil, and wait for everyone to get home. I guess we will know tomorrow. Thanks for all the input.
