Sorry, I've done them once bf, tried to search the forum for info again, but the forum search help me.  I've got a couple of rib eyes, 1 1/2" thick.  What temp, how and for how long?  I bought some Dizzy Pig dust today, but I doubt if that would be good on them?? Tx, I'm sorry to bother you guys, but the forum search sucks.  What temp for medium rare?

    I get the egg to like 700 or so, sear for 1.5 min each side, then pull the steaks and close vents until the egg gets down to 350-400.  Then finish cooking to medium rare about 125 internal (with a 5 minutes rest, should be about 130 when you start eating).  Bringing the egg back down usually takes 10-12 minutes.

    One of the most popular methods is the TRex method.  That's the one I use.

    m. rare, pull it at 125 to 130.

    Note: ChokeOnSmoke's post above is essentially the Trex method.
