Cowboy Ribeye

This was my first time getting the egg to max temp, and it was a success. Bought a 2 lb massive cowboy ribeye.


rubbed it with olive oil, freshly ground black pepper and seasalt.

did the reverse sear method. I underestimated how long it would take to get up to 120*. removed the platesetter, opened the vents up and got it up to way past 700*. Did 45 seconds, rotated 90 degrees, then flipped and did the same. Results were a perfect medium rare plus.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Looks good. Take it to 110, pull, go nuclear and you'd be right at medium rare.
