cooked these maybe 4 times, the last 2 I cooked 250-300 until internal temp reached 125.

Cranked up to 550 and about 1 min or less each side

just amazing (and easy) if you watch temp.

    One of our favorites. I do prefer a little more char but I would tear that up.

    I agree, I think next time I will not listen to my son and take a little more time. He was rushing me. Needed to remove at 120 and crank it up to 600+ for the sear. Still had great taste ;)

    @JMCXL - since you gave me the opening, if you want a sure-fire (pun intended) way to get the char then you should give serious consideration to cave-man for the finish.  Pull at your 120*F- open the bottom vent and dome-wait for the bed of lava to form and then quick sear each side (on different sections of the coals).  You will get the char (45-60 secs) per side.  FWIW-
    Long tongs for this exercise.

    tired it once but didn't do the cook correctly.  Think the next time i will give that a try.  The Char would add a lot to the cook. Thanks for the heads up.

    Get a spider and 13” grate from cgs - invert it - gets you right down on top of the coals.  I wouldn’t do the reverse sear thing.  Just go hot and direct w multiple flips.

    Buy a cheap cast iron pan and just place the pan directly on top the hot lump. It will be hot enough to sear in minutes. Welders glove is nice to have.
    Great looking steaks.
    Thank you,
