    Beast,[p] T-Bones are terrible on a BGE.. Best send them too me, so I can properly dispose of them..[p]Two methods come to mind. T-Rex and Hot tubbin' or a little of both.[p]Rub them up with a little EVOO, and some good steak rub like Dizzy Pig's Raising the Steaks..[p]TREX
    Get that large fired up to 600-700 degs. Lay that steak on the grill for 90 secs and flip it. Lay it back on the grill for another 90 seconds. Set the meat covered someplace safe. Shut the vents down and let it cool to 400. Put the meat back in and let it roast till 130 internal. Take it out and let it rest for a few. Enjoy[p]Hot Tubbin.
    Put dem dar steaks in a zip lock bag and lay them in a pan full of hot tap water. Get your egg fired up and follow the steps above.. Take less time to roast them..[p]
