As long as I have been lurking here, I have not seen any references or posts to T-Bone steaks on the BGE. I have tried several methods and have not come up with a "good enough" method.[p]Can anyone share a method to make good T-bones on the EGG?/[p]Thanks for your attention


  • Cajun, I live on the Gulf Coast,, and can almost see Cajun territory from my house. As eveybody will tell you, nearly everything that hits my tongue is seasoned cajun, creole, or zydaco. OoooBoy![p]I do PorterHouse T-bones. My favorite. I let them sit for an hour or so at room (or deck) temp in Moores Marinade. It's like Dales but less salty.[p]Get a full bed of coals maxed out hot(bottom vent wide open, lid raised. Throw steaks on grill for a good sear on each side with dome open. Just when grease starts to drip and flame, I close the dome, leave the bottom vent wide open and use only open eyes of daisy wheel on top vent. Keep direct grease fire flame off of steaks as much as possible to prevent bitter burned flesh. It don't take long to get to rare or medium rare. I have learned how to poke the meat with tongs and tell how done they are. Really mushy is rare, mushy is medium, and as it gets firmer, you are getting to medium well and well done.
