Mad Max Rolled Flank Steaks - Direct or Indirect

I rolled up 2 beautiful flankers last night that are waiting in the fridge for me to throw them on the Egg when I get home. Do you guys cook these direct or indirect, or both? I'm bringing them to a party down the street that starts at 6:30, but we probably won't eat for another hour. My goal is to take them off right at 6:30 - think they'll still be good in an hour? All tips appreciated.[p]Thanks!!


  • Cornbread Willy,
    Thank you for asking this! I am cooking a couple of these on Sunday for a holiday luncheon Monday. I was also wondering about smoke, has anyone added any?[p]Thanks!

    <p />Cornbread Willy,
    Can't remember, but looks like I did the sear then finished them with a drip pan like prime rib (as per Max's instructions).[p]Happy Holidays!

    Cornbread Willy,[p]You can do these on a grid over a drip pan (sort of indirect) or even in a pan - that's what I seem to recall Max suggesting. Because there's so much stuff in them and they are thick, I don't think direct works too well - the inside wouldn't get cooked.[p]I think Max's recipe, or at least some similar recipe, says that they can (should?) be served cold. I've not done that but it tells me there shouldn't be a problem with the delay you will have. I'd also think you could pull them a touch early and foil them - they'd likely last an hour without a problem and finish in the foil.[p]

    Lawn Ranger,
    Pin Wheels...locally called "Poor Boy Fillets." Year ago I discovered a butcher here in Metro Kansas City who introduced them to me.[p]I have them made with flank steak. They are a regular on our family menu.[p]I grill them direct.[p]

  • Cornbread Willy,
    if you are doing the whole rolls (as opposed to individiual pin wheels), do them indirect at 375 degrees dome temp. .. reserve a little of the marinade and drizzle it over the rolls about halfway through the cook ...they should take about 40 minutes or so ....
