I just got some 1.5 inch thick filets. What is the best time/temp for medium.


  • RICH,
    Go by temp and don't worry about time. Temp for medium is 140. If steaks are not thich enough for reading, stack em and then slide the probe into the stack.

    I use the 700 degreee method. I get my egg up 650 to 700, put the filets on and sear for 3 minutes, flip and sear other side for 3 minutes, flip once more and shut down all vents and dwell (get let steaks sit in egg for 4 more minutes). I also have my steaks sit out 1 hour at room temp in extra virgin olive oil before cooking.[p]Good luck,
