Yesterday, I went to the only grocery store in my area that carries any prime grade meat because I was wanting a really , really good steak. They had a very limited selection in this grade but I picked out a couple and here is the cook.

Added CharCrust HIckory





Cut, I know it is prepared "more done" than many like, but hey, I like it this way so thats how I cook it... When you come over for dinner, I will prepare yours like you like it...

    Looks real good to me! Nice cook!

    I'll be right over. :)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    A Char Crust fan I have not used that for years. Very nice looking steaks.

    They were seared at around 625 dome, and then roasted at around 450 dome.

    It will take you a while to get here from Connecticut, I better go get some more and throw them on when you get close...

    CWM, I have become a fan of char crust myself. I have only used the hickory, what experience do you have with their product line and which would you recommend? thanks

    Well heck, I'm coming over then! B) Looks great and I bet that seasoning added a great touch!

    Hickory is my favorite, but I haven't used it for years. Those steaks got me thinking about getting some. Real soon! :)

  • :woohoo:

    Molly, I'll save a seat at the dinner table for you. The seasoning really went well with the steaks.

    Roll Tide,

    Steaks look amazing! I haven't used char crust since the gasser. May be time to revisit.

    Roll Tide, the raw steaks looked perfect to begin with and your cooked steak even better! :)
  • Very nice indeed!!! What exactly is your searing setup?
  • CruzrCruzr Posts: 91
    They look perfectly done to me. Gonna have to get me a couple of those. B)

    I order Char Crust off the internet since no local stores carry it. It is the bomb!

    I have an old rectangular CI grid from an offset that I use for searing. Sometimes I will take out fire ring to get closer to fire, but not always. Then I finish on homemade raised grid.
