Picked up a couple of New Yorks and wanted to give the T-Rex system a try.  This was 90 seconds per side @ 650 degrees. "> image




Rested 20 minutes and finished off @ 400 indirect until rare.

    Steaks look good.  ...and nothing like a combo of beer and wine with the meal! :)

    Budgeezer they look great.  I am a big fan of the  TRex system.

    1.  I put the steaks on a 250 indirect grill with a temp probe in.  When the internal temp gets to about 110-115 I pull them and switch to direct heat. 

     2. Tent the steaks while the fire comes up to temp of 650-700.

    3. Sear each side for 90 seconds or so, depending on desired temp (rare, med rare, etc)

    Try it some time.

    What was the special occasion? That Bottle of Caymus is some good stuff.

    And Bud In a Can.

    Not really a special occasion just starting off the long holiday weekend.  The Caymus was awesome.

    Bud is a can is pretty much the house beverage.

    I dry them, and bring them to room temperature.  Sprinkle with salt/pepper/Montreal.

    650 one side for two minutes, flip, 650 the other side for two minutes, flip, place a pat of butter on top and shut down the grill.  Leave on for about three minutes for a perfect medium rare.

    Best steak I've ever eaten.

    If you're going to have opposite sides of the spectrum you should have opted for PBR or Shlitz.
