    Nice looking steaks.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    brown chicken brown cow....!

    NY strip cooks so fast compared to many other steaks....blink your eyes and it can over cook.  I have a pretty low definition (temp wise) of overcooked, but just somethin' I've noticed over the years.  I'm pretty good at cooking steaks, but the sirloin strip is the one I've screwed up the most.  I'm not saying yours are overcooked, I'm saying those are some of the hardest to cook for me.   Anyway, those look fabulous.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    The egg is the only time I've had successful N.Y. strip. Completely agree they are touchy cook. When done right, they are fantastic. I go for easier ribeye cuts our sirloin if I'm being cost conscience. Once I'm at guru level, I'll do more strips. Looks like SF is there!

    They look awesome from here!!!!
  • Thanks, everybody!  Definitely agree that strips are the most difficult cut to do, although these turned out perfectly.  They were nice and thick, which always makes things easier.

    Those look mighty nice.  I am dying to try a reverse sear.  Just struggling the where to put my plate setter and what gloves to get for the grab.

    @SaturdayFatterday - Beautiful looking steaks, man!  I love the reverse sear..

    @radamo - I use a pair of these and they work just fine for me:

    and pretty cheap to boot.. regardless, though, you'll be hard pressed to find a pair of gloves that will let you hold a plate setter for more than 30-60 seconds, so get your spot prepared ahead of time and move quickly :)  

    I put mine legs down on my deck and haven't had a problem with it, but when I think about it I have a steel disc that my cheapo drum smoker used to sit on.

    @JaredMD and @SaturdayFatterday... both look like good reasonably priced solutions.  Thanks,
