Not much to tell, hot tubbed 2 ribeyes.  Shrimp @ 400 direct in cast iron thingies (they are lodge and I love them) with garlic, butter and white wine.  Pulled 
let the mini go into after burners seared the steaks to 125 rested with garlic butter and served with steamed beans.  amazing quick meal.

So much garlic there will be no vampires around here this halloween.

garlic, butter, white wine, shrimp

onto the mini at 400 dome direct


all done


my steak with cow lick and the wife's with just salt.  these were kinda compared small to the 3 pounders i've been seeing lately.  wife's was about 10 ounces mine was about 14.  3/4 of an inch and an 1inch thick.


45 seconds flip turn/flip turn until 125 on each.


basted with butter between flips  (semi Adam Perry Lang Like)

    Thanks all! @Village_Idiot that means a lot seeing your pretty plates all the time. @Aquacop beer was great, hoppy suprisingly nutty with a subtle sweetness. It had been bottle conditioned for like a year (read I found it in the back of the fridge).

    Now that's a steak! "Wipe his nasty ass knock his horns off and throw him on the plate. Would you care for some wine? Ya bring us a bottle of something another. Would you like it in a glass or do you prefer to drink from the bottle? Ahh naw glasses will be fine. You tell the cook not to screw up them steaks we're particular about our meat" The Cowboy Way. That's perfect!!! My wife likes well well well done. Me at the most med rare but prefer rare. Very nice cook!
