Steak on a Pit Barrel Cooker
Has any one done steak on a PBC? Mine is my only charcoal cooker and I would like to figure out how to get that taste with a steak.

I did a tomahawk steak on it. Depending on steak either hang or put it on the grate.

Go CaveMan Style.

Mine are New York Strips. Did you put the lid on or leave it off. I followed the link to your post and The Tomahawks look super. I have two thick one and one thin one ( my wife likes hers we'll done) my son and I are more civilized. How long until you got that medium rare?
I haven't worked up the courage to go caveman yet.

For the thicker cut steaks I hang them, close the lid and pull when IT hits at the doneness level I desire. For thinner cut steaks I place in on the grate with so lid on and sometimes lid off. Lid on sort of replicates a reverse sear approach and lid off is like direct sear. Either way they come out lovely!

I bet you can do thick steaks nice with that. Go on the grate and caveman for the sear.

Thanks the knowledge is priceless.

For your thin cuts use a grate directly over the charcoal basket, out in the open. Don't even bother using the drum, it'll be in the way.

I have never seen steaks cooked hanging,they look evenly cooked.Why do you cook them hanging instead of laying flat?
