start them caveman style and then when the outside gets to the sear you want on it, move it a little bit off the fire till cooked well done.

I like a reverse sear for thick steaks.. put them on the cool side of your grill or indirect till the internal temp is close to where you want it... then fire up the coals for the final sear... that's my plan for tonight!! Or I may go full caveman...
DANM! just remembered... I didn't get mushrooms at the store!

Indirect on the Egg...
This is a pretty thick steak - fed 2 of us, and as you can see we like medium rare so your time would vary, but the concept is the same.



Probably an hour or so in...



Fired up getting the final sear...



Resting...



Plated...

Thanks! It's a cook I did a while ago - been jonesing a good steak now for a while. Went to the wholesale store to get a standing rib roast yesterday and they had none, so got 2 rib eyes instead - they will be hitting the Egg this afternoon... but that's a different thread...

You gotta stop cooking steaks to well done. You'll be amazed how much more flavor you get with even a medium and even mor with a medium rare. I grew up on well done because that's how are family ate everything. My first job out of college was managing a Steakhouse and I was enlightened to a world of flavor by switching to medium then medium rare.

Okay, getting back to the OP's question, it is going to be difficult to cook a thick, juicy steak to well done directly on the coals. You are either going to have to go kind of thin on your steaks, like westy said, or do a sear directly on the coals, and finish cooking away from the heat, like aawa said.

BTW, I like a medium rare steak, but were not talking about my steak. You eat your's however you want it.
