Arrow Oak & Hickory Smoked Pepper Crusted Filet

The other day, the missus and I were going through the freezer, and found a hunk of meat we had vacuum sealed. We didn't know what it was at first, then we realized it was 1/2 of a whole USDA Choice filet we scored at Restaurant Depot a few months back. Thought I would put it to good use, so after it thawed, I rubbed it down with seasoned pepper and kosher salt. Added a touch of Lawry's on top just for kicks:



Meanwhile, I prepared the Kingsford oval for the usual smoky reverse sear, and added a piece of oak and some hickory chips:



I lit about 15 briquets in the chimney starter, then dumped them on the unlit briqs along with the oak chunk & hickory chips:



Then I put the meat on the cool side of the grill so it could take a nice smoke bath in the oak & hickory:



About 20 mins later, I turned the meat, and placed it closer to the hot side of the grill:



Once the internal temp of the filet reached 110, I moved it to the hot side of the grill so it could get a nice crust by evenly searing on all sides. I pulled the meat at 125 and let it rest for about 15 mins:



It was time to carve the meat, and while I was doing that, the Missus whipped up some of her world famous cheesy garlic bread and a salad. The meat cut like butter and was done perfectly:



Here are a few slices plated with the cheesy garlic bread, and the salad. Sorry, didn't make time to take a more formal pic with better lighting, but you get the general idea:



Thanks for checking out my pepper crusted filet!

Yeah, right, lighting. You could show that in total darkness and it would still shine. Mmmm, nicely cooked
