Default Singed the crap out of my eyelashes but cooked a great steak

2.2# tomahawk w carne crosta (much appreciation to the Brethren for the fantastic recommendation) and additional S&P. Indirect about 235* took about 1:40 to get to 118*. Used Weber briqs and B&B lump.



Took it off and added some EVOO since that is recommended w carne crosta.



Got a raging fire going using the BBQ Dragon. I always thought this was a gadget I wouldn't use much, but it's come in handy--including getting the coals screaming hot before a sear.....So hot that the fire singed all my eyelashes and it looked like I'd got the tips of the lashes frosted. Not exactly the look I was going for.



Pic of the sear stage after a flip at 45 seconds. I was using the cold grate technique. I'm finding I like that strategy a lot.



And done....



Man, this steak was good.



The kind you want to share with family and friends.



Family loved it--except my boy said it was a little too wet inside the meat....I'll take that as a compliment. Thanks for lookin.

Ha! Made me laugh. Seriously, I thought about trying to get a pic of my beautifully highlighted lashes, but I know how this works: Tomorrow I'd be the latest meme floating around the internet with all kinds of creative captions to make me feel like a real winner.

Hey, you're right about that. Thanks.

Cold grate--nothing all that special but worth trying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U722RZahzzU

The advantage I'm getting from it is less flare-up and a more even sear of dark mahogany and less sooty char on my steak.

KANCO - this is brand new to me and makes perfect sense, thank you for sharing.
You actually could Reverse Sear using this method. Thanks!

(and I'll never forget throwing the match into my gas oven age 22 and poor to get a WHOOSH! and then off to the haircutter, smelled bad!)

Yes, lid off for the sear. Lid on for the low part of the reverse sear.

I still say you’re ahead. I’d sacrifice an eyelash or two for that tomahawk! Nice cook!
