    I had a couple of small fillet steaks in the freezer. The temperatures were warm. The sun was shining. It was time to do a steak and baked potatoes on my pellet smoker.

    I started by making 5 or 6 slices almost all the way through a couple of baking potatoes.

    I put thinly sliced onion in each of the slices.

    I put a half strip of bacon on each potato.

    I wrapped each in foil.

    I'd taken the left grate out of the Louisiana Grills smoker and preheated it to 350 F.

    I put the potatoes in and cooked them for 45 minutes.

    I moved the plate covering the direct flame grill grate.

    Then I put the left grate back on and turned the grill up to 450 F.

    While the grill was getting up to 450 F, I gave both sides of the steaks a generous amount of Louisiana Grills Chophouse Steak Rub.

    When the grill was up to temperature, I put the steaks on over the direct flame grate. I let them sear for 30 seconds and then rotated them 90 degrees to get a nice crosshatch and seared for 30 seconds more.

    I flipped the steaks and did the same to the other side.

    I moved the steak to the main part of the grill and smoked for about 6 minutes a side to an internal temperature of 135 F.

    I took the steaks and potatoes in and let them rest for 5 minutes.

    We like our steaks sliced thin and then served.

    We served them with She Who Must Be Obeyed's great deli style coleslaw.

    The Verdict

    It was just steak and potato. It was just great.

    Nice and simple. Never thought of bacon in the potato.

    I just did an amazing T-bone, fresh asparagus and baked tater over hickory. The tater is down in the coals.

    Kind of you to say, Al. Nope, no mods. It comes with the direct flame grate.

    When I saw your thread title..."should I open it? Just another steak+taters...there can't be anything new".

    Boy, was I wrong? Love the way you did the potatoes.

    Awesome meal.

    Damn you and your delicious pellet grill meals Hhaha now I want one of those for my fleet. The steak looks great and the sear looks awesome! I laughed when you said your wife likes it thin slicesdand served because my wife is the same way. She doesn't like eating steak as a solid piece or on the bone so she always asks me, "Is it thin steak?" Points for sure!

    Thanks, Atomic. It was a fine meal indeed but most simple dishes are.
    Har! How about being my agent. They have sent me some spices.
    It is true. We all wish we were from Louisiana.

    Thanks, Justin. I like steak way more than SWMBO. She calls it cow but lets me indulge from time to time.
    Thanks, Dave! A food blog. Hm? No, that would be crazy.
    Thanks, Case. I do love a steak.
    Isn't amazing how so much of the way we cook is formed by the desires of our mates? Thanks so much.
