Rib eye

  1. Today I picked up a Erin eye from the butcher. I wanted to try grilling with lump. So I turned my mini WSM back into a smokey Joe, loaded some lump and lit it up. When it was ready, I put my steak on. Went inside for five minutes, when I come back all I see are flames! I run over and flip it, I caught it in time, nice char but not burnt. Kept an eye on it while the other side cooked.
    When it was done I let it rest for 5 minutes, then chowed down!
    This is exactly what I was missing in my steaks, char! This was one of the best steaks I have ever made! I usually grill on my gasser.
    Definitely going to keep grilling with lump, it's awesome. Adds such a good flavor.

  3. That's so true. It's funny because I just used coal for the first time in 3 years for my homemade fresh sausage and it was incredible the difference in flavor from my gas grill..

    Yeah, you gotta keep your eye on those ribeyes. The fat will render quickly and start a flame up. Believe me, I know. The last time I made them on my propane grill, I went inside to toss a salad, and when I came out it looked like a bonfire.
     
  5. My boyfriend adds charcoal or lump to the gas grill!!!! I have the best of both worlds.
     
  6. I've been experimenting with that Husker. Do explain a bit or take a couple pics. That'd be awesome!
