    i liked the prime rib that i made last weekend so much that i decided to finally try a steak on my traeger.  I loaded the pellet pooper up with hickory and thawed a couple ribeyes.  My butcher sells full ribeyes for $7 a lb so every so often i buy a one and have it cut up into steaks so i always have a supply of ribeyes.  just like the prime rib i seasoned it with lawrys.  I smoked it for about an hour until IT was 125 then seared it on my weber grill for about a minute on each side. one of the best steaks i have ever had.  Interesting how the outside turned "smoke ring red" as soon as i threw it on the grill.   i have always had my steaks cut kind of thin so that i can get my wife and son's cooked enough without burning them up but with the smoker i am changing strategies.  Now i should be able to get them thick and smoke them to whatever temp they want them. 

    thanks for looking and for all the ideas.  this forum is great!

    Very nice Greg, congrats!

    "Can't beat a thick cut, smoked, reverse sear rib-eye"... Those are not my words, that would be scripture if the good lord wrote an updated Bible!

    thanks folks.  i am planning to buy some bone in cowboy ribeyes and try those.  i never had luck with those on the grill because i can't get them cooked enough for my son and wife.  a couple years ago they did a section of anatomy at school and whatever they did grossed out my oldest boy.  now he can't stand any pink.  hard to do with an inch and a half thick ribeye but now it should be a mini prime rib and i can smoke it to whatever temp he needs without drying it out.
