    Nothing fancy. Had a few New york strip steaks that needed a little reverse sear. Fired up the mini-wsm, Kingsford Blue, cherry, pecan. Ran the smoker at 200°, then seared the steaks off. Gotta love the mini for that! Served with garlic mashers and steamed broccoli.


    Swimming in Worcestershire for a few hours.


    Prepping the mini, just starting to snow!

    Fresh off the grill. I cancelled the sear. I got distracted and didn't get them out of the smoke in time. I didn't want them over cooked!






    ENJOY!!!!

    I love the color on those steaks. I agree, far better to skip the sear than risk cooking your meat well done (shudder). Your BBQ guard pig is doing a fantastic job, BTW.

    Have a great day!

    Thank you Adam!
    Thank you Clarissa! The steaks were at the perfect stage so there was no way I was going to sear them off and have (gasp) overdone steaks!
    We like them too! I agree with the searing. I usually only do it when there's guests to oooooooo and aweeeeeeeee!

    Thanks!
    Thank you Disco! These guys had great smokey flavor too! I really like the cherry pecan combo Ive been using on steak this year! So Tasty!
     
  9. Great looking steaks.  Can't beat that pecan/cherry mix, going on the Christmas bird round here.  It was a shame you had to eat the potato and broccoli with only a little pat of butter. [​IMG]   LOVE that guard pig!  Keep Smokin!
