    I thought it would be great to see what people are cooking up outdoors for dinner, plus it gives you ideas.

    These are 3 Aberdeen Angus Steaks weighing in at a nice 400 g each or just over 14 ounces if you are old school like me, cooked medium rare over Oak logs.

    They look great. Medium rare is too well done for me though - I would bring them up to room temperature before slapping them on the grill and cook them blue... mmmmmm
  3. Medium rare is how I like them :)

    I tend to choose the rareness depending on where i am eating.. IE, a cheap pub dinner with not the best piece of steak ill go Medium, with a rump id go medium.

    But if its a good quality steak id go rare usually..

    Heres part of what i had for dinner, a teaser from my first ever smoke (just sorting pics and post):

  5. As per the movie " just take off the horns, wipe it's a** and throw it on the plate!".  For me it's rare to medium rare TOPS.  I am also lucky in that the Missus also likes her steak the same.  Many times you will find one likes rare and one likes well done.  Looks GREAT James.  Love a bit of oak.  When are you gonna get some mesquite and pecan?  I am trying to give you my money.  Need some help here.  [​IMG]

    AHHH!  By the way; I don't seem to have gotten the e-mail/PM inviting me to dinner.  Maybe a problem with e-mail?  I can send you my phone number if it would help.  Just saying.  Keep Smokin!

    No Danny - Sprite and Coors Light are totally different. I bet you have hidden your fair share of beers in Sprite cooler sleeves tho in your time [​IMG]

    Think you just quoted yourself!
  14. Ok.  So I can't type or spell.  Does that make me a bad person??  For that matter I can't make good BBQ but I try HARD.  That should count for something!

    Did a small sirloin on the Weber yesterday, first time I've used my Maverick and I was impressed. Was happy with the taste and smoke ring too but need to sort something out about getting some

    gravy.Didn't let the joint rest long enough, was under pressure to deliver !

    Hi Wade, I managed to keep the temp between 220 and 270 for just short of 3 hours, had a spike to 300 at the start and a drop to 170 towards the end as the coals ran out ( 34 Aussie heat beads and two 1" square by 5" bits of cherry) The Maverick was great as I only lifted the lid twice during the whole cook. May try a pork shoulder if the weather holds for the BH weekend [​IMG]
