    Cooked a nice steak in my Ooni Koda 16

    Title pretty much says it all. This was my third time cooking steaks in my Ooni Koda 16 but this was definitely the best.

    This was a dry aged Australian Wagyu NY strip from Pursuit Farms. Amazing steak and I was very happy with how it turned out. Great sear on this steak, super tender, and full of flavor.

    Your steak looks terrific. Great use of the Ooni 16. I don't want to hijack your post, but since you mentioned Ooni 16, I did something like that tonight as well. Only mine was a "Select" grade Ribeye; local meat market said they were delivered "Select" grade by accident,so were selling them at $12.99 Lb. (cheap for this meat market). Since they looked so nice and lean, I thought why not sous vide it and then sear in the Ooni 16. Here are some pics of that cook in the order it happened. Really pretty tasty, and tender enough. Again, sorry about hijacking... I just wanted to emphasize what a great tool the Ooni 16 is for our craft!

      Looks great! I have had some pretty tasty select grade steaks. In my opinion the grade is only one factor to take into account when choosing a steak.

    I presume you pre-heat the pan. How long does that take?

      Polarbear777 It only took about 4 or 5 minutes to heat everything up. I got the pan up to about 500 degrees before I put the steaks in. Next time I might try to get it a bit hotter. Most of the sear came from the heat on top of the oven and I would like some to come from the pan.

    Looks great. I bought a cast iron fajita pan to do the same thing in my Koda but haven't gotten around to it yet (or made a pizza this summer -- total fail) and can't wait to actually do it. Did you heat the skillet first or just go cold/raw into the Koda?

      Yeah, I heated the pan for a few minutes before putting the steaks in. The pan ends up SUPER hot and my bbq gloves themselves didn't cut it for handling the pan. Needed a pot holder as well.

    @JoeSousa looks great, Makes me want to try Wagyu. Does it pair well with PBR?
    Ooni Koda 16 is not just for Pizza anymore.


      Very cool. How weird is it that JoeSousa and treesmacker both did this on the same night? You both did well.

Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
