    Mike D. from west of Portlandia

    I'm just starting out with grilling - in fact, my grill isn't even here yet. I found this site last week and have really appreciated the level-headed and informative nature of its how-to's and mythbusting. I'm glad I read over the product reviews before settling on what I got! Can't wait to develop grilling skills!

    I have a method for steaks that I consider outstanding, that I hope to duplicate on the grill:

    Stainless, oven-safe pan with avocado oil, on stove at Warp 10
    Oven pre-heated to 450
    Steaks taken out of fridge, patted dry, salted and peppered, and then rub it into the meat
    When oil starts smoking a bit, the steaks go on (carefully) and are not touched for 2.5 minutes
    Flip, and do the other side for 2.5 minutes
    Insert wired probe into one of the steaks
    Put pan into the stove
    Take out when 133
    Devour with great haste

    The downside to this method is the smoke in the kitchen - despite the windows open and a fan blowing the smoke out, it drives my wife nuts, even though I actually love it.

    Really hoping I can hit (or exceed, if possible?) this steak prep method outside on the grill. Looking forward to all of your advice, tips and tricks!

    EDIT: specs are as follows - Broil King Signet 320, Thermapen Mk4, and Thermopro TP10

        Welcome aboard! You fit right in with the taking of great delight of the smokey kitchen that drives your wife nuts. In the devouring with haste don't forget to chew each piece with the appropriate designated chews, found on page 39 of Meathead's book. Eat good & have fun!

                I can't believe I just saw that. Those actually looked too good to eat. As a man I admire once said, "It belongs in a museum!"


                  Welcome to the pit! I guess that oil creates a lot of smoke in the kitchen. Try the reverse sear method on the grill instead, you'll like it.

                              A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them.

                              Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                              Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                              3 burner gas grill

                              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
