    Reverse Sear Timing

    I have a pellet grill and a set of Grillgrates and am able to reverse sear to my satisfaction. I slow smoke whatever – steaks, tri-tip etc. by taking meat to about 110-115* IT. Having the GGrates in from the start so they will heat up faster, I remove meat, wrap and hold while I crank the grill up to 400-450* set temp which brings it to 500* + ambient and surface which successfully sears. See below. My question is assuming the wrapped meat is in my Cambro, how long can it sit before I put it back on to sear without something unwanted happening.….not because the GGrates aren’t hot, but just because I might need or want to delay the sear or slip off to the tavern for a quickie or something similar.

    My thought would be if you are anticipating more than a few minutes, you might take them to finish temp and use the sear for light reheating. I don’t have any practice at it though, longest I’ve ever gone between is probably 15 mins.

      I’ve used a little different process. I reverse sear to desired end temp. But you have to let the temp drop by 20 degrees or so before searing which will take a while. I’ve let it sit for an hour or two and then sear right before serving without issues. I learned this from Jacob Burton- who has some great YouTube continent -and Franklin’s steak book.

        So what yer askin is, ya wanna know if you can park the meat somewhere, somehow, then leave the seen, walk to yer vehickle, drive to a local establishment, get out of the vehickle, walk in, sit down & order one brewski, one mind you, yes you inferred one brewski, now if it’s a glass of hard licker that is a mighty big shot, then recreate the whole trip home. The answer is, Aw c’mon man!

        As long as the temp of the meat stays in a safe range, I see no problems with a rest then sear,

          I always go with the side of caution. I would finish the steak.

            I would suggest that you drop off the tri tip at my house on the way to the pub. I'll cook it up and...well....burp.

              The meat will not be in the safe zone technically as it will be below 140*, but time in the zone is as critical too. On Thermoworks Blog article on Food Safety it states that cooked food can be at room temperature for as long as 2 hours and then should be pitched. Good explanations here Food safety: proper cooling | ThermoWorks

                You are correct. I should have made the time/ temp thing more clear in my comment.
