    Filet Mignon today

    I am not a giant FM fan but I bought theses with a Groupon....allegedly really good---they came frozen and I thawed them in the fridge in their cryovac. An awful lot of juices came out which disturbs me a bit. Thick enough I plan on a reverse sear on the Yoder finishing over the GrillGrates. Serve with Beurre Maitre d’Hotel --- I will let you know how it turns out! But if there are any great suggestions I will listen!

    Them should be good. I rarely eat FM's. Any meat frozen will lose juices when thawed. If you dry brine with salt for 12-24 hours that would help. You have any Kosher salt??

        Wow, nice pics and nice meat. My wife would just eat the bacon, she is well done all the way. Good thing we don't eat steak often.

          Those look really good. I personally like more sear though. What was your sear method?

            I normally do a lot more sear... My normal approach is to take the steaks off 10-15 F below the target temp, coat with oil and then pepper while I push the panel deal in and crank the grill to the max temp below Grill Grates. Trouble was I had to start searing before the grill got up to temp---that is to say almost immediately at temps about 350... If I wait (no time today) I get uniform deep brown sear.

              Sounds like the perfect approach Fracmeister. A good filet is a rare treat for my mouth. Soooo goood, even if it's from a porterhouse I'm happy.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              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.

              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!

              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.
