    2020 Birthday Cook — USDA Prime NY Strip

    Every year, I buy a hunk ‘o meat from Costco. I like to butcher my own meat and cook it! My wife prefers to go out to eat, so that’s what we do for her.

    Here’s my NY Strip hunk that I cut up. USDA Prime. Great marbling, just maybe a little skinny to what I prefer.

    It rained here on my birthday and the next day, so I had to pan sear them (normally I like to hover them over a charcoal chimney). On my birthday, the kids were loud and clamoring for attention, and I forgot to cold shock them. That left me a little over-done steak, but plenty delicious. I topped it with a ginormous shrimp (biggest I’ve ever seen) for my wife, and for me, I prefer scallops. Beef love, of course, which REALLY enhances flavor for the steak and the seafood.

    The second day, I remembered to cold shock it, and I put some Holy Cow rub on there, which was REALLY good. It sure helps to have full concentration when crunch time hits (but I sure love my kids clamoring for my attention)!!

    I never get tired looking at grilled (or pan fried) steak. Always gets my mouth watering. The steaks look great. Yum.

                  Great looking steaks! That’s my favorite cut, and I buy a couple of full strip loins each year just to cut into steaks. Once I smoked half of one like prime rib, for a holiday meal with the family, and it was really good that way too.

                    Did you sous vide these? I’m not understanding the need to “cold shock” unless you were SV’ing them. They look great, btw.

                        Looks great. Happy birthday. Can’t beat that price either. I also like that the whole loin lets you cut steaks that aren’t blade tenderized like Costco’s cut steaks.

                          I agree, I can’t believe they still do that...especially to Prime steaks.

                          The last time I was in Costco I talked to one of the butchers and he told me they don't blade tenderize prime cuts, BUT, since they can't guarantee someone didn't mess up and send some prime cuts through the tenderizer, they have to label them as tenderized. I told him that's a shame, because I'm not going to cook a prime steak to 165.

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      Placeholder

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      Placeholder

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Placeholder

                      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.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Placeholder

                      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 amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
