    Tomahawk on the Parrilla

    I bought a big bad tomahawk a week ago, just waiting for the right time. Yesterday the sun was shining, and I had my newly tweaked Parrilla ready for action. So I fired it up with birch wood, and kept feeding the flames until I had some glowing embers. The tomahawk was a 4lb'er, almost 3 inches thick.

    I grilled it over medium heat for 40 minutes, then let it rest for 10. Target temp: 58Β° C / 136Β° F. I just sprinkled salt on it, and then ate it right off the cutting board with a glass of red wine. It doesn't get much better!


    Fire, fire, fire!

      Thank you Steve! This one is definitely gonna go on my 'heavy rotation' list for grilling. I really enjoy 'slow food', and this is a great way of doing it.

              Beautiful steak, great grill and very nice cook. I love the shot of it starting out on the stump!

              Interesting that you used Birch. Is that your "go to" wood there? What other woods do you have readily available in your area?

              Might I suggest that next time you season it with some of this stuff? I tried some the other night and it was really good!

                Thank you! Yes, Birch is everywhere around here. Great wood for direct heat, but I would never (ever) use it for smoke. Might just try that rub, looks like a winner to me ;-)

                That parrilla works like a charm..
                I've tried using birch as smokewood on chicken and it gave a mild but a bit different taste on the meat..

                  I use birch for grilling, but the smoke flavor is NOT good (according to my personal preferences).

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              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.

              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 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.

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              Placeholder

              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.

              Placeholder

              Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
