i liked the prime rib that i made last weekend so much that i decided to finally try a steak on my traeger. I loaded the pellet pooper up with hickory and thawed a couple ribeyes. My butcher sells full ribeyes for $7 a lb so every so often i buy a one and have it cut up into steaks so i always have a supply of ribeyes. just like the prime rib i seasoned it with lawrys. I smoked it for about an hour until IT was 125 then seared it on my weber grill for about a minute on each side. one of the best steaks i have ever had. Interesting how the outside turned "smoke ring red" as soon as i threw it on the grill. i have always had my steaks cut kind of thin so that i can get my wife and son's cooked enough without burning them up but with the smoker i am changing strategies. Now i should be able to get them thick and smoke them to whatever temp they want them.
thanks for looking and for all the ideas. this forum is great!
