Did 2 Ribeyes on the new pellet pit this afternoon. I wanted to see if I could do a smoke and a sear all on the same rig.
Mrs. Red picked these up at Wal Mart's meat counter. I asked her to buy the thickest ones she could find, these weren't bad.
Light coating of olive oil, dusted them with McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning.
Wrapped to rest in the fridge for an hour.
Into the Rec Tec @ 225*, with a mix of oak/apple/maple in the AMNTS.
About an hour later, IT is 130*...Time to pull the steaks for long enough to crank up the Rec Tec to 450* and give them a good grilling.
The steaks went back on the grill for about 3 minutes per side after I got it up to 450.
Plated with some of our favorite roasted onion taters. I loved the color, but wish the RT made better grill sear marks. I'll eventually have to have a sear kit with some of those Grill Grates.
Money shot...just about a perfect medium, which is about as rare as I can get Mrs. Red to eat.
Real pleased so far with the new pellet pit. 4 cooks to date, and each is getting better. Thanks for checking it out...
