Thanks Bear!  Mrs. Red's tater recipe...couldn't be easier:  chunk the spud, coat in olive oil, stir in a packet of onion soup mix until all the tater chunks are coated...bake @ 425.

As I remember, took about 10-15 minutes.

Thanks Red,

Mrs Bear always makes "Roasted Reds", but only adds EVOO & parsley.

I gotta get her to try the onion soup mix.

Nicely done Red! Those are some fine looking ribeyes. I agree with the others, medium rare, and if you're gonna miss, miss on the rare side! I built a searing basket for my Kamado Kooker specifically for reverse searing ribeyes.

Thanks Toby! 

 

This is what I want...These are pics of SmokinGrk's Yoder...the 3 panels in the left side of his pit are the GrillGrates sear kit that Yoder sells as an accessory.  Rec Tec has announced that they will be making a set of these available soon for my pit.

This is only anecdotal evidence so far, because I don't have enough high-temp cooks under my belt with it yet to give accurate empirical info.  I believe that for grilling at temps of 450* and higher, it is burning on the high side of 2.5 lbs. pellets per hour.

 

Overall I have burned between 30-35 lbs. of pellets so far in around 22 hours of total cook time in the new pit.  That includes a lot more low and slow cooking than high temp grilling, and also includes a range of ambient conditions from cool and windy to warm and still, but it looks like I'm gonna average about 1.5 lbs. per hour of pellet consumption.

 

I'll know more and post results each time I finish a full bag of pellets.

Red,

That is some nice looking beef !  I appreciate the tip on the onion mix. I grew up eating potato chips with Lipton Soup Onion Mix & sour cream as a dip so I could see why that works with roasted taters.  Great Job !

Hey Red:
If you really want to eat a great steak, save your pennies and find a butcher who will cut you a couple of 16 oz prime ribeyes. Yeah, you'll pay $20 or so per pound but as the old saying goes... "How you gonna keep'em down on the farm after they've seen Paree." if you get what I'm saying.
