So yesterday I had a whole Sunday with nothing to do...no family events, meetings, holidays, appointments, NADA! So what's a guy to do? Especially without any sports on during the day...ugh...is it football season yet??? (Tonight tho...Go Heat!!!). So what did I do? Well I spent 5 hours detailing car...followed by cooking my wonderful wife a "smokey" dinner
On Friday I bought two 8oz filet's for $3.99/each (which is a heck of a deal), wrapped those puppies in bacon, sprinkled on the Montreal, and cooked them using the reverse sear method. I set up my Weber 22.5 up for indirect heat (the brick method) and used some Cabernet wood chips since red wine and steak are always a great pair. I smoked to an internal temp of 120 degrees which took about 30 minutes. Thereafter, I stoked my coals as hot and I could and seared the steak for about a minute a side. I also cooked some asparagus accompanied with a sweet potato.
All in all...a productive day...along with a tasty dinner!
The meat...big thumbs up!!!
Note indirect with my patented "brick" method!
Quality Control Specialist "Red"...always hanging around the kitchen!
The finished product!!! Can't wait to do this again!
